Celebrity Jersey Cards is a weekly series in which I create virtual trading cards for celebrities wearing sports jerseys. With Halloween tomorrow, I present a special Halloween edition of Celebrity Jersey Cards.
I have been a big fan of artist Sara Richard for many years. Sara's resume is impressive, having done many covers, variants, trading cards and much more. She also illustrated Kitty & Dino and The Ghost, The Owl. I am the proud owner of a few of her pieces, including her take on "The Johngy" character.
A couple months ago, I saw a piece Sara created featuring WWE wrestler Becky Lynch. It was spectacular. I always thought wrestling lends itself well to artists, because of the colors and larger-than-life characters. I like the contrast of Sara's simple, flowing technique with the harsh edges of wrestlers.
Although smallish, Sara has the intangibles to be a great wrestler, but I don't see her leaving art behind. She is just too good.
Go to SaraRichard.com and follow her at @SaraRichard on twitter. Check out her work on her site and social media. She really is awesome.
