Mark Texeira has long been one of the best to bring fine art painting to the sequential art world, book covers, galleries and more. Now, it’s just been announced, with the last of his painting commissions out the door, that Texeira has a limited amount of space on his schedule to take on a few more full painting commissions.
Now is the chance to get the character of your choice in a full oil, one of a kind, rendition. If you’ve seen Tex’s recent Vampirella, Conan and Wolverine you know… So let your imagination run wild. Who would you choose?
We’re sure no-one reading this will be stuck for inspiration if you’ve see any of Texeira’s work on such US comic titles as Ghost Rider, Black Panther, Moon Knight or his creator-owned project Pscythe, as well as an upcoming Wolverine special!
