Below are the prelim sketches that I did for the Hogsnot logo from my last post. I think that I pretty much nailed it with the very first sketch that I did and so did the client happily. Of course, there were some changes, but the hog remained as I first saw him. That's a good piggie.
Back in February, the Lord Of The Rings sketch cards that I did hit the shelves and soon after the buyers began putting them up on ebay. So, I've been enjoying tracking my cards and seeing just how many bids and how much they are going for, but what I have really been getting a kick out of is reading what the sellers have to say about my artwork. This was my favorite from a seller in Australia:
"You are bidding on a one of a kind [1/1] original Lord of the Rings: Masterpieces II sketch card created by famous artist Bruce Gerlach. This card features an amazing image of Gandalf, one of the main characters from the movies. Card is in MINT condition and has been stored in a protective soft card sleeve, inside a rigid hard plastic toploader."
I love Australia.
My wife's personal favorite is of one seller describing one of my cards as a "super sweet sketch." She now calls me Super Sweet. So, thanks to that guy.
