Ok. Why don't you want me to have money =(
I don't think you realize just how much I like bees.





How much do you want for that card right now?

That's actually the promo for the Insectae set. It's going to be printed on metal like the Carnival insert, except with a gold finish instead of the silver. I'm sure you'll be able to get one.

Also, send artist Lark Sudol a message. She was selling the large original I believe.

Thanks!

(Oh, and if you notice behind all those bees, there's a squid as well. I hope those artists on The Deep know there's a big squid collecting market out there too!

I'll be sure to let them know! The giant squid and kraken were pretty popular for the Cryptids set as well. Also, the card back design has a giant octopus on it, shooting out ink to make The Deep logo, in blue foil.

This set intrigues me. Although I'm not a practicing biologist by any means, it was the focus of my undergraduate studies. Initially I was not really interested so much in this set, but these detailed perspectives of the insects remind me of my zoology classes and the years I spent as a high school biology teacher. Decisions, decisions... Its not helping any that Lark did such great work for the promo cards.

Lark is pretty cool by the way. I have the distinguished honor of being the very first person to commission a convention sketch from her. She was pretty nervous about the whole thing... it was funny. Anyway, if you dig the bees you should definitely get in touch with her. I recall she had the original artwork for the grasshopper at the spring show where that promo was distributed. For the life of me, I can't remember what she was asking for it.

Pfft, I'm not waiting for a promo card when Bees are on the line. Art Acquired! Thanks for letting me know!






Lark was real cool to talk to about the artwork, glad you brought her aboard! Looking forward to the rest of her work and the rest of the bee sketches in the set!

I found a dead hornet between my window and the screen. All I could think about was this set. I wondered, "Should I see if Ryan wants me to send this to him?" Then I discarded it

If it was already dead, we'll pass.

However, 1 in 10 boxes will have live ants that come spilling out when you open it... and 1 in 50 boxes will have live bees. Case hits are back!

Update!

We're going to start posting the artist previews for both of the upcoming sets, starting with Tim Proctor's excellent sketches! We'll also have more info on the inserts throughout the month leading up to release.

Goal is still end of the month, but we'll know more once the sketches are in (or not in). The artwork deadline is Thursday.

We've decided to go ahead and show off ALL the sketches this time around, instead of just 3 or 4 from each artist!

First up is a local Las Vegas artist new to sketch cards, Warren Wucinich. This is his first set.

How does one contact an artist about originals?

See if they have a website. Otherwise, most can be found on Facebook. Some are members here, too.
