Jack Torrance from "The Shining" by MilkBone Jones. Does anyone have any information about the artist? I bought the card on eBay a couple of years back. Anyway, he/she is pretty good.

Jack Nicholson

Sorry, don't know about the artist but that is a phenomenal sketch. The Shining is one of my all time favourite films. Funnily enough I tuned the settings on my first HD tv/blu-ray to that EXACT image on your card where you see he is losing his mind as he stares out the window. Love it. Very jealous!

Thanks. This is the only sketch card that I own. I feel kinda bad for the artist as it only sold for 20 bucks. It should've sold for way more.

Very good likeness. One thing I feel I can say is that sketch card prices should not be confused with the quality of the work. If a sketch card is released in a licensed set, it has an automatic value. If the artist is well known and has a reputation, that adds more value. If the subject of the sketch is deemed important, more value. Finally we get around to what it actually looks like and then based on subjective taste, it finds its value on the sliding scale.

There are probably 1000s of ACEO sketches available for sale that are of similar quality to the licensed sketch card. Many are far superior than the average sketch you might pull from a product. However they are not licensed and the artist is likely no one you know. So they can be had for $20 because the supply is great and the demand is low. Doesn't change the quality of the artwork though. Congrats on a great choice.
