some repurposed sketchcards

I'm admittedly not a great artist, but in the interest of "practice makes perfect" I try to draw something every once in a while. Lately I've been getting into the habit of making a sketch card out of any card-like media I come across that would otherwise just be thrown away. I'm talking about stuff like fake credit cards that come in junk mail or expired bus passes. Give me a paper rectangle that fits in my hand and I will scribble on it and hope for the best.

These are 3 instances of where I just drew a random baseball player and after-the-fact decided who I was trying to draw based on who I thought it looked like. Not exactly spitting images of Bryce Harper, Nolan Ryan, and Bert Blyleven, but close enough for me.

These are the backs. Looks like I even signed and dated one of them.

Here's a Mickey Mantle 1/1 for my collection. LOL

The creative muse in my house doesn't just stop with me...

Here's a guest appearance by my wife! Sometimes a simple "HB" on the egg carton is enough to signify them as being hard boiled, but sometimes you need to get creative about it. I love her!

Thanks for visiting! Happy Memorial Day! Thanks to all the brave men and women who gave their lives fighting for the USA.


  1. They're all cool but that egg one takes the cake!

    1. I agree... she even went the extra mile and found a red pen!
