RANDOM WORK OF WOW: The Rhino By Elias Antonio Vazquez

Sometimes you stumble across a portfolio where the artist only has a couple of comic based pieces, other times there can be just one work so brilliant, you'd risk being stoned to death by fellow art lovers for putting something else beside it. These are Random Works of Wow and illustrating the point this week is Elias Antonio Vazquez with The Rhino.

I love this! Rhino is one of those classic Marvel characters that it seems few writers know how to handle, apart from write as hired muscle. He starred in one of my favourite Spider-Man stories ever, which I wrote about here, and it's just great to see despite the mish-mash over how he should be treated, he still has fans dedicated enough to produce works like this in his honour.

  1. This looks like one of those Marvel Masterworks card series that came out in the 90s, the painted pictures that were later put into a magazine.
    Good artwork.

  2. Thanks guys - I think it is awesome too. Most people have Rhino massing something in a poster image. To have him standing still and just leave his intent to his eyes is another skill entirely!
