Default Island Dreams x 10 Packs ... Scan Heavy!

We don't (or at least, didn't) collect sketch cards but when I saw this, I couldn't resist. My wife and I are both in our medical residency and I want to do a fellowship in pediatric orthopaedics, so we both happen to work at many childrens hospitals. Seemed like a wonderful thing to put our monthly card money into.

In any case, we were blown away by the amazing quality of the artwork, but have absolutely no idea who any of the artists are. We're sketch "newbies" and I have only heard of a few of them. In any case, we were very happy, and I wish my wife was named "Kathy" instead of Amanda. You'll see why later.


Vanessa Lane

Tsuneo Sanda

Marco Carillo



George Webber


J. Fer Galicia


"Greenwoman" Dianne Wickes


Marco Carrillo


"Eisu" Remy Mokhtar


Scott Zambelli


Nestor Celario Jr.



Now for the fun stuff and pictures we really liked...


Redemptions, stoked about the Locoduck one!


Our only 4x6 but a beauty by Claire Pacheco, with gold leaf embedded on it!


Pablo Diaz, my wife really likes


Solly Mohamed, I think


Emily Riggsby


Dreek Owen


"Locoduck" Michael Duron


Tim Proctor


Scott Ethan Glenn. Literally breathtaking.


Johnny Segura art - Robert Greenidge Sketchagraph


Johnny Segura art - Mac McAnally Sketchagraph


Don Pedici Jr. art - Jimmy Buffett Sketchagraph... Inscribed to Kathy

Tons of fun.

congrats on the nice sketches! This was a great set to start with, the price was great, and the sketches are very high quality, and the vast majority are color. I've noticed that the artists really put in a lot of work on charity sets (since they are donating their time to a good cause, and doing only a limited number of sketches), so in a way I like these sets more than regular sets, since you get some really nice sketch cards and help out a good cause.

That 4x6 is great, and the Jimm Buffet sketchagraph is cool. And both bird sketches are amazing.

I'm pretty sure the card you have identified as Kat Laurange is actually Vanessa Lane, it is definitely not Kat Laurange though.

Thanks, we tried to figure it out but again we're newbies. The second is Sanda for sure, but the other two ?? Had nothing signed on the back
