Collect 'Em Trade 'Em!
This image was created for a trading card which I think was part of a Wizard Magazine promotion (wow, the old brain cells are sluffing off like dried rose petals). I was excited that I was going to get a big box of them to hand around because I'm simple, and fascinated by small shiny things. Alas, my comp cards vanished in the ether between the publisher and myself and I ended up with two of the cards.
The image was drawn in pen and ink and color applied in markers to a xerox copy of the line art. I hate coloring with markers but I liked how it turned out, maybe because there's enough black in the drawing to pull it together and I reduced the palette down to a few colors. The subject references Sam & Max Hit the Road which was released on disk in 1994.
