The design was a joint collaboration between myself and Dallas artist David Rodrigues (www.artlovemagic.com). But the finished painting is all David!
David specializes in doing life size painting at get togethers, (corporate, church, events, festivals, etc...) working in acrylics and using a sheet of plywood as his canvas! When I asked him why he worked in that medium, he told me, "hey, have you seen how much it costs to create a six-foot canvas?" But economy of scale aside...working on this medium adds a very unique texture to his finished work.
This poster image in particular has proven to be so popular, that at this year's Comic Con International (http://www.comic-con.org/cci/cci_reg.php) people scarfed them up at record pace! In fact, on Thursday afternoon (a day and a half into the event), we had to stop giving them out, so we'd have some left over for the weekend!
So definitely don't miss your chance to score one of these at one of our upcoming appearances (next up: MidOhio-Con. See: http://www.midohiocon.com/)
