Dammit, my Spider Manny art is sitting all by its lonesome for the weekend at the post office. I needed to sign for it but I was in the bathroom when my mailman knocked at the door and didn't hear him in time. :banghead:

OOOOhhhhhhh that sucks!! I have had that happen to me too!! (not with one-of-a-kind art, but you get the point!).
I thought I'd ask John Pound a couple questions about the 1st series. Here are the two questions I asked:
1 - What was the first GPK final that you finished and submitted to Topps?
2 - What was the first GPK concept that you finished and submitted to Topps?
I guess it would be hard to remember exactly what was going on 22 years ago.
Here are his answers:
First painting: not sure, maybe Adam Bomb. They wanted it painted tighter than theothers, for use on the box and promos. Or maybe another one from thefirst 10 gpks was the first. They were printed in roughly, but notexactly, the order I painted.
The first idea: not sure, as I did a pile of quick black and white sketches and notes.But I did do a color concept rough first of Up Chuck, (it was calledBABY BARFY) to show my proposed style of painting the GPKs. The finalpainting (#3) was close to the concept rough.
i think the Sarah Palin painting rocks! Super, super cool.
it's nice to see dimples back in his work. Old School Pound!!
and it's ALWAYS nice to see cleavage. ;D
-TCT, don't post here , I can't write or read and look at cleavage at the same time
definately a spirited work, he seems like the kind of artist(like myself) who works WAY better when confronted with a challenging project. Like with those ANS 4 sketches we were discussing, I guess it wasn't a challenege to him to make them so he was bored and was just on autopilot when he made them or something. It might have been hard for him in ANS 4 to make a good sketch even if he tried, just because the whole process of making 100s of sketches was like mass production. I don't know. I've been thinking some today about him and what I said, I'm glad these AWESOME painting were posted today. Cool coinsodence.
While I love the idea of a He-Man GPK...I really don't like the way he drew this one. I know Prince Adam had some pretty girlish hair...but the way he drew it here is just 'off'.
I do like seeing him still doing gpk-styled art though.
Luis is the one who sent me a link to the article. I told LD that I didn't like the face of He-Man at all but the rest is fine. LD thought the face was ugly too. The face is too long and doesn't fit in with the hair. The hair seems accurate though. If the face was rounded and cuteness added I think it would be perfect. The way it is now makes it look like he's wearing a wig over a conehead.
garyx5x: anyone non fb places?

Game8: Marketplace and the collective are probably the biggest groups out there.

peds: Any group in particular that is worth trying/trustworthy?

Game8: peds I would say check fb. Plenty of good groups there with tons of stuff for sale.

peds: I'm new to the site and kinda new to collecting GPK in general, would ebay be the best choice for older cards? The newer/new one's would be way easier and cheaper to find on a daily basis but I want to start with the older stuff without breaking the bank.
