I get tons of messages asking how an artist goes about getting into the industry and as I've said to many, one way is to work on licensed sketch cards. Although it wasn't the way I got into doing official art, I know of a number of my peers who have gone this route and progressed on to bigger and better projects with studios and licensees.

Here's a link to Rocket Ink Studios and they are looking for artists to work on their first licensed set of cards. 

or email them samples of your work to:

Good luck!
