I have four cards up on eBay this week:

The Eighth Doctor:


Indiana Jones:






I'm still working hard on the Clone Wars set for Topps and have just been asked to draw some more cards for Strictly Ink, so it looks like I'll be busy until Christmas, what with commissions pending! :)

Topps Star Wars Clone Wars season 1

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! :)

Back to work

Now that Rosie is happily settled back at school, I'm throwing myself back onto work with a vengence. I've been doing more work for eBay, extending my range from just Doctor Who to include other genres too. I've also been completing commissions and trying to clear the desk a bit, to make room for the latest cards to complete for Topps.
I'm down to do 100 + 6 returns for the Star Wars : Clone Wars set. I'm toying with the idea of a more loose style on these, maybe. More on that if it works out...
The above cards are on eBay from this week:
