March & April are Gonna be Busy

Especially if there’s enough interest to make the opening day group break possible.  I’m pleased to say that the turnout is looking fairly promising so far, so this might actually happen!  If anyone out there could be so kind as to promote it, I would greatly appreciate it.  And anyone interested, let me know in the comments!

That’s not all though.  I saw a retweet from The Wax Wombat on twitter yesterday afternoon about Breygent Marketing looking for some artists to contribute to some upcoming sketch card sets, which is pretty dang awesome of them.  Well, almost immediately after checking out the link, I sent an email, and less than an hour later, was officially signed on to do cards for two of the sets.  Unfortunately, they are the two with the shortest deadlines, but those are the ones that piqued my interest, and I’m confident that I can get them done on time with the required degree of quality.

Still, though I’m excited, I’m also extremely nervous, because though I’m confident I can be timely on this, I’m just not so awesome when it comes to deadlines (most of those who’ve traded with me can attest to my general slowness).  This is essentially the first paying job I’ve ever had (not just artistically speaking here), and I really don’t want to screw it up.  Hopefully I can plan things out some and be fairly prepared, maybe try to tweak a little old school into my style while I wait on the cards and to see if I can get enough interest in group break to go through with it.

After I signed on for the sketch cards, I started thinking that there’s no way I’ll be able to do both the them and the group break, but the more I considered it, I think I can do both without messing up either.  I have the group break pretty well planned out already, so that shouldn’t be a problem.  The sketch cards may just push the group break’s shipping back a little, but basically I just need to be smart with my time, and things should work out.  The only thing left I need to know for the group break is to figure out how to do the team randomizing thing, because it’s gonna be random teams I guess.

Enos!

Why close out the post with this card?  Well, I just wanted to say thank you to the person that offered the ’75 Enos Cabell for my ’05 Grady Sizemore on the topps Million Card Giveaway site.  Awesome. 🙂

Until our next…

    Wow, sounds like a sweet day. Signed up to sketch and traded a card 30 years older than the one you had. Congrats dude!
