Comic conventions are always known for bringing us fantastic Jurassic artwork and 2018’s New York Comic Con continues that trend! Bottleneck Gallery / Vice Press and artist Matt Ferguson are bringing fantastic artwork to those lucky attendees of New York Comic Con, featuring the iconic Tyrannosaurus Rex (Rexy) chasing down Ellie, Muldoon and Malcolm in the patented Jurassic Park Jeep. It is certainly one of the most impressive pieces of art ever made available for the Jurassic fans!
When asked by community member Jurassic Collectables about the influences, artist Matt Ferguson had this to say about the creation of the print.
You can definitely see the Chronicle Collectibles influence on this work. The head and body proportions are nearly identical to what Chronicle produced with the Breakout Rex. Matt also referenced old material as well (like animation tests), but I can’t help but feel ties to Crash McCreery. The birdlike nature of the foot really sells the art print for me and that certainly ties into so much of the old concept art that I love dearly. Aside from the obvious referencing, the jungle setting and the lighting really set the mood for this print. This one is an absolute MUST HAVE!
This extremely limited item will be sold at booth #2160 on the convention floor. Find information of the original and the variant print below:
