Bubblegum and wax packets

On July the 1st the Art Hustle vintage style bubblegum card packs go on sale.

I was honoured to be asked to be a part of series one of this collectors card set made up of artists from around the world.

The Art Hustle is a boutique set of artist and art-based trading cards exhibiting an international group of 75 artists working in street art, toy art, kaiju, sketch, illustration, painting, aerosol art, poster art, tattoo art, digital art, collage, sculpture, photography and more. Inspired by trading cards produced from the 1960’s through the 80’s, the set offers up some vintage-inspired flavour including chipboard card stock and the much-loved wax paper wrapper. Cards also come with interesting facts on the backs that you don’t want to miss.

I have done a bunch of ink drawings on the cards to be randomly inserted in the packs. All the artists in the series have also done original works for insertion so you could get a piece of original art with your bubblegum stick.

Here are some of mine.

I hope it makes the cards smell the way they did when I was a kid.. (It was Hammer Horror cards for me back then..)
