Count me as another who has a full-time job and just does this on the side because I want to. In fact, if not for the four Topps sketch card gigs I've done during the past 18 months, I may very well have not drawn at all.
And while it was a lot of work, it was fun, and a challenge. I thrive on deadlines -- a holdover from my newspaper editor days. An aside: Transparent to the card recipient is the amount of advance research I did for each sketch gig. I'd estimate from four to seven days -- depending on the series. The two Star Wars Galactic Files gigs took the longest because I had to watch all of the films again and do some screen captures.
