Sketch Cards : Category Archives

Out of My System

Sketch cards are like an art palette cleanser. They’re the ginger of comic book art. At first I enjoyed them because of the novelty factor of having a small drawing that you could hand off to people easily. More and more, I’m enjoying the ability to draw something quickly that’s rattling around in my mind that I can’t put on the schedule or don’t want to necessarily lock up in a sketch book.

When I saw Guardians of the Galaxy with my son, I couldn’t wait to go home and draw them. The only problem was that I already had an assignment that couldn’t be put on hold while I stretched my legs on something just for the fun of it. Enter: sketch cards. With these little guys, I’m not overly concerned with composing a scene or creating cover quality work. Sometimes it’s nice to be able to draw something quickly and hope that maybe someone else will like it as well.
