Not one day since my last card set announcement and I already have another for you! Along a similar theme to yesterday’s post, I have been lucky enough to be asked to work on Unstoppable Cards’ upcoming 2014 set Dead Divas.
At first I wasn’t sure what the subject material was going to be. I thought it might be literal in the sense of actual deceased starlets, but no, that would be a little insensitive surely? Then I thought maybe something more zombie like? Perhaps a zombie pinups series? Well, it turns out the second guess was a little closer. It seems the artists involved will be working alongside Bianca Thompson, a pretty big name in the sketch card community, to recreate versions of her own characters, the Dead Divas.
Think Monster High meets Living Dead Dolls, but all grown up. These ladies each have their own unique personalities and styles which I cannot wait to work on. My personal favourite is, obviously, ‘Lady of the Death’ due to her being a Day of The Dead style skull. And we all know how much I love those. Luckily for me the deadline is early 2014 allowing me plenty of time to work on these gorgeous characters.
Unstoppable is also the first company I have worked with who offer licensed material! Which is a pretty big step for me, so I am even more excited to work with them on this series. As well as Dead Divas they will next year be offering Blakes 7, The Wicker Man and The Man Who Fell To Earth.
Keep posted by following this blog for more information on the set as I hear more from Unstoppable Cards. To learn more about this company, feel free to visit their site Unstoppable Cards or their Facebook group here.
