The signatures aren't foil, they're real. Looks like they're signed with a silver sharpie (sorry if that's what you meant).
Sorry, I meant the gold foil stamping on them. I know they are real sigs, I have 6

Can someone help with these two sketches?
I've searched ebay for every single artist on the sell sheet and cannot match them up.

The first card is by Adam Levine.

You are incorrect. This is just Adam Levine. I know because he's me.

Jeff is a great guy, a fantastic artist and a one-time colleague, but he did not help me on any of my cards. The signature on the front is:

AL
12

As in my initials and the year.

Thanks Adam and welcome to the board!

I guess those on Ebay are incorrect such as this one:
2012: Mars Attacks Heritage: Sketch: Adam Levine & Jeff Zapata | eBay

Is this one yours also?
It has different sig on the front.

2012 Topps Heritage MARS ATTACKS sketch Adam Levine 1/1 color card | eBay

The more cartoony ones with the funny looking pair are inspired by a series of cartoons I did for the official facebook page. You can see them here:

Facebook Funnies | Facebook

Which is why I used that sig. I was doing them on a semi-weekly basis while we waited for the IDW comic to get started, but once that hit, we decided to abandon the comedic angle.

On the Mars Attacks topic fright-rags.com has a limited edition Mars Attacks shirt available for a while.
Thinking of picking one up but I've got too many t-shirts already.

Not less than 40, but less than the 100 I was supposed to do.

I don't think i'm allowed to say any more than that.

To date, only three of the 23 Mars Attacks Heritage set sketch card variations I drew have popped up on eBay, so here's all 23. I drew 100+ cards total.

Are you obligated to wait for them to show up on the market before you can post them? Just curious.

No. I can share them as soom as Topps approves them. I'm just normally not a sketch card guy and was not a forum member until the other day.

Sure did! "Mars Attacks" and I go way back. I think I'm the only one of the 131 sketch card artists for this 50th anniversary series who actually bought the original Mars Attacks cards when they were released in 1962. I was eight years old at the time and I bought my packs from a counter display box at a local drug store in my Chicago neighborhood. Too bad I wasn't smart enough to save them.

I've been stalking these threads for a week or two now and have been dying to grab some Mars Attacks. I used to collect heavily back in the 90s and other than a a couple packs here and there since then, I had not really purchased anything until two weeks ago. I went in heavy!

After spending about $1k on Topps Archives, Leaf Cuts, Tier 1, Inception, Allen & Ginter and various blasters....I did not get anything really worth more than maybe $30. So, I was going to just quit again.

Then I found Mars Attacks at Target and bought 11 packs. Loved them and wanted to buy a bunch of hobby but didn't. WELL.........

That all changed. Had a generally crappy day yesterday and decided to remedy that by buying my first case ever, Mars Attacks So, my first post here is to say look out, I will post my results of the case break as soon as it gets ripped!
