Artist Creates Famous TV and Movie Athlete Trading Cards (Pics)
Have you always wished you could collect trading cards for fictional TV and movie athletes? Probably not. But you probably do now that you know they actually exist.
A California-based artist named Cuyler Smith has created this series of amazing TV and movie athlete trading cards, complete with biographical and statistical information one the back.
Smith has a BFA in animation from Laguna College of Art and Design and an MFA in illustration from Cal State-Fullerton, and has had his work displayed in galleries all over the country. However, I bet his parents are really proud of him now that he’s received validation from the internet.
