SWG5 Return Card: Bossk

Click the image for bigger Bossk action:

This is a Star Wars Galaxy 5 Return Card I recently finished up (thanks, Mark!) - drawn with brush pen, colored with Prismacolor markers. I only have two SWG5 Return Cards left. That's right, folks - only TWO left. Contact me at grantgoboom@gmail.com if you're interested in buying one. They're $200 each.

For those of you that don't know what a "Return Card" is and are wondering why a 2.5"x3.5" trading card would cost $200 -- basically when we (the artists) do sketch cards for a given set, we are given a small number of sketch cards to sell on our own (usually between 2 and 10). These are called "Return Cards," and they're essentially how we get paid for the work we did on the set. The Return Cards are sought after by collectors, and they're pretty rare. You get to own a unique hand-drawn piece of an officially-licensed card set, and you get to buy it direct from the artist. So it's a cool system of supporting your favorite illustrators and having a one-of-a-kind card that no other collector has.

Oh, and while we're on the topic of Bossk . . . did you see who's coming to Celebration 5?
