Just completed a venture into the sports card sketchcard field.  Leaf Trading Cards is releasing a football set in a couple of weeks and I was honored to be included in the set.  It was pretty neat, and I got to paint a few guys that I wouldn’t normally paint.  Lots of history in this release.  Look for it soon.

Here’s a sample of what the inserted cards might look like.

Mars Attacks is a science fiction trading card series released in 1962. The cards feature artwork by science-fiction artist Wallace Wood and tell the story of the invasion of Earth by cruel, hideous Martians. The cards depicted futuristic battle scenes and bizarre methods of Martian attack, torture and slaughter. The story ends with a combined Earth invasion fleet attacking Mars by landing on the planet and destroying it.

The cards proved popular with children but their explicit gore and implied sexual content caused an outcry, leading the company to halt production. The cards became collectors’ items.

In the 1980s Topps began developing merchandise based on the Mars Attacks storyline, including mini-comic books and card reprints. An expanded set of 100 cards was issued in 1994.

In 2012, in celebration of the franchise’s 50th anniversary, Topps has partnered with a variety of companies on a merchandising campaign to include comic books (via IDW Publishing), bobble heads and vinyl dolls (Funko), action figures and plush (Mezco Toyz), costumes (Incogneato), statues and busts (Quarantine Studio), electronics skins (Gelaskins) and a hardcover commemorative book (Abrams Books). Topps will also be issuing a special 50th Anniversary card set.

Here are a few more examples of my contribution to the card set.  I’ll show a few more eventually, but I’m leaving a few to the imagination and surprise.

I’m on board as a sketch card artist for the latest offering from Upper Deck for the Avengers Assemble Trading Card release for the Avengers movie.  I had a blast with these, and I’ve created a few puzzle cards as well as a few stand alone cards.  I’m not going to show them all and ruin the surprise for everyone.  All of these are hand painted individually, all hand cut by hand by me.  No mechanical reproductions here.  Each is unique to itself.

So, here we are.  A couple of examples of what you can expect to find from me.

A couple of Iron Man 3 card puzzles with one stand alone one.

a couple of 2 card puzzles featuring Captain America, Iron Man, and a few single Captain Americas

A giant 4 card puzzle of Thor.

Avengers gotta get around right?  4 card puzzles of a Helicarrier and Quinjet.  On actual comic pages pulled and cut from vintage comics.
