Jared Kelley Tapped to Paint Cards for In The Game
In the Game President, Dr. Brian Price, has announced that Jared Kelley will be painting trading cards for upcoming Sportkings and In the Game sets. The artist has built a strong reputation based on his painting abilities and recently painted US Presidents for Upper Deck's 2011 Goodwin Champions.
The first painted cards from Kelley will appear in Sportkings Series E, which is slated for release in the spring of 2012.
"We will be adding a couple of new wrinkles in the painting of these cards to make them even better than the ones Jared has done before," said Price in a press release. “I am excited to have Jared join our family as we are all dedicated to make trading cards that collectors want to collect."
Based out of rural Alabama, Kelley holds a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in Studio Painting from Auburn University Montgomery. He's been a teacher and is the Executive Assistant for the Alabama Alliance for Arts Education.
Kelley's work in Goodwin Champions has been very popular, with the rare Masterpieces selling for hundreds of dollars.
