MAKING A MARK: Daniel Crosier - The Wood Burn Artist Setting Pop Art On Fire

Twice a week, Making A Mark gives an insanely talented artist some IADW brag-space. Today goes to Daniel Crosier, an artist who actually makes a mark in a whole new way - burning his artistry onto a canvas of wood. And you thought paper and ink was time intensive!

Not only does the double shot above tease what an awesome crossover it would be if the Green ever entered Asgard, the painstaking detail in both Thor and Swamp Thing proves Daniel's talent is its own force of nature.

What's a gallery of any kind without Batman? As for Hawkman and The Atom on the left, I really dig how the burn work on Hawkman's wings, draws your attention right into DC's most unsung duo.

If you aren't clicking to enlarge that Doctor Strange, you really are missing out! How Daniel gets the tonal graduation of Stephen's cape, face and clothes in such a precise manner, with a not-so-precise tool, takes his talent to a whole other dimension.

For more of Crosier's wood-burned work, visit his personal website after the jump.
