Food One; mixed media on board, 17x21 inches - all Spidey stuff: split-Ditko face, camera, webs, and swiggles on the matte
Jesse Reklaw; mixed media on panel, 9x13 inches - I could deconstruct this one for an hour, I think - a ton of great choices, icon and iconic
Johnny Yanok; acrylic on wood, 18x14 - too delightfully funny and well-composed to pass up
Patrick Gannon; paper on wood - 6x8 inches - I liked the power
KMNDZ; acrylic on wood, 20x50 inches, gallery designated "best of show"
And the one that got away:
Max Grundy; acrylic on aluminum, 31x42.5 inches
If you have to lose out on a piece of art, it's great to lose out to someone where you go "awww... that's cool." The person who bought this was the writer of "Cloverfield."
Awww... that's cool.
But I am expecting to commission something from him (and the person who did that X-Men poster). And except for the (extremely awesome) "Iron Man" one, which is 50 inches tall, these were all priced at less (to significantly less) than the "World Without Cerebus" commissions, so it was hard to resist the ones I liked.
Yoskay Yamamoto; ink and paint on board, 30x23 inches; I loved the sneer, and the stylized Thor imagery
Aaron McKinney; acrylic and ink on board, 12.5x16.12 inches - this one was not too expensive; in the end, I just didn't like it as much as I thought I did
Chris Reccardi; acrylic and glitter on wood, 18x14 inches; appealing and styling... perhaps if it was Dark Phoenix instead
