Gross sketch cards

Y'all know Mr. Gross's funny and highly-detailed Wacky paintings. Didja know that his talents are also in display in Garbage Pail Kids land? Check out this recently-ended auction for a GPK sketch card (more like a mini-painting, folks):

And here's a Gross sketch card from 2004 that, in today's Old School sketch parlance, would be an "exotic" or "one-off" I guess.

Holy crap! That is so cool!. Thanks for pointing this out. As a wacky collector you sometimes get a bit biased. By the way she lives only a house down from me but her name isn't Amy  :D

Those are sketches? They look good enough to be fully rendered series cards.

Dave, those are all excellent are you going to try and get them into a new WATN series?  I really enjoy the New Wave Dave and Ghastly Ashley! That "SHOP HERE" arrow is a great touch too.
