Any suggestions on printing?

The poster would be the easy way for everyone to view the cards, but like you, I'd like to have the set once we're finished.
Probably easier if all of the cards were printed on one sheet as a set, maybe arranging them 6 x 5 or so. Since you have an odd number of cards, make a checklist to get an even 30.

As far as cost for a nice 2 sided run, I have NO idea. I guess you could print them with selvage in between and guide lines for where to cut into individual cards (for those that'd want to do so).

Here's the latest three Mars Attacks sketch cards for the upcoming miniatures game.

Totally at random, the city in the game is named Greenville, my hometown. I decided to draw a Greenville, SC landmark, the Falls Park Bridge, being blown up by the martian invaders. At the bottom,my wife, one of our Dachshunds and myself are running from the destruction.

Just wanted to show off the card I received in trade from BO's own, Pablo Diaz. It looks great in my growing horror-themed sketch card collection!

THANKS PABLO!

Here's a 4-card collaboration with fellow artist, Chris Hamer. We were asked to do 'martian robots vs martian zombies'. Crazy idea....and my first multi-card collaboration! We started working on it like 6 months ago so I'm glad to see it finished.

Thought I'd show off some off my Marvel Premier cards. First let me say this is the most fun I've had on a set. The card stock was amazing though the silver foil on the single cards was slightly distracting. In total, I did about 110 cards counting each type - singles, booklets, 3 and 4-card panels.

I'll start w/ the 4-card panel ones. I actually combined four of them into two large puzzles of Rocket Raccoon and Man-Thing (because he was a childhood fav).

Nice job with the cards. I probably won't be buying any of this product, but I'll definitely be keeping an eye on the secondary market for singles.

Those puzzles will probably be used for redemptions. At least, that is what they did last time.

Looking forward to seeing your base sketches.

Good to know about the two puzzles being redemptions. I'm guessing they'll fold the other multi-panel cards and insert into packs or will they be box toppers? Seems collectors wouldn't want the cards folded.

Since you wanted to see sketches of the singles, I'll start with those next!!!

The panel cards were folded and inserted previously. There is a pretty sweet youtube video that upper deck did to show the process of cutting and folding them. Issue is sellers unfolding to scan and then folding again to ship - some painted cards chipped that way.

love the perspective on that spidey!

I can see how the paint would chip if folded too many times. I used some acrylic on my panel cards though not too thick. Hopefully there won't be much chipping then.

Thanks for the comments!

Hi Jason! I don't hit this area too often, so its the first time I've seen your thread. Really nice stuff!

I love the Tarman in your first thread... a little William Stout influence in there, methinks!

Anyway, I really love your style, look forward to seeing more!

WHY THANKS! I'll post more of my Premier work in the coming days.

Stout's production work on the ROTLD is amazing. It's my favorite horror movie all time and I've been a zombie nut since the mid-80s when my older cousin's would babysit and make me watch it. The Tarman still kinda freaks me out.

Did these ROTLD pieces recently

Awesome!!! ROTLD is one of my favorite films. I got to meet Linnea Quigley a few years ago at Wonderfest and she's a really nice person. I've met William Stout on numerous occasions and bought several original pieces from him. Really nice guy, easily my favorite artist and a huge influence on me growing up.

If I'm ever looking for a commission piece, is your website the best way to go or just message you here?

Love those two ROTLD pieces!
