MAKING A MARK: Edward Pun - The American Whose Art Means What It Says

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Edward Pun, the craftsman born in Hong Kong and now based in Washington DC, whose art comes prepackeged with enough 'Wow!' and 'Great Scott!' to drop the jaws of pop fans in both the east and the west. Just check these puppies out;

The Green Goblin image needs to be a cover, if not a poster! I know a warsuit had it's motives, but if the classic Goblin mask could've looked half as cool as Edward makes it look here, Spider-man the movie sure missed out on a lot. As for Lion-O from Thundercats, he's never looked meaner - or more realistic. Just look at that sword!

Still on the sword thing, look at this - it's Psylocke! How long since Making A Mark actually featured it's 'comparison piece' character? (Wait, don't answer that!) Sword or psychic katana, the choice is yours... Zatanna on the left there is pretty easy on the eye too of course, and speaking of pheromones...

Flash Fact: I'm always on the lookout for great Spider-Woman art. I've liked Jessica from the moment I clapped eyes on her and this piece not only proves she rocks one of comics wickedest costumes, Edward tackles the character with a fresh pose and composition, right down to small tweaks like the length and shape of her hands, which help to put the 'arachnid; in the arachnid!

For more of Pun's fanwork, from Thing to Cloak and Dagger, check him out right here on Blogger, after the jump.
