Easter Trauma Trading Cards

My newest limited card set takes aim at Easter.

There are 5 cards, each limited to 50 copies. The deluxe set, limited to the first 12 of those 50 sets, also features the wrapper, a piece of gum, and a color sketch. The backs feature sad little tales about various aspects of Easterville. This photo shows the sketch that accompanies set #1 of 12.

Hearse Talk

I have been in the artistic doldrums of late. Nary an inspiration to be found. I guess that happens sometimes, but I hate it. Blah.

My Shiverbones compadre from the North has made something wonderful though... "Hearse Talk". Michael Bonfiglio shot & edited this, and came up with the grooving theme music. My old pal Halsey does the interview. Fun stuff, I can't wait to see episode 2!

New Art Bits

This is the prototype for my large jointed veggie-Cat. It's about 15" x 20", and has 5 points of movement. I thought the legs were to wonky, so I am redoing them before I go ahead with officially releasing the design. This prototype is on ebay this week, along with...

The Newest 4"x6" postcard painting. This is similar to the 4 Veggie People portrait paintings I did with this sort of border over the last year.

I started doing some sketch cards for "Spookshow Funnies" a week ago, here is what 4 of them looked like.

Finally, some of my sketch cards from the new Wacky Packages postcard sets are hitting ebay from various sellers, and they are selling for way more than I ever thought! All the sketch cards are doing well, I guess only having 50 by each artist isn't nearly enough.

ebay #200447504942 has the Klepto hand "Shawl Grab" it ends in an hour and is at $156, last night ebay #130372833860, the Klepto "Umbrella Grab" ended with a BIN of $125

My first Wacky Packages Painting!

I have a painting included in the newest Topps Wacky packages postcard set which just became available today. I loved these stickers as a kid, and still do as an adult :-) I have dreamed about being part of the history of Wacky Packages for as long as I can remember, so this is hugely exciting to me. Here is a scan of the original art before any pre-press work was done on it. The gag was written by Mark Parisi, I translated it into paint.

Each of the 5 artists in this set sketched 50 cards, and these are randomly included in the 250 Limited edition sets. At this point the limited sets are half gone after 2 hours of being available, so If you have any desire to go for a set with a sketch card, time is running out. The sets can be bought here:
