I am happy to announce that since receiving my first company job as a sketch card artist for Cult-Stuff Cards, I have been accepted to work on two new sets for a Las Vegas based company named Viceroy Cards.
Much like Cult-Stuff, Viceroy concentrate on unlicensed material (I.e. material which holds no copyright and is therefore public domain), creating high quality cards with unique artist driven artwork. Their previous set ‘Carnival’, for example, had artists creating characters based on the travelling carnival, such as strong men and ring leaders (I am seriously jealous that I couldn’t be part of this set – would have had a lot of fun with it, I’m sure).
I have been commissioned to work on their two newest sets named ‘Insectae’ and ‘The Deep’. I am pretty excited about this as I get to play around with realism and, of course, draw a lot of ugly buglies and underwater creatures.
My dad actually seems more excited about this set than anything else I’ve worked on! If anything because me and him have always shared a passion for tropical fish. He has an amazing fish tank of his own, full of ridiculously colourful fish; whereas I have three little puffer fish in my own smaller tank. I’m hoping I will get to reference some of these little guys in my sketches.
Keep posted by following this blog for more information on the set as I hear more from Viceroy. To learn more about this company, feel free to visit their site Viceroy Cards or their Facebook group here. You can also follow them on Twitter.
