I've decided to stick with the 2"x2" format, because otherwise the board would be huge. For the moment, I'm sticking with the AC/DC card theme. Here are a few more card illustrations. Also worth noting is that the "Mangeboy" companion card (sorry, Jordan) below is a genderless companion, which is to say, he is both male and female. In addition to being rather humorous, this has specific gameplay implications. I decided to use the transgender symbol to indicate that (since I'm using the male and female symbols on the more more standard genders).

Two posts in one day? WTF! I must be on vacation.
This painting is the first in a new set called "Fairy Hell". This piece is called "Little Red Riding Dog", featuring Humpty Dumpty as one of the ring leaders of Hell.
This is an acrylic painting on board. Probably the first 100% acrylic painting I've done in about a decade. My brushes had practically turned to dust.
I mocked up two PettyLand card styles, each with a different influence of mine from the late '80's (and as found throughout the game). One is based on kind of an AC/DC feel, the other modeled a bit after the movie A Clockwork Orange. I'm trying to keep them pretty simple and graphic, as each card is only 2"x2".
What do you think? Which one do you like better?

Some more sketches on the train. Viking sketches were done with colored pencil in a little notebook. Caltrain peeps were done on my tablet pc in Sketchbook Pro.
I'm off work for a few weeks, so hopefully I can do something of more substance and without my drawing surface bouncing around.
