Alex Ross Rare Astro City #19 Cover Original Painting 1999 + Free Pencils For Sale
When I started doing business as Heroic Fine Art Gallery nearly 15 years ago I was fortunate enough to get to know Alex Ross. As part of my business plan, I vowed to also have many of Alex's ORIGINAL PAINTINGS adorn my walls. As "life" happens, I have relinquished nearly ALL of the original pieces I had acquired over the years. This is my LAST original painting by Mr. Ross, and it comes with the original pencil sketches as well. Being a HUGE Alex Ross fan, I always loved to see the genesis of his work and his creative process. In this sale you find the ORIGINAL PENCILS for the cover of ASTRO CITY # 19 from 1999. The pencils show a couple different cover ideas and notations, before he settled on the final design on the lower right of the page (I tried to include a close-up of that image). This pencil piece is offered FREE with the ORIGINAL PAINTED COVER that you see pictured. This is one of my favorite Astro City covers. It has most of the main characters in it (up to that time period, anyway). This painting is amazing, as is the airbrush work. This is a treasure that I absolutely hate to part with, but life moves on and I want to keep the gallery going and shift into another gear into my little gallery's future. This piece has a painted signature, and the pencils are also signed. Please let me know if you have ANY questions about this amazing sale. If you have EVER purchased an original from Alex, you would know that if this was listed on his website it would likely carry a price tag of 10K!! I am of course asking much less, and the pencils are a FREE BONUS. I hope this piece finds a good home. I have owned this piece for about 10 years and would love to hold onto it. If I don't get a reasonable offer by Thanksgiving I will tuck it away to be framed later and have it remain in my collection. It WILL be rebuilt to its former glory! :) I'm passing a little bit of savings on to you as well, with FREE SHIPPING when using the "Buy It Now" option so don't let this rare opportunity pass you by. I will offer FREE SHIPPING to International Buyers as well if you use the "Buy It Now" option, or an offer close to that. Please drop me a line with any questions prior to the sale's completion. Check out my other sales and thanks for looking!
