Here is my first batch of cards approved by Topps. I'm a third of the way through doing them now. I've worked out I need to do 7 cards a day to make the deadline. I'm managing that so far.
I'm having fun doing these, enjoying a more loose, cartoony style. Unfortunately I can never do the quick five minute sketch which would justify the amount we get paid for these cards. :) The quickest I can draw a card, and be happy with it, is 25 minutes. I don't like doing scribbles, or even saving my best work for the 6 back I'm entitled to. I know of some artists who do that, but I reckon people are paying out for boxes of these cards, I don't want them to be disappointed with what they 'pull'. Also I see each card as a representation of me and my work. So they need to be good! :)
