Casual Friday #6

Hey look at this, I was able to sneak in a Casual Friday image after all. I'm cheating a little as this image of Wolverine, that I drew this morning, was going to be for a 2-piece Wolverine sketch card puzzle that I was planning on doing up for the X-men set I'm currently trying to finish. You can even see the tick marks where the cards would meet in the middle. I was hoping to do a bunch of these for the set but got a little carried away with the detail and realized there was no way I was doing all that a bunch of times over for just sketch cards.
So, here it is as just an art piece.

X-Men Origins: Wolverine Card Set (Part 2)

As promised, here's the link to the Wolverine Galleries.

Back to work, almost done, can't wait to take a day off.



X-Men Origins: Wolverine Card Set

Rittenhouse is releasing an X-Men Origins Wolverine Card set on 4/29/09. More info can be seen here at the Wolverine Page. I was able to squeeze in a few sketches to be included in the set. A few meaning 26, I thought that was a nice number. Enough has been posted by Rittenhouse now, that I can post this with a few more details. Here's my checklist for those of you that always email me for it.


As you can see by the sample pic of "Sabretooth" I've tried a different style for these as I needed to change things up a bit just to keep myself interested and get you guys something different to look at. I will post all the images in my ComicSpace Gallery after the release date. (I actually did 27 cards, but the first one I did, trying out a new style and failing miserably, came out so horrendously that I had to put it out of it's, and my, misery. It was chucked.)

On a separate note, I was really enjoying doing those Casual Friday drawings, but I'm closing in on a heavy and tight deadline for the X-Men set and need every minute of time I can get to meet it. It may be a few weeks before anything gets "casual" around here.



New Releases: Killer Space Robots and Stretchy Heroes


   There are 2 new releases in the past 2 days. The first, which started shipping yesterday, is the Doctor Who Big Screen Additions Collection from Stricktly Ink. This Dr. Who set is based around the two 60's movies, "Dr. Who and the Daleks" and "Daleks Invasion Earth 2150 A.D." This was another Stricktly Ink set I drew awhile back and, like their other releases, only did 22 cards for the set. (I'll post the gallery soon and update this as well here) 

  The other set out today is the Fantastic Four Archives set released from Rittenhouse Archives,  who I must say, have really been knocking the comic sets out of the park lately. This new one really looks top quality. The sketch artists have gotten a lot better, must be all the practice. I have all 150 of my cards in a gallery on my ComicSpace page

  (Ahhhh, caffeine is just starting to kick in.... what a wonderful feeling)  

Speaking of Sketch Cards, I've finally started cataloging the entire backlog of sets that I've worked on. Holy crap!, I've drawn a lot of cards. Over the years, (since 97-98) between what I've photocopied, scanned, tracked down, downloaded, and aquired with a little help from fans (Special thanks to Tialessa) I've been able to get a really good archive of most of the cards I've drawn. It's taking a bit longer than I planned but my computer will be happy once I've cleared it of all those image files and I'll be happy to get these sketches behind me.

Talk soon.


Catching Up with Other Stuff.

   Happy happy happy, as I've finally finished all my sketch card projects. Those last 550 cards were really killing me. The bulk being Trek cards that were repeat sketches and to keep the mind-numbingness my brain was feeling, I subscribed to a dozen different podcasts to listen to on my Itunes. Some sucked but found a few gems in there.  The Totally Rad Show (videocast) 3 guys from CA talking Comics, Movies, Video Games, and TV. Very cool. Also of note is Indie Spinner Rack. Out of NY and hosted by a friend of mine I went to school with and really great guy, Charlie (Charlito and Mr. Phil) Covering everything about Indie Comics in a fun and really informative way.

Check them out, I'm not kidding! ... and along with some other casts about Macs, Comics, and Tv & Literature, I finished up the card sets with most of my neuro pathways still firing.  
   So I finally got to sit down and catch up with some computer backlog that's been building up and posted all the sketches for The Women Of Marvel Cards I did and can be found here on my Comic Space Galleries Page. I was pretty happy with the Fantastic Four cards I just finished and also got to organize all the scans for those. I'll have those posted also as soon as they get released.  Thanks to all the inquiries about them btw.
   If anyone has any good recommendations for pod or videocasts, let me know. My mind has lately been like a sponge that just needs constant input.
