These cards, measuring 2.5 x 3.5 inches each, will be traded or given away at STGCC, at the SCC Comics Exhibition Booth. Sketchcards are a popular off-shoot of trading cards and original art, and have garnered quite a following among comic fans. Sketchcards have overtaken mass-printed trading cards, as they offer another way for fans to acquire original art commissions from their favourite comic artists, that are far more affordable.

SKETCHCARDS: An Overview

Sketchcards collecting is a constantly evolving hobby; New and creative ways of collecting are being discovered and are quickly catching on. Art is also, by nature, collectable, and the sketchcard or art card is, due to its size, perfect for collecting.

Sketchcards giveaways at Gnb Comic Shop, and Sketchcards discussion and Scavenger Hunt at a PanelGrapher Editorial meetup @ ScapeMedia.


The Sketchcards fit anywhere (even in your pocket), and can be displayed like any other collection, in an album or on a stand. Even though sketchcards are small, they have potential and gaining quite a following. And because they are small and affordable, it is possible for anyone to acquire original art from a wide range of artists, and styles.
