Moving On…

This is probably finally, mercifully the last call for this blog.  Maybe an out-of-habit shill here & there whenever I launch new ventures or whatever, but yeah, this is intended to be the last meaningful post from me here.  Here is the key word.  While I’m not going to be posting on this blog anymore, […]

Not Much Blogging, But Still Arting

I’m probably never blogging in any meaningful way on WordPress ever again, but that doesn’t mean I haven’t still been collecting cards and doing stuff.  In fact, dedicating approximately zero seconds to this blog over the past several months has freed up enough time that even my uncannily lazy & hopelessly unfocused ass has been […]

Mediocre Twitter Poetry Theatre

I’ve done quite a few of these silly things in recent days.  Figured I might as well collect them here on the ol’ blog again.  I know there have been a few people who seemed to enjoy it when I’ve dropped rhymes on here in the past anyway.  It’s all pretty random, just what happened […]

From Conception to Completion

Over the past week or so, I’ve been plugging away at this sketch of New Zealand-based future wrestling legend Evie.  A short while ago I finally, mercifully finished.  Not that I can actually explain how I shade with so much detail (pretty much completely self-taught), but I grabbed progress pics after each session.  Just thought […]

Gone, but not for Long

Looks like I hit my wall even faster than last year, unless the flurry of posts to close out 2014 count.  But I’ve no plans to disappear until the end of the year again.  Whenever I get around to scanning stuffs again, I’ll have fresh card posts to share.  In the meantime, I’ll see about getting […]

One of those Nights…

It’s a cold, lonely night And I’m stuck in the past again Lost in memories Of what I thought could have been Can’t stop replaying All the things I should have said to you Everything I felt back then You know it all still holds true ♫ It never was I know it never will […]

My only eBay Purchase of 2015 so Far

That’s right, most of my money has gone to COMC this year, with a little to loose retail packs of 2015 Topps and a couple repack boxes.  I’ve only bought one thing on eBay in 2015, and it wasn’t even a card.  It was this: I picked up this great addition to my Raven art […]

30 Day Anime Challenge: Overview

Paul got me doing this fun thing on the twitters, even though I haven’t watched much anime in awhile.  So I thought I’d take it to the blog to elaborate on my choices, and just reminisce.  Here’s how it goes. I won’t do these posts every day, and I’ll try to sneak a few card, […]

Ending January on an Artistic Note

There were three more sketch cards in January’s shipment from COMC, so let’s end the month with a quick post showing ‘em off! The kinda iffy, if you’re feeling exceptionally diplomatic about it, Hit-Girl only cost $3, which more-or-less made up for the rad Lady Demon and She-Hulk pushing the edge of my spending comfort zone.  I […]

The Diamond King Last Chance Contest Pimpage!

There’s a new blog in town… that actually seems to have started before even my first six long since deleted posts from March/April 2008.  But after a 27 or so month hiatus, The Diamond King is officially with us again, and is holding a contest to promote this most auspicious occasion.  There are seven big […]

It’s a Sketch Card Kinda Day

Huh?  What’s this? A post with recentish sketch cards completely ready to go?  Did the blog fairy type this up when I wasn’t paying attention?  No, I vaguely remember doing this myself for a rainy day.  So seeing as it rained steadily all day today, let’s post it!  All cards for sale or trade. Me […]

The Trading Post: CamClow of Cardboard Heaven

‘Ello ‘ello, old chums.  Back with another trade post.  This one is from CamClow of Cardboard Heaven.  Only three cards in this, but they are all great ones. As far as plain jerseys go, nothing beats a Donruss jumbo swatch, I tell ya.  It’s hard to explain, but they just do it better.  Maybe this […]

The Trading Post: Marie of A Cardboard Problem

Hey all.  So I guess I’ll start with the most recent trade to arrive and work my way back.  This package arrived sometime between Tuesday and Thursday this past week from Marie of A Cardboard Problem. A nice mix of specific Cubbies I collect.  The only one here I might have already is the ’10 […]

Million Card Giveaway Haul

Forgot about this until I saw them amongst some undownloaded scannage still sitting in my inbox.  Here’s what I ended up with: Pretty nice haul considering how little I had to work with.  No complaints about condition either.  Only the ’60 and ’72 had any damage, but except for a certain 1965 card from a […]

Odds, Ends, Updates and Highlights

Hey.  Wassup?  Got some random stuff to hit on, so here goes. First, there is one slot left in The Daily Dimwit‘s Ovation Case Group Break!  One team of your choice and a second to be randomed off, for $30.  Go for it! ~~~~ Next, I’ve gotten into trade talks with all of the following […]

The League

Finished the rest of my Justice League sketch cards.  Timely too, being as I am down to $29.00 for the rest of the month (even a cheap computer isn’t cheap).  If anybody has ever considered buying any pre-made cards or commissioning a piece from me, this would be swell time to do it!  Anyway, have […]

Flea Market Finds #13: Tenth & Eleventh Binder Page

Almost done! We’ll get two of the last three binder pages done today, and finish it off just before I head out on Saturday.  Also, I blew the days in a row streak again, due to being up pretty close to 24 hours into yesterday afternoon (thanks in part to coloring sketch cards), and sleeping […]
