Mars Attacks Heritage – Earth Bombs Mars

Cards 13 and 14 of 106 sketch cards done for the Mars Attacks Heritage trading card series by Topps.

A riff on Earth Bombs Mars, card #47 of the original Mars Attacks cards set…

With a large stack of cards to do in a short period of time I tried something new here. Repeating, yet tweaking, images and playing with grey tones.

Mars Attacks cards first appeared in 1962, conceived and produced by Len Brown, Woody Gelman, Wally Wood, Bob Powell and Norman Saunders.
The Heritage card series is celebrating the 50th anniversary, which is now already reportedly sold out.
