Jerry Gaylord aka The Franchize returns with his take on Sly from Get Carter. Stallone purists may say, wait, he’s got the tats of Barney Ross. Ok, then for you folks, it’s Barney Ross!
Jerry is one of my favorite sketch artists. He always gives collectors more than they’re expecting and he is just plain good!
I highly recommend Jerry to all sketch collectors. He quickly responds to e-mails, his turnaround time is fast and he packages the art to ensure it arrives safely.

On December 31, 2013, Entertainment Law Digest posted a piece titled, “Here’s Hollywood! Credits…Money… Truth.”
The piece is about the lawsuit Millennium Films filed against screenwriter, David Callaham and the Writers Guild, “claiming the Guild falsely gave him (Callaham) sole credit for the story and top credit for the screenplay of the 2010 movie “The Expendables,” though Sylvester Stallone was its primary writer… Stallone is not a party to the lawsuit.
This will be interesting to see how it plays out.
