Crazy awesome.

So when you draw the original of these, they truly are card sized?

Also I love the idea that you are able to fit some of them together for a larger picture, but individually they still frame a stand alone shot.

Great work and thank you.

bradu - 

Thanks Jacob...think the above post answered most of your questions...but also Topps had posted on twitter that they were thinking about using original artwork in a future set awhile back, and asked who people would like to see do it. I contacted them and told them I was interested, but I think a lot of kind folks also said they'd appreciate seeing my work in a Topps set and soon they contacted me about it.


That's awesome man.

correct, the originals are actually what goes into the packs. I was just at the local card shop I've been going to since I was about 12, and I took in a couple of the sketch cards I got to keep to show the owner. I had told him several months ago that I was going to work on a future Topps set, but I don't think he beleived me.

Anyway, as he's looking at the Couture one, he asks "now how big are the originals?" And I said "that is the original that you're holding". It was funny watching the expression on his face change and watching him inspect the card closer to realize that was the actual drawing.

 

So Fedex just dropped off my boxes, super excited to rip into em!

3 of them have surfaced so far, though I imagine more have been pulled...Bart Paleschwezsxqi posted on twitter that he pulled this pencil Royce:

Then a Roy Nelson and BJ Penn popped up on ebay:

and just now as I'm typing this I was just told the Glover Teixeira also surfaced:

hadn't even seen that...it doesn't show up under completed listings, but neither does the  BJ. Does it take a day or so for them to show up or something?

Thanks! The puzzle cards (that go together) were not my favorite, personally. But you're not alone, a lot of collectors seem to like those best.

ec by the time you posted that, it was showing up for me, too. But before that, it was not. I think there must be a delay of a few hours after an auction is completed, before it shows up under completed auctions doing a search.

 

Caseharts, I've used e-bay a bit. Mostly testing things out. Wouldn't exactly recommend it, but we'll see if that changes with this Topps stuff. I just posted a few things today. I've never heard of redbubble, but will check it out! Thanks.

like I said, I give up on the sizes. That GSP is one of my artist returns, it's up on ebay right now. These are the ones that have surfaces in the last couple of days.
