Sketchcard Gallery Update: Marvel Greatest Battles

   Now that the Marvel Greatest Battles set has been released and I've found a few minutes to post some pics, I've got (almost) all of my 9-case incentive cards now posted in my Sketchcard Gallery. They are all full color 4-card puzzles and they were all released uncut. Most have 2 figures with a "Comic page" background, but a few had more characters and needed more room... they got a regular background. 

 If the 2 Secret Wars Sketchcards look familiar, I did 2 very similar Sketches for the Bronze Age release and got a very good response. These were done due to popular demand and because I heard a few "complaints" that they were hard to get, so I did these new ones to give a few more chances, just a bit updated and I fixed little things that bothered me about the first set.

Enjoy the visuals.

Marvel Bronze Age Sketches Posted.

The Marvel The Bronze Age set from Rittenhouse Archives is now officially released and I've posted all my Sketches over in my Sketchcard Galleries page. All 43 full color sketches that are in-box pack inserted and all 196 "Bronze" color 6 - case incentive sketches. I've also uploaded the 25 two-card "Bronze" colored puzzles that were rondomly inserted into hot boxes. (And possibly regular boxes, not sure on that one) 

FAQ: Artists Proof availability? Sorry, although I am getting some AP's for this set, I just don't have the time to get to any. If I do dig up a little time, I will post everywhere about it and make them available.

Marvel Bronze Age Promo Detail

 I just thought I would post a better pic, one that you could actually see, of the Spider-man artwork used on the back of the Marvel Bronze Age promo cards. This was actually the first card I drew for the set and probably took more time on it than I should, but one has to warm up some how.

Update: 3/12 - Pages 11, 12 & 13 posted

Update: 3/13 - Pages 14 & 15 posted (Note: It took a little longer to post this as I had to rework some of the pages yet to be posted as I just found out one of my 2002 cards was rejected. "Too much blood" or something to that fact. Oh well. 

Update: 3/14 - Pages 16 & 17 posted 

It's now out today, so enjoy all the wrapper rippin!

Marvel Greatest Heroes Trading Cards (Avengers)


As you may or may not have heard, I've been working on Rittenhouse Archives Marvel Greatest Heroes Trading Card set. (See my last post about their Artist of the Day promotion for a bunch of the artwork) It's set for a March 14 2012 release and from what I've seen It's shaping up to be a really nice set. 

My Sketchcards will be the 9 - Case Incentive cards in which I've been asked quite alot about the Sketches. Due to popular demand, an amazing response from my Marvel 70th cards, and a direct request from on high...(Rittenhouse) I have returned to the dating of the cards theme.

Much like the Marvel 70th cards , I was limited to only 150 or so cards. With the long history of The Avengers, it wasn't easy to narrow down the list of everything I needed / wanted to draw and still have a well paced and even handed representation of all the years. Like all comics, some years are much more history packed than others and I tried not to let the "leaner" years suffer. There were many cards and characters I couldn't fit on the list without taking away from other areas. That being said, I was really happy with the way these cards came out. I spent more time on them than I planned, but I got in a groove and I went with it.

Whatdja draw?Whatdja draw?Whatdja draw?... That was the most asked question. Unfortunately, I just finished my cards late last week and I know they haven't all been approved yet so I can't show any until I get the ok. You'll just have to be a little more patient. I will post as soon as I can. But I can give some details.

 The Avengers is a team, and I drew ALOT of Team cards. (Another thing that slowed me down a bit) Again, I dated them all, as you can see in this detail, but this time on the upper right side. I tried to get the most important 1rst appearances of characters, last appearances of charcters (i.e, Deaths) new team formations, and tried to pick the most important moments to represent each year or at least the most interesting to draw and to spread off into most of the spin-off Avengers titles. (I would have liked to have had another 50 cards to work with) There were a few puzzles and yes... there is one puzzle piece that matches to another past set. (I will not help, you're on your own)

There it is, I will update this when I can and I appreciate all the emails. Thanks
