And I love trading cards, so much that I make them for fun, and still collect whatever boxes or packs of the old ones that I can. I started this blog to keep designing for when I don't have cards in the works. No better way to start than with the duo (played by Smith and Jason Mewes), the pot-smokin' Laurel and Hardy.
First up is Mallrats, the movie my sis and I used to watch every single time I came home from college. Every. Single. Time. And there was an ever-present bag of chocolate covered pretzels.
It was a fuck ton of pretzels.
Riffing off the beloved 1989 Batman, I did a straight homage to that amazing card set, for both front and back.
The back has a scan of the old school cardstock (which is, actually, expensive as hell if you want to print on it), with each layer made slightly more transparent. I did a similar effect on both the Madman Comin' Atcha and GWAR cards I designed a couple years back.
Anywhoo, since Kevin went for more of a dramatic approach with Amy, I gave the design a slightly more adult look in the back treatment, though the copy's still potty mouthed.
It is, after all, from Jay's point of view.
Jay and Silent Bob Strike Back needs to not only have green to match Bluntman's logo, but ever-so much of a Star Wars card riff. The oval frames were added to give it an early '80s feel.
In placing Cock Knocker's image, I had to be careful to not crop off the tip.
One of the best part of the Incredible Change-Bots cards was getting to make bad puns in card titles. Couldn't resist this one...
And, finally, there's Yoga Hosers, which may not have Jay and Silent Bob, but it has Nazi bratwurst, which is never a bad thing, right?
I pulled the pink from the movie posters and, in wanting an icon to place in the corner, went straight for that Bratzi bastard's head. The background color was made mustard orange for obvious reasons...
