Default JEREMY LIN 1/1 Sketchcard

Hey guys,

Because of my interest in sports cards, I wanted to start doing some sketch cards just for fun.

Let me know what you think, i'll probably be doing more soon, maybe even make some extra cash later on.

Anyone happen to know any contacts from Panini for potential offering them the idea of these cards?
I know in the past Upper Deck and Topps have had sketch cards inserted in their non-sports packs. Don't know how i could potential pitch an idea like this.

Here's the first one: Jeremy Lin 1/1 Sketchcard (Updated Feb 16, 2012)



Here's a commission I did for a forum member. Chris Webber 1/1 Sketch Card

Most of Q's sketches look like the subject has Downs Syndrome.

Honestly, you have the best 'facial' realism skills of any other 'ebay artist' I've seen yet. Very nice, sir

The card on the left is nice, but the card on the right is out of this world nice. Great Work!

Very nice work. Great detail. Love the detail on the hair.

If you want to hook up with another talented artist you may want to pm Ted.
