Thanks for all the feedback. I'm resurrecting this thread and see how you guys feel these days. There are things in the works and there might be a kickstarter happening. How do you feel about that? I just created a lineup of my best concepts I've created over the years. I hope to get a lot of the work completed over the summer.
Here are some newer questions.
How would you like to see 3 sets? 100 cards altogether. Wax packs and boxes?
A new and improved Series 1 and 2 of Parody Kids at a more affordable cost as a stretch goal?
An All-New 40 card Series 3?
Bonus Cards? Special Sketch Cards? And many more extra stuff...Anything else you'd like to see?
Let me know what you guys think?
Idea for the pledge: Create your own Parody Kid, Give a name to a Parody Kid, Bonus card draw by John POUND or Tom BUNK, or Dave GROSS etc..., Rough art, Final art.
What would you rather see? An All-CPK parody thing like the early OS with simple backgrounds? Or a combination of OS nostalgia on some cards and others with my ANuS love. Maybe almost split down the middle? What would you be excited to see? Are you guys tired of the attempts in trying to match Pound's early style? Are they hit and miss? I think I can rock it, but I usually just do what seems to make sense for each character. They need to be unique in there own way to me, but I can figure out a way to bring it all together.
It 's really difficult to say something whithout seeing the concept.
When I look at Fryin' Brian. There is no need for a background. The card is really good as it was drawn.
But when I look Mad Mike I feel that the card is empty.
If you need an outside viewpoint, it will be my pleasure to give one for each of your concept.
Edit: Oh! yes. You can count on me for pledge the kickstarter.
With die cuts, wax packs and old school boxes I'd be all over this. Maybe some gum (sealed of course) I'm cool with whatever style you decide to choose but I'm a huge fan of the old school Pound art with simple or detailed backgrounds depending on the character and subject. You should also make a special limited run that might have a slightly different wax pack design and some cards that are not in the regular set. Anyway, that's just some stuff that would excite me but I'm looking forward to what you come up with.
