Silver Surfer


The 2nd of 6 sketch cards that were rejected for a recently released trading card project.
This was rejected because Marvel no longer licenses just about any character affiliated with the Fantastic Four. We were _not_ given this restriction for this project, but the person at Marvel who edited my cards seemingly didn’t keep that in mind or by the time mine were checked the new rule was in place…
