Come on Farkers!!  We're raising money for some great charities!  Trading Card packs are already 1/3 sold out.  I know with the power of FARK and a greenlight we can sell out!

I'd help, but I'm getting a 404 when I hit the link.

The Fark link (with referrer info) is crapping out, but the basic link (www.islanddreamscards.com) works just fine.

i think i'll be the naysayer. the art on those cards is terrible. i'd rather just give $30 directly to a charity than claim ownership of any of that. the art is actually a disincentive.

We had almost 100 artists this year, some are really good, some not so good.  Many of the artists have also drew for Marvel and DC.  Over the past 7 years we have raised over $30,000 for Advocate Children's Charities.  There are some people that just don't understand trading card sized art (2.5 X 3.5 Inches).

i understand trading card art. i sold them for many years in a store. the examples given should probably be from the good artists though. instead it's just topless girls that looked like teenagers drew from titty mag images. subject matter matters, imo.

i also understand that just giving them $30 is still good. too bad some don't see it that way.

But, this is 'merica, have to post samples from all artists!!  There are a few more that I haven't posted on the site yet (but will this weekend).  Normally we do a 250-300 pack run.  Since we added more charities this year we're doing a 500 pack run.
We have sold about 1/3 of the packs in the last day.  Figured "what the hell", let's give the Farkers a chance to get some.
