    Default Cards from the Crypt: Sketch Cards and Art by Ryan ⓡ

    Sketch cards are hand-crafted miniature original art pieces that come in a variety of sizes, including the standard trading card size (2.5"x3.5"), a "pano" (panel) size comprising two standard cards (3.5"x5"), a triptych (3.5"x7.5") and a "twice-up" size (5"x7" or four cards stacked 2x2). Each one is an original 1/1 piece and not intended for reproduction.

    The cards lend themselves well to creating in a series, are not as time-consuming as larger pieces, and are quite affordable to buy, trade and collect--and they're easy to ship. Plus, they don't take up a lot of space in a collection and display very well using toploaders, card frames, easels and other trading card supplies. In short, they are a lot of fun for both creators and collectors. Aside from "official" sketch cards mixed at random into retail packs for lucky collectors (and dealers) to find when purchasing card releases at stores, many artists create their own personalized card blanks to commission, create tribute fan art and parodies, or craft their own original characters and series. In this thread, I'll be sharing some of my creations--both "official" and personal, starting with my Inktober project, a series of horror tribute cards I think of as the Cards from the Crypt! 🦇💀☠

    "A real limited edition, far from being an expensive autograph stapled to a novel, is a treasure. And like all treasures do, it transforms the responsible owner into a caretaker, and being a caretaker of something as fragile and easily destroyed as ideas and images is not a bad thing but a good one...and so is the re-evaluation of what books are and what they do that necessarily follows." - Stephen King

    Hi, dnemec! Great to hear from you. My King book collecting hit a wall years ago when I pretty much got everything I can (or am willing to) afford, but I still check in from time-to-time. These days, I mostly just buy his new releases. I've made this thread to share some of the card art I've been doing for the last six or seven years, and to motivate myself to keep working. I'm glad you're still enjoying your Poe!

    Default Garbage Pail Kings

    For several years, I took on commissioned sketch card projects for the Topps company, working on licensed properties like Wacky Packages, Star Wars, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles and Stranger Things. But my favorite projects--mostly due to nostalgic reasons as I was the perfect age for the original releases in the mid-80s--were for Garbage Pail Kids. There was always a stipulation in the contract that I had to use characters already established in the series--I couldn't use my own original creations--but I did manage to sneak in some original designs and scenarios surrounding them. The horror-themed sets were my wheelhouse, and they had established a number of King parody characters I jumped at the chance to interpret in my own style. I'll share some of my favorites.

    Okay, that's enough of that. I drew hundreds of these things, but I don't think I'll ever do another one.
