This one I quite like...

Well, The Great eBay Experiment was officially over right up until the moment I stumbled across a site where some talentless asshole was selling prints of his shitty art for six hundred dollars a piece.

I decided to have another go. This time, however, rather than sell on eBay, I decided to set up an Etsy store, simply because it only costs twenty cents to list something for four months.

Anyway, I decided to operate again under the 'sex sells' theory, but decided that if I was going to draw something purely designed to sell, I was at least going to think of something fun and interesting to draw instead of another 'hur hur, you can see her boobs and butt' drawing.

Then, a couple of days ago, Sunny and I were leaving the grocery store and I spotted a deck of cards next to the register and I had an idea. Here it is in all its glory:

Unfortunately it's a big piece so it wouldn't fit in my scanner, so I had to take a picture of it... and I can honestly say it looks a hundred times better in person than it does on the screen.

Don't get me wrong, I look at it and see a hundred things I could have done better, but usually I finish a drawing and like it less and less every time I look at it until I get to the point where I honestly hate it. This time, I only mildly dislike it.

Maybe I can sell it to a horny poker player.

I was wondering what your version of the Queen of Hearts would look like.
I love it, Babe.
