I don’t normally do posts like this, so forgive me if it comes across as needy or begging. That’s not the intention.
Today (at this very moment 3/2 9:16am) my wife is undergoing a major knee surgery. Needless to say, it’s expensive.
So I need to move some art to help offset the cost of the procedure. Everything in this post is available. I also have plenty of official stock blank sketchcards available for commission. Drop me a line on those. Commissions are always open as well.
If you see something you like, make an offer. Everything will help. Please share this post with anyone you think would like some art.

I’m honored to announce that I am officially on the upcoming Avengers Assemble Trading Card and Marvel Beginnings 2 sets as an official sketch card artist. I’ve got a couple of cool things planned for these sets and I’ve already begun work on them, however they all remain blank. Sometimes the prep work seems to take more time than the actual creation of the card itself. I do have plans on puzzles for this go around. So keep your eyes peeled for these trading card sets to be released later in 2012.
The Avengers Assemble Trading Card set is the official trading card for the upcoming Avengers movie.
The Marvel Beginnings 2 set is a follow up to the kick ass Marvel Beginnings set released last year.
I’ll update with more specifics about the products when I have them. Both sets are being issued by Upper Deck.

Here are a few blank sketch variants I’ve recently completed. Some are available in the shop. A blank sketch variant is actually an entire comic book with a blank front and back cover. So, you can get your favorite artist to draw a sketch on it, or you can do one yourself. Everyone should take a shot at one of these, it’s fun and you get your own personalized comic book that is a true one of one. I have a couple of blank’s that have not been drawn on as of yet, so if there is something you’d like done please give me a shout and I’ll be happy to work something out for you. It’s a good way of getting original art without breaking the bank. And they make great gifts for comic book fans.
