Texeira Adds Bite to Big Apple!

New York–This weekend, Pier 92 in Manhattan is going to be jam-packed with comics, gaming and animation fans, as the Big Apple Convention celebrates the merging with Wizard Entertainment and AND a new location. Artist Mark Texeira will be on hand to add some bite to the event, and celebrate his own first–the release of his new art book from Vanguard Productions!

Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira

Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira

Currently working on a much anticipated Punisher mini-series from Marvel, fine art painter and illustrator, Texeira is known for his work on “Ghost Rider,” “Moonknight,” “Black Panther,” “Hercules,” “Jonah Hex,” and far too many books to mention here. Mixed in with his love of sequential art, Mark’s old world style meshed with pop art has graced cover after cover for Marvel, DC Comics, Dark Horse, Dynamite Entertainment, Def Jam Records, and again, for too many clients to mention here.

That’s why Vanguard Productions has just released a definitive art book on the man to chronicle this amazing career and keep us all up to date! Entitled “Tex: The Art of Mark Texeira…The Artist’s Great Escape,” the lush 128 book is available in hardcover, softcover and a limited run of deluxe hardcovers (featuring 16 additional pages and slipcase). The book, authored by Renee Witterstaetter (with research by Patricia Snodgrass and Robin Dale), also features a partial bibliography of Mark’s work, to aid all those collectors out there shouting for more information.

Look for more Mark’s new book both at the Renee Witterstaetter/Eva Ink table next to Mark in artist alley and at the Vanguard Productions booth. In addition to this tome, Mark will also have prints and his new softcover sketchbook, “Babes and Brawn,” available while supplies last, while also doing commissions and signing at the event.

Eva Ink and Woodcrest Productions are also proud donors for charity auctions sponsored by Wizard/Big Apple this next weekend at their two parties scheduled to liven up Pier 92 even more!

Friday night will feature a performance by Naughty By Nature!
The Saturday Night party will feature a performance by Taylor Dayne! A live band, comedy show, costume contest, silent auction, and a charity auction on stage will also highlight the Saturday night event!

The Charities being featured are Comix 4 Sight–benefiting comics writer John Ostrander and his fight against Glaucoma, Snowball Express–which is the charity for the children of our fallen military heroes. (It started in 2006 with a simple idea: Provide hope and new memories to the children of our fallen military heroes who died while on active duty since September 11, 2001), and MoCCA–devoted to the preservation, study and display of comic and cartoon art.

Other creators joining Mark Texeira at the Big Apple show include actors and artists such as: Thomas Jane, William Shatner, Joe Simon, Kate Mulgrew, Jim Lee, Jim Seranko, Joe Kubert, Adam Kubert, Andy Kubert, Neal Adams, Yogi Berra, Adam Hughes, Jim Cheung, Herb Trimpe, Billy Tucci, Alex Saviuk, Jim Salicrup, James O’Barr, Mike McKone, Alex Maleev, Leo Liebelman, and many more!
