Print Pre-Sale

AMAZING SPIDER-MAN #646, Variant Cover. 2010.
Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 x 17".

I've got 3 new prints from Grey Matter Art for sale. (Spidey, Wolvy, and DD!) Is the art a decade old? Sure. But they happen to be some of my most requested works. All are 16 x 24" artist proofs limited to 30 each, hand numbered and signed. I'll receive them soon and ship next month. Remarques are available, but will delay shipping. (I only have 2 hands, and one is not as good as the other!)

2009. Gouache and acrylic on bristol board, 11 × 17″.

Gouache, watercolor, and acrylic on bristol board, 13 × 19″.

Mainframe Comic Con

Ink & watercolor on paper, 9 × 12″.

I'll be (virtually) at Mainframe Comic Con tomorrow at 12 p.m. EST. We'll have a dozen 4x6" commission-style head shots that will be up for purchase during my hour-long spotlight panel. Full details from my art rep below.

The piece above will be auctioned off at the end of my panel. (You can watch me ink & color the artwork on YouTube.) Hope you can join us!


12:00pm:  Paolo Rivera Spotlight  

He'll answer questions from his Host, the audience & amazing everyone with his live drawing & painting abilities!

Room: Hall B 

Host: Rodney Colon

If you saw us at Comic Art Live, this is going to be very similar.  Paolo has painted 4 x 6"  headshots of some of your favorite characters & we'll be selling them during the panel, nowhere else. 

The little headshots will be $200 & will be randomly offered throughout the panel.  The first person to state "I'll Take It" in the comments section will be able to purchase it after the panel.

There will be a full figure Spider-ham 4x6" ink & watercolor piece that we'll offer to the panel, a 9x12" Ink & watercolor Captain America that Paolo will be painting during the panel that will be auctioned at the end, a Battle Damaged Spider-man 9x12" Bust that is fully painted already which will be auctioned during the panel & saving the BEST FOR LAST, we'll auction off a fully painted Gouache 9x12" commission spot that Paolo will complete in a month for the winner.  Paolo hasn't taken commissions in years so this is a rare opportunity.
