I need to start catching up on my sketch cards since I've got a month's worth in the draft folder. That isn't even counting the ones I've done in the past week or so. Here's a particularly terrifying one I sent to a Giants fan.
Adam Smith. Unless I traded with a ghost. And ghosts are usually Angels fans anyway. Adam finished off about a quarter of the album (After Chris Harris softened it up for him) so the duplicate Giants were well worth it.
Of course no good deed goes unpunished so I drew this horrorshow of a sketch card for him as well. Easy concept, Giant fan - Tim Lincecum - Timmy the Giant - Andre the Giant - has a posse. It doesn't hurt that I look at this sticker from Chris Harris damn near every day. Jefferson Burdick's posse is way better than Andre's. I should probably be executed for the execution though. I thought about doing Timmy in an OBEY style, but I didn't know how to do that so I just started drawing him normal-like. Then he started getting weirder and weirder looking. Weird is actually a good look for Tim, so I went with it. He had no cap to begin with but his hair looked really odd so I covered up my mistakes. Eventually I got to the point where I couldn't really make it any better or worse, so I started lettering. That actually turned out ok.
Well, on the front at least. Crappy lettering where I don't leave enough room is my trademark! Unless Shepard Fairey already has that one. Don't sue me, bro! 's just a joke!
I can't remember if Adam has a blog or not. If you're reading and have one let me know so I can linky. If you don't, start one up. I'm sure there's puh-lenty of bloggers who want to trade you their Giants cards. Find us some A's collectors while you're at it too.
