About 3 months or so I moved to a different state, and for the first time in 22 years i finally had a room of my own, so I was now able to hang posters on the walls, display action figures and most importantly, fully express my passion: comic books. So I decided to paint a mural on my new blank walls, the choice was hard but i had to go with the comic book i’ve liked the most in the past couple years: Hawkeye. Matt Fraction is doing an amazing job and so are the rest of the people involved, but personally David Aja is my favorite (The Immortal Iron Fist is deffinitely worth a look too.) So i went back to the first issues of Hawkeye and i ultimately decided upon this page from #8. It conveys so much without any dialogue and i just love the overall oldies feel of this issue as a whole. So from that point on it was just a matter of doing the actual mural (which involved breaking a sweat in tracing those rectangles) Anywho, here’s the first look at what I’ve got so far and i will be posting more pictures as I go on.

As far as I’m concerned, there are few things in the world more beautiful than 1980’s poster art, particularly in the horror genre. Bright, bold colors and painstaking attention to detail, lovingly hand-painted by various masters of their craft. They just don’t make ‘em like this anymore.
