I'm going to try and get back to my roots a bit

Over a decade ago I used to travel the comic book convention circuit and get sketches from my favorite artists of some of my favorite characters.  Back then I had an insane collection of Gambit artwork.

As I have grown older and more wiser, I realize that a playing card tossing Cajun mutant didn't really relate to me anymore. 

I still love the Marvel and DC Comics movies, but I have become a HUGE fan of The Flash and Arrow TV series.  One of my favorite characters from Arrow is the villain known as Deadshot.

When I saw this sketch card from DC Comics Epic Battles, I knew I had to have it.  Matthew Sutton knocked this out of the park.

I'm currently bidding on a few autographs from Arrow Season 1 Trading set.  I don't plan to build the master set, but would like to get autos of some of my favorite actors/actresses from that show.

  1. Sketch cards are a lot of fun, but there are so many of them out there that it is impossible to get all the ones you want. I have a small list of favorite characters that I try to focus on, and also keep a list of artists whose work I want an example from in my collection. That way I can get a variety of different artists' work featuring a core group of favorite characters. That keeps the sketch collection (somewhat) manageable.
