MAKING A MARK: J.C. Grande The Artist From El Salvador Giving Lothar His Due

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to J.C. Grande, the artist from El Salvador whose portfolio splits in two. One; modern comic art and two; a darker, woodcut looking style that shoots each subject beyond Thunderdome. Check out these beauties to see what I mean. 

While Elektra there has a Deodato feel in parts, the piece is deserving of framing. Then there's the fury of Batgirl on the left. While Gotham's female protector is without 'powers', she sure looks like a force of nature here!

Daredevil's classic red jumpsuit is a natural fit for this style, but it's Lothar on the right there that got me jumping. The strongman was my pick of the Defenders of the Earth cartoon back in the 80's, and while I haven't seen that much of him since this slightly Rob Liefeld feeling image sure makes up for lost time.

This Tarzan number to me is the pick of the pure-bred litter in J.C.'s portfolio. Introducing a third colour to play silhouettes off makes for a rocking image, one I can't wait to see a sequel to!

To peek in for yourself and see if another has been pumped out, along with the rest of J.C.'s best, click the jump.
