Wow!  Scot thanks so much for posting.   The artists have really brought it this time around.  It's a true tribute to Wacky Packs on their golden anniversary!

Make sure to check out the "black and white" sketches by Floydman Sumner  in detail. These are really nice tributes to some classic Wacky characters, IMO.

Scot, took a closer look and, as you said, they are just incredible!  As much as his classic characters rock, the one that really caught my eye was his Sneez-It!  It's a great tribute to the wonderful and Wacky work of Tom Bunk.

I also like the fact I am seeing some of the characters from the WP Halloween Postcard sets popping up in some of these sketches for the 50th Anniversary.

Those duals are fantastic!  Also a great mix of original series, ANS, postcard and PoD characters in the black and whites!

Can one of the artists share what "guidelines" you were given for these sketches. Which series you could you  pull from. Etc. ?

Just trying to understand what we can expect. I would love to see a Flunkies Sketch from Old School; but don't know if that is even possible.

It's pretty much the usual: no booze, no cigs, no smut. Most everything else goes, including material from the postcard and old school series.

Patrick,

These are all fantastic! Now that Jason Brewer is doing sketch cards, it would be hilarious to see some dual artist sketch cards with him and Jason Brower!

my bad, it's John Brewer.
was thinking of Jason Brower when I typed that

that would make for a confusing dual sketch!

Since I haven't posted anything on my facebook pages yet I figured I'd jump in and post a few here.






By the way, I only did one Caged. I regrouped and rescanned a bunch and posted it twice here in two different groupings.

I must say I'm having trouble finding that one......but I'm surprised that Topps allowed "Ale" with its alcoholic theme.

Marc, you may be looking at Simone's work.  I was commenting on Jason Brower's which are right above my posting!  You're correct about Ale, that title shouldn't be in a Wacky general release!

Hey, a Jean Nutty sketch!    That's not something you see every day.

Marc, good question.  Someone should start keeping track.  Perhaps it can be the start of the WP 50th master list.

Great work!  I especially love the duals!

And from all these sketches we've been fortunate enough to view, this 50th anniversary
set must be loaded!  Cool beans!

I think all the artists involved have "hit it out of the park." I'm not much into the new stuff any more but, I may have to reconsider for the set.

Scot, cool, thanks again for posting.  Nice cards and the colors keep rolling in!  Also what are we up to, about 27 artists!  That's gonna make getting a sketch from each artist really tough.
