from last year about this time. i did a warm up drawing of the dalai lama one day at work, then tossed it in a pile of scrap where it sat until David Lomeli, Ace Designer at Upper Deck, decided to salvage it. a few weeks later he'd combined it with his ROBOTS4CHANGE logo and a tag thrown by Scot Reyes, another Upper Deck Legend. its amazing to me they did something so cool with trash, and none of us had to sweat too much. the ROBOTS4CHANGE branding has been fun to mess with, David did all kinds of sweet stickers and colorways, and there's always an excuse to use it- these 3 are from my july 2007 sketchbook. (the kids are working on a joint one for this year)thanks Scot and David!
