Garbage Pail Kids Flashback sketch cards

Here's some of the sketch cards I drew for the GPK Flashback set coming out soon! Here's a link to the official website. I'll be posting more, so check back daily!
I drew a different character on each card. It's been fun going through all the card sets and drawing my favorite kids. I drew most of them in the middle of a move, so there was a period where I had to draw them wherever I could get internet access, since I was using Barren Aaron's GPK website as reference. Thanks a lot Aaron for having such an in depth site! So I ended up drawing them in restaurants, bars, friend's houses, Wherever there was internet access and a table to draw on.
I drew 250 of them for this set plus 10 return cards. I'll be fully painting those. I haven't drawn my returns yet, so if anyone has a character they'd like, let me know! I'll be selling them!

Thanks guys!
Aaron, Your website helped a lot! I don't own all the old cards, so they were just a click away.

Fantastic work, Brent. Can't wait to add a few to my collection.

Awesome work Brent, I can really tell that you had fun making these.

I would just sell them blank and let the buyer choose what they want on them. Probably could get more $$ that way as the possibilities are endless. Just a thought :)

Know I've told you elsewhere, but fabulous work, Brent. Buying a case and if I don't pull one of yours, I will be heartbroken. Here's hoping for that Drippy Dan one.
