Default My artwork and 1/1 Canvas Cards for 2015 Topps Museum Canvas Collection

I have gotten a couple of inquires about my cards in the set. I did a total of 50 cards. 16 of them were chosen for reprints, and all 50 were inserted as 1/1 original canvas art. I was making a mad rush to Fedex so I wasn't able to scan the last 5 cards I did. Topps also gave me as part of my reimbursement six blank canvas cards. Those cards are still blank.

So what you're saying is that someone could (in theory) pay you a commission to do a portrait of a player on one of those six blanks?

And those cards look outstanding. I've seen a few from Museum 2015 that look, well, not good.

I mean, those are "okay", but nothing like the pure beauty that is this gem:

Holy crap, I thought Brad's were awesome (and they are) but yours are even better. We have some very talented artists on BO. I wish I had even a fraction of your and Brad's talent.

These are fantastic, Dan. I also like that your backgrounds have unity...mine are all over the place because I'm always experimenting with it. But it would be nice to have something consistent and recognizable like that. The figures aren't too bad, either. lol

Wow

Thank you guys so much for the kind words. Brad your stuff is top-notch, proud to have my work in the same as yours!

Free2131-the card you posted, I am not familiar with this artist. I haven't seen any of their cards before.

Holy Jesus! I mean seriously...what the?! That Ozzie Smith looks like a picture! In fact the first 14 all look nearly photorealistic. Just incredible. Thanks for sharing.

Most hide out in the non-sports sections, tip of the iceberg! Some very talented guys on here.

Absolutely unreal! Outta curiosity, what would you charge for a custom on one of those blanks?

I am an artist looking to gain exposure, just wondering how you became an artist for Topps? Or any cother company for that matter. Any chance you could PM me?

Thanks in advance!

Default My artwork and 1/1 Canvas Cards for 2015 Topps Museum Canvas Collection

You are doing these paintings on actual cards? Or are they bigger and shrunk down digitally? If a mini painting WOW... your art is sweet

This is a thread from 3 years ago, guys. It was bumped by a newbie, and since then, photobucket has held pictures hostage. Aren't you guys paying attention?

Re: PB extortion: right click on image and click view in website. It should go to the page with the picture.
