Jarrod Alberich aka The Yard Sale Artist created the Jack Carter piece above for me after I won a contest he was running (something he regularly does for his fans).
Jarrod calls himself The Yard Sale Artist because he uses only materials that he finds at yard sales, thrift stores, dumpsters and so on. Jarrod is a great guy and his prices are reasonable. You can see more of his art here. This is my second piece by Jarrod and my guess is that there will be more to come!
Thomas Boatwright is back and Jack Carter is with him.
Over the years I’ve gotten several Stallone pieces from Thomas. Here is what has been posted so far… there are more to come.
If you’d like to see more of Thomas Boatwright’s art check out his blog and his DA site. Send him some love.
If you get commissions, you should consider a piece from Thomas. He keeps you totally in the loop on his progress, finishes his commissions on or ahead of schedule, has very reasonable prices, is a fantastic artist and always gives you more than you’re expecting! – Craig
I first learned about Kristian Rossi through a Kickstarter. Kristian was providing the art for a story written by Justin Ryan called Trespasser which looked pretty cool. I got on board for an autographed copy with a piece of custom art.
Kristian came through with a real winner. He nailed Carter’s look and attitude. I hope this won’t be my last piece from Kristian.
This amazing watercolor was created by Joshua Greathouse. When I saw that Greathouse was taking pre-show commissions for HeroesCon, I contacted him about a Get Carter piece. Man, did he nail it!
The funny thing is, when I picked up the art, Greathouse told me it was the second piece he’d ever done for me. I was sure it was the first. Greathouse went on to say he’d done a Rocky sketch for me at another show several years ago. That night I checked my online posted art and there was nothing by Greathouse. Of course I have many pieces that have not been scanned and posted yet. When I returned home I found the piece Greathouse was talking about. You won’t believe his growth as an artist. I’ll post the Rocky piece soon.
In the meantime, if you’re a sketch collector, check out Greathouse on the web. You can find him here and here.
Our POW [Picture of the Week] this week is Sly and Rachel Leigh Cook from Get Carter. Click on the photo to see a full-size version. – Craig
Today we have Sly as Jack Carter drawn by Shawn Surface. The scan doesn’t nearly come close to doing this piece justice.
Shawn is an all-around nice guy and his art should be getting more attention.
Last year Greg Smallwood announced he was doing a limited number of head sketches for charity. I was more than pleased to get Smallwood’s very cool riff on Sly as Jack Carter! You can see more of Greg Smallwood’s art here.
Dave Wachter is back and he brought his take on Sly from the Get Carter. I met Dave several years ago and became an instant fan. I wasn’t the only one to discover Dave’s fantastic sketches! How can you not like a great guy who is a terrific artist?
It has become a HeroesCon tradition that I get Dave to draw his take on Sly. Somehow this one was never posted until now.
You can see more of Dave’s art at his site. – Craig
Peter Simeti is a writer, artist and publisher. Peter is the founder of Alterna Comics as well as the writer of The Chair.
Peter is active on Twitter and one night I saw he was offering 5 minute sketch cards. I jumped on board for a couple. Jack Carter was the first.
Jonathon Brandon Sawyer created his take on Sly as Jack Carter teamed with Chris Mills’ and Rick Burchett’s Gravedigger McCrae. How cool is that? Very.

Gravedigger: Hot Women , Cold Cash by Mills and Burchett gets an A+ rating and is available at the link. – Craig
