A long time ago, someone very dear to me gave me advice. Part of which was basically ‘At some point in your life have some kind of art made for you, it doesn’t matter what it is’.
Now as a self confessed geek/ nerd, I’ve always gone for things that have resonated with me, on one level or another. Whether that was toys, what I read, games, art, etc.
When I was in my early 20’s I got a tattoo, to always remind myself of what ideals and principles to strive for (my scrawny arms just happened to come free with the tattoo).
Recently I learned that an artist I know, thru my love of all things geek, was accepting commissions. As I have been a fan of his art style, I jumped on that chance and had a piece of art commissioned of my 3 favourite characters from the Marvel universe.
The artist, was Wayne Talbot. One third of the Irish Pubcast crew, Whovian, contributor to geekirelandonline, and alround nice guy.
With his permission I grabbed a couple of his works, and thru them together to showcase some of his talent.
**Disclaimer- the first piece of art featuring ‘Dark Wayne’ was by another very gifted artist, Lisa Marie Farrell, and was commissioned by Ciaran Marcantonio. **
If you like Wayne’s style, then good news. He’s accepting some commission work at the moment.
