Yeah, I did another round of these things... to be blunt, doing reinterpretations of existing artwork has been about all I've been able to mentally handle during the pandemic. I'm a bit wiped. But, hey, they're fun! So... yeah (four new Star Wars and Star Trek wrappers are posted separately).
Again, most of these are available in the ToughGuyGoods ETSY Store...

A series of drawings of vintage (mostly Topps) trading card and sticker wrappers, a project that kind of snowballed out of control. Gee, I wonder if I'll ever go back to drawing new stuff out of my own head instead of just doing reinterpretations (and these are mostly pretty literal) of existing things in the universe? WHO KNOWS, WE'RE LIVING DURING END TIMES!
(Note: In case we survive, the above sentence refers to the Covid-19 Pandemic, which, as of this posting, is in its fifth month with no signs of stopping. I've been doing a lot of art to keep myself busy, but don't have the mental wherewithal to be overly creative, hence dozens of Lichtensteinian work that I've been posting here. Man, that's way more info than you needed, isn't it, Internet?).
Most of the original artwork for these pieces are available at my Etsy store, ToughGuyGoods. And other stuff, too!
So, in my latest round of "I now only redraw things instead of creating my own stuff," I just completed a series of interpretations (pretty literal ones, for the most part) of vintage trading card and sticker wrappers. Most of them are lumped together in a separate post, but I wanted to put these two on their own, as I loved how they are two different versions of the same thing, same color scheme, same basic design, but for two very different things. These (and most of the other wrapper drawings) are available at my Etsy store, ToughGuyGoods.
