By that I mean they may not be aware of the card community nor do they care. They work on sketch cards only as an assignment. And the only obligation they have is to the company that hires them. Which on contract only requires the artist to draw a sketch that needs to be approved. No more, no less. This is probably why we see some artists taking on such high volume work and produce quick sketches such as the one mentioned in this discussion. If you step back and see it from the point of view of someone NOT in the sketch card community. There is perfectly NOTHING wrong with the sketch when you consider what was contractually expected of the hiring company. Just thought I'd share a another possible perspective to this.
Lak: That's a very fair point and it's worthwhile to consider that perspective. After some recent discussions about this, I think what you are suggesting may be the best explanation for the disconnect.

Agreed! I love hearing from the artists, even if we disagree at times. They bring a lot of very interesting information to the table and have certainly helped shape my buying and collecting habits.
I no longer own any sports cards in case you find one of my old selling threads. Sorry.
