Bug Cleaning & New Features
I'm sorry for my extended away from the site. I'm back though and have some plans for SketchCollectors.com!
First up, I have just finished going through all of the bugs you have sent me and all artists and new sets should be cleared up! This means that everyone should be able to go through and edit any cards you've uploaded and select an artist or set that was missing previously. I've also updated the set groups at the top of the page so that if you select "** DC Sets **", for example, you'll now see all of the DC-related cards correctly.
Next up, I will be fixing the comments system which has been busted for quite some time. I'll send out notification when this is ready to go again. This is a members-only feature but I am considering freeing it up for all. Your input on this is welcome.
How about bigger card uploads?! It's been requested by a subscriber that upload image size be increased. I think this is a great idea considering that monitors are getting bigger and resolutions are getting higher. Exactly how big is unknown but I'll be sure to let everyone know in a future update.
Finally, I will be adding a new and DIFFERENT kind of gallery to the site that will appeal to a subset of collectors already members here as well as bring in even more new collectors! Stay tuned, I'm really excited about this one!
So we've recently passed the 75,000 card mark! That's amazing and I'm thrilled that so many collectors still use this site and keep it growing! There are 911 total user accounts with 33 users currently supporting the ongoing maintenance and hosting fees through their subscription. Thank you all in particular! There are over 171,000 files in the gallery directory that total over 6.2GB of data. 297 sets and 1,875 artists are in the drop down boxes.
Thank you all and please email me any questions, concerns, etc. Please continue to submit specific bugs, artist requests, set requests, etc. through the web form. I know I still have some feature requests to respond to and I plan to address those as soon as I can.

Sketch Collectors Promo Card P01
The first Sketch Collectors promo card is now available! The front art was completed by one of my favorite artists, Irma "Aimo" Ahmed! These are two original characters created by Irma for this card with a little direction by myself. I will have plenty, but once these are gone, they're gone and I will print a second promo by another artist. The first convention this was available at was Star Wars Celebration 5 and it will also be available at Dragon*Con.
