2017 Island Dreams Sketch Cards

I was honored to be a contributor to this year’s Island Dreams Charity Card Set. This year’s theme was Mardi Gras, and the proceeds from sales of the card packs go to the following charities: Hope Advocate Children’s Charities, COPS8, New Orleans Musician’s Clinic, Angelman Syndrome Foundation and Paradise Charitable Foundation. Please visit the Island Dreams Web site for information on how to order packs when they become available on November 1st, and get to see sample sketch card artwork from lots of other talented artists who also contributed to this year’s set.

I contributed twenty hand-illustrated original sketch cards to the set. Sketch cards will be randomly inserted into packs for sale, and multiple sketch cards will be in each pack. I hope to hear from anyone who acquires any of my cards to hear what they think and maybe I’ll even get to see some of you at a future comic convention! I had a lot of fun creating cards for this set and I tried several different ideas out along the way. Below is a collage of all of my sketch cards that can be found randomly inserted with this year’s set.

My personal favorite cards are the landscape location ones, especially the 3D-perspective building. My next favorite is the girl on the yellow background. I also enjoyed doing the King Cake Baby cards as a playing card theme + the Jester as a wild card. I like all the other cards too, but those were my favorites and I was really happy that the end result looked like what I wanted them to in my mind’s eye.

Let me know what you think, if you have any favorites, and please let me know if you purchase some packs and pull any of my sketch cards out of there too!

*In all fairness to Buzz, I must admit… this is a holiday time of year that escapes me a little as well… excessive binging in advance of excessive fasting during Lent, when moderation the whole time would make more sense, no?
