Otis Frampton

So I bought my first ever commissioned sketch card. People collect all types of cards. Some get a variety of different characters, and others settle on a specific topic. I chose me and the duck. I figured it would be kind of cool to get interpretations by some of my favorite artists.
Otis Frampton was the first one I chose. He is one of two of the biggest influences in my sketch card work. The way he envisions characters on a small canvas is unmatched and so unique. It's no wonder that he is so darned popular in the sketch card biz.
It is also worth noting that he knows when to quit. He's recently removed himself from the sketch card biz to pursue other areas of his art, (Including his book Oddly Normal)
In true passion fashion, he got to dabble in some of his favorite characters (his last crusade being with Marvel Masterpieces 2) and accomplished that, and is moving on. Very admireable and impressive.
Either way here is Otis Frampton's wonderful interpretation of Locoduck Studios.

You can see more of Otis's awesome work on his blog. Hos link is at the top of my food chain on the right. Thanks again Otis, for the card and the inspiration.
If anyone else wants to try their hand, I'll post it here. You can email me the image, and ultimately I would love to display the original in my studio.
