Perhaps @Tim can upload the first batch of sketches for discussion. :-)
I can show you the two i've seen pulled around the office. A Jeremy Scott and a Lee Bradley. Neither are "gems" but both are nice.

And that's the point-- we tried not to put too many rushed stinkers into the set. There will never be ZERO because we can't control what artists do and can only afford to scrap so many... but between "trimming the fat" so to speak and finding a new crop of talent this time around, the average quality is going to be much higher on this set.

You guys aren't going to get a true sense for at least a week. Plus people tend to always expect at least one Charles Hall/Gary Kezele/Ted Dastick-level sketch in their case, and the odds are ALWAYS stacked against them on those types!
