Yesterday I received an email from Mike James, an artist who I highlighted back in the fall of 2010 which included awarding a Mike James sketch card to the contest winner. It turns out that Mike is the artist of the Music, Music, Music art cards, a 90-card checklist where each card is a 1/1 and encased. They will be inserted one per case with 90 total cases being printed.
The art cards are broken down in to 5 subsets: Country Paradise, Jazz Immortals, Lost Souls, Rock and Roll Heaven and Spirit of the Blues. Some of the musicians included: Gene Autry, Johnny Cash, Cab Calloway, Duke Ellington, Barry White, Marvin Gaye, Bob Marley, Elvis Presley, Jerry Garcia, Freddy Mercury, John Lennon, Kurt Cobain, Michael Jackson, Tupac and Muddy Waters. You will notice that the entire checklist is made up of musicians who have passed away including Whitney Houston and Adam (MCA) Yauch. I would love to get a hold of the Kurt Cobain or Bab Marley art cards but I would expect the cards to sell well above my price range.
For the complete checklist and a look at some additional art cards please take a look at Famous Fabrics Art Card Checklist page.
