Celebrity Jersey Cards #641 Sara Richard x 2

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.
Sara's connection to wrestling didn't stop there though. She cosplayed as 4x WWE women's champ Becky Lynch. While Sara doesn't need my help in creating things, I jumped at the chance to make a couple special WWE Topps cards for her.
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.
