Hi All! I'm one of the new artist on MLB Wacky Packages. I worked on sketch cards and am awaiting word as to when I can post some. I've been a WP fan since the mid seventies where I would pick them up at our local corner grocery store in Brooklyn. I was very excited to be asked to work on the set and hope to do so again as I'd love to take a crack at some of the classics!

I have also worked on Star Wars, Mars Attacks and Garbage Pail Kids for Topps. More recently I did 8 paintings for Upper Deck's Firefly The Verse set. My work can be seen at the link below.

Also, took a break from preparing for my show next week and relaxed a bit sketching these!

Hi All! Just wanted to share my Artist Returns from WP 50th. Also wanted to show one of a few pieces I submitted to Topps to try to land some base card work.

Especially like "Twin Freaks."  This was the deciding factor in whether or not I purchased this set.  The pendulum swung in favor.

beautifully done, Robert!  I love how it came out!

It was my concept, and not sure how many will be in the set, but I think I have
another idea there, too, that is being painted by one of the greatest  ;D

The gag is good and art, too. It should be OL', not 'OL, though...a minor oops. [The missing letter is at the end of the word, not the beginning]  :)

Thanks! And actually, I just uploaded the correct version. That was something that was caught before finishing the art and the topps site has the correct image!
