Years ago, someone contacted me through e-mail and asked me to draw something on a couple of index cards for them. I was so flattered, I said sure. He sent me a couple of index cards with a Self Addressed Stamped Envelope and a letter asking what he wanted drawn. I still remember what I drew... Darth Vader and Boba Fett from Star Wars.
Well, who ever that was, he posted somewhere online that I drew the cards and also posted the address to my studio. I don't know where it's posted online, but I'm sure of it. From then on, I would get these letters asking for sketches, along with a couple of index cards, and a self addressed stamped envelope. I've done numerous of these since.
One time, a father sent me a couple of photos of kids. The kids were posing on the right side of the photo in a super hero Halloween costume and I would drew characters on the left side. Sorta like Life meets Art. Very creative of the father.
Anyways, I've never made copies or took pictures of the sketch I drew. Never thought about posting them until now. So from here on out, every time I do another freebie Sketch Card, I'll post them here. I'm calling the entries, "Index Cards".
Here's one for someone in the Netherlands. He sent me a Dutch Good Luck Charm which I thought was kinda nice (see bottom left of picture). As usual, a self addressed stamped envelope and a letter. The letter asked if I can personalize it to his son, which I did for the Batman sketch.
Sketched it out in pencil, then finished it up with whatever pens I have around at the time... red ball point pen, tech pen, black & silver sharpie, blue & yellow highlighters, and a orange marker.
