[QUOTE]

Again, the difference is that Topps, Upper Deck, Rittenhouse, Brygent, Press Pass etc all support NSU with advertising dollars. Barrie, has not...period...end of story. Mix that in with the fact that on many releases, the best sketches have been sold on their other website and/or held our for year boxes and you will see why many of us do not feel the need to support Barrie's company.

I didn't want to start any sort of argument, I just wanted to make the point that I shouldn't be made to feel guilty for posting a couple of sketches. I hope I don't upset anyone when I post my box breakdowns for this set, if so I'll apologise now.

Nor should you feel guilty for promoting a non-advertiser. Give me a break. Mad

There will be at least two of us posting on that thread, so you you will have some support Wavey I got my first promo card for the set, PR2, and flyer sheet (not sure what the correct term for this is) which showed four really nice new sketch cards from the set. I'm genuinely looking forward to getting my boxes for this Thumb Up

Totally OT question for Batman:

I just noticed your avatar piccie. Very nice. Part of a classic illustration from The June 23rd 1951 edition of The Saturday Evening Post used to illustrate Ray Bradbury's short story 'The Beast From 20,000 Fathoms'. This was made into one of Ray Harryhausen's most famous early films of the same name. I have an original copy of this magazine in my collection:



So, are you a fan or did you just like the image ?

It's a shame when artists feel they have to take they're work off the site because of some people's comments Shake Head

I did think the same, particularly with the artist supporting the board by advertising in the artists section. Seems to me to be a bit like dual standards, you can't critisise a company who advertises but you can an artist...

Why is that?

It all comes down to selling. If an artist came here and said that he/she was selling sketch cards, either for a set or of their own design, that would not be permitted. However, if an artist came here to show a sample of cards that he/she did as part of an upcoming manufacturing set, that would be permitted.

The same works with manufacturers. There are/were manufacturers who actively support NSU (and thereby Card Talk, by the way) with advertising. They will occasionally come here to promote or give updates of upcoming products.

Then there are manufacturers who do not support NSU (again, who OWNS this Card Talk site), yet feel they can still come here and promote their products. How is it fair to allow them to do so, when they do not support the very company whose message boards they're using? And how is that fair to those manufacturers who actively support NSU?

We've come to take Card Talk for granted. We simply expect that it will be here everytime we come here. But this site isn't free for NSU to operate. For them to pay for this site that we use for free, they must get the money from somewhere. That money comes mostly from advertising. By supporting those who advertise in NSU, we support NSU (and Card Talk). That's why my business and money goes to those who support NSU.

You're using Card Talk right now, so don't you want to also support NSU via their advertisers?


You are ABSOLUTELY correct Kennywood. Thanks for your support.

At the same time, I don't want any artists to get mixed up in the politics of it all or be chastised for working on a particular set. In that respect, I do feel bad for anyone who may have gotten their feelings hurt or feel like they need to go elsewhere.

It's a fine line. As Kennywood says, we pay for forum hosting services and it's only here by magazine sales, subscriptions, and advertising.

Maybe we ought to move on?

I hope so too... He certainly gets alot of free advertising on this site (either directly or through 3rd party CardTalk members) Ahem...


I take it you're referring to little old me?? Wink

Well you see over here on the little island known as the United Kingdom we only one one card manufacturer who releases 2 or 3 sets a year. So we do (or I do at least) get a little excited when we get a release that's not going to cost an arm and a leg to get to our front doors. And as Justm correctly states, we must support our local artists as it's probably not so easy for UK artists to break into the marketplace.

Over here in the UK Doctor Who has a big following and if Barrie, knowing I'm a big fan of all things Dr Who decides to send me a preview of the sketches, why should I not share them with other fans? Should I take them to other forums and not share them here? Or am I blatently showing support for the only card manufacturer we have in this country and support for UK artists?

Yes I am Big Grin


You know what, ethics and good business practice should be words that we associate with manufacterers within this industry. It has nothing to do with there only being one manufacturer in the UK it has much more to do with the way in which that company handles its business. As to releasing only 2-3 sets a year well ok I guess if you count a balck and white version of an already 90%+ black and white set to be a completely different release then fair enough. I am going to stop talking now because I used to be one of Strictly Inks big supporters, but I will say they seem to have a fairly tarnished reputation at the moment and you know what they say about smoke without fire..

It's a shame the artists aren't posting their sketches on here, on Scoundrel there are some awesome sketches by Sarah Lyons, Potratz and Hai, Don Pedicini Jr, Dan Bergren. Rich Molinelli has just posted his sketches and I personally think they're the best one's he's done for any SI set, no half-heads, just awseome sketches Thumb Up

Any reference to artists are not intnded to promote their work in any way or the company to which they have produced work for, but only to congratulate them on their fine sketches. The comment made about Rich Molinelli's half heads is not intended to be negative in any way but was made to emphasize the fact that I believe these sketches are his best ever and the sketch of the Doctor surrounded by 3 Daleks in a cartoon style was absolutely great and I would like to have it in my personal collection.

Hey Jas - Thanks so much! I appreciate the feedback. I can honestly say that I don't plan on doing anymore half heads for any sets. I heard my fans and I changed my approcah for cards sets. I may do some repeats for sets that come up out of nowhere and give me 200 cards to do in 3 weeks time, but no more half heads. Barrie and I talked exstensively about what he and I wanted to show for this set and this was my way of showing him and you guys what I can do. The Half head came around in two times of my life: 1) when I was being tested for cancer I had crazy deadlines and no will to work, I couldn't send back literally 100s of cards to the companies unfinished, so I did what I could to push threw and make a somewhat effort towards the cards, even though the body was willing the mind wasn't and 2) I had a bad experience where I was thrown out of my place of living after a falling out with a family member. So I am pleased to hear that someone is enjoying what I just have shown. Smile

Thanks

I thought your work on 2000ad was great Rich and I was lucky enough to pull a couple of great colour sketches on that set. Please don't think I was knocking you're "half heads", I was just blown away by your different style on this set and particulally liked the new cartoon style as well.

Sorry to hear about your misfortunes, I hope you're back on the right track.
