TOPPS Indiana Jones Heritage sketch cards

Since the final product is scheduled to hit the stores soon, I finally got the permission to show these sketch cards I worked on for the upcoming Indiana Jones Heritage trading card set for TOPPS. They are one of a kind original sketches that will be inserted in every box of cards (one per box), along with autographed cards by Harisson Ford, Steven Spielberg, George Lucas and others who worked on the films. Six of this cards will be returned to me later on which I am considering to put up for sale, so keep an eye on my blog if you are interested.

Wat een fantastische opdracht en wat een voortreffelijk werk, Patrick! De gelijkenissen zijn zo treffend en toch zo lekker gestileerd, precies zoals ik het lekker vind. Ironisch genoeg vind ik Indiana zelf de minst gelijkende, maar ik weet hoe onmogelijk die man op papier te krijgen is.

Favorieten: Toht (beide), Marion met aapje, Sallah en natuurlijk Mola Ram.

Erg, erg goed gedaan, vrind.

A friend saw your Indy art and passed around your blog link at work.

Really great stuff. I particularly like the set of cards concentrating on everyone's mug. I'd love to be young again and open a pack of cards and get the rare "face melter" card. :) Fantastic characterization.

Those are some of the best interpretations of Indy I have ever seen. Thanks for sharing this with us!

Found your blog via the drawingboard.org - just wanted to say i REALLY dig all your stuff here. You got a great sense of spontaneity in your sketches that stays with the art all the way through the digital steps... which is GREAT!! Style is cool... keep up the good stuff man!!

Mukpuddy said...

Jordan said...

I'd really like to see these used for an Indy cartoon

Clio said...

These are the best Indy sketch cards I've seen yet!!

David Cousens said...

These are excellent! I've only just discovered your blog thanks to drawn.ca, and I'm really glad I have! If they released these cards as a set by themselves I'd pick them up straight away! Nice work on the rest of your blog too!

Gabriele Antonini said...

Jolle said...

ms. froggie said...

fantastic work, patrick! i LOVE the willie scotts, marions and the sallah! i know a lucky 12 year old who's going to get the first box when it hits the stores! (maybe he'll share with his 30+ old dad.)

:)

mike said...

Those are wicked cool!

Monkeyfeather said...

Good sketches, but I think they are borderline racist offensive. Especially the ones with turbans. Look into the Sikhs. Please be aware of this when drawing in the future. Thanks.

Stephen said...

Man, these are fantastic. I'd totally buy 'em!
But... no Marcus Brody? I'm surprised!

GOGOPEDRO said...

stellar work.....

like seeing the alternate versions of the chilled monkey brains.

Hoping to see some more...maybe a nice marcus brody, ark of the covenant, young indy, or possibly a little belloq

great stuff.

Alex "Toon" Deligiannis said...

Wow, these are great! I REALLY love the stuff down below, too (the girls and the Indy banners in particular). Excellent!

Francis Vallejo said...

cdt said...

Very cool!

I haven't bought Topps in years, but I'm definitely buying these.

schpatz said...

Flippin' Awesome.

Nice work, man.

nicole falk said...

These are fantastic!!! LOOOVE your style..They all looked like they are watercolored though - i worked on the LOTR M2 set i tried watercoloring and it totally warped the card - how did you keep them so nice?

tomm said...

just saw this on drawn! rock on patrick! nice one!

Doug said...

Those are so awesome. Every expression is spot on. You should try and get permission to do an IJ comic or something. Very spectacular work!!

Chris Battle said...

AWESOME!! It's the Indiana Jones cartoon I always wanted but never got :)

Shawn Escott said...

Very nicely done! You captured all the characters wonderfully!

Bobby Pontillas said...

Great work Patrick, I love your faces.!

Gregg said...

Awesome. Remember growing up wanting to be an archaeologist until I found out their tool of choice was a dust brush rather than a whip and revolver. As said above you captured the essence of many of the coolest scenes in the films. Just awesome.

Leighton Johns said...

Superb! Thought your work for theraider.net was outstanding, nice to see you getting a chance to tackle the rest of the Indy characters. Now if only we could get to see them animated...

Adele K Thomas said...

awesome! THese are sooooo tasty i could eat them! I cant wait for Indy 4! Seeing as you seem to love it, check out this awesome Indy illustration at http://shaneprigmore.blogspot.com/

Kim Roberts said...

These are so well done - you captured the characters excellently in your style, wahoo!

I'm a new fan :)

Erm, hope you don't mind me using the Lao Che one as a profile picture. :S

Pat McMicheal said...

Hi Patrick, Do they make copies of these or do they pack the actual original drawing in the deck?
How can a good artist get in on some of this action?
Thanks, Patrick, also

Hiro Kawahara said...

Greetings, Patrick.

Awesome work, congratulations.

I wrote a post in my blog (it's a illustration blog) about your Indiana Jones cards, using a picture in your blog.

That's the link:

I hope there's no problem to post the picture in my blog.

Thank you.

awesome designs. this has TV series potential.

Dapper Dan said...

Excellent card set man, love them all!

Adrian said...

Jaren lang, heb ik je gepredikt naar de U.S. te gaan om daar te gaan werken.
Pat, dat hoeft niet, want jij hebt Amerika totaal naar jezelf toegetrokken.
Beter zelfs! Zoals Han-Solo ooit gezegd heeft: " Your one in a million, kid !"

Buigend op de grond, met neus in het stof,

Adrian.
