The Best There Is
In essence, what I do is deconstruct a limited release, or first edition, comic and transform it into a one of a kind variant cover – on canvas. Each piece is fundamentally unique and frustratingly impossible to recreate. While my style has slowly evolved and broadened over the last decade, at heart it’s always remained the same – I want to create things that people wish they could have, but don’t exist. I take someone’s favorite comic, and turn it into a piece of art they get to put on their wall, but also get to be the only person in the world to have it.
I didn’t invent collaging a comic book, but I pioneered TF out of this.
More Information About The Artist
I’m just a guy who got laid off from his kitchen job one day and started making magnets out of comic books; I had no idea it would become what it is today. I still remember my first time going to Comic Con, not even as an artist, but a fan – I was terrified to even speak with the artists – I felt that I wasn’t on their level. I’d shyly approach tables, admiring their work and mustering the words to purchase pieces I couldn’t live without (which as a nerd, your first time at Comic Con, is everything around you), and take their respective business cards with me as I went. I had the ambition of collaborating with every single one of them, but neither the confidence, nor courage, to pursue it.
They were all celebrities to me.
Then one day, months later, I finally reached into that pile of cards.
That artist gave me the confidence to keep at what I do and inspired me to get out there and try my hand at Comic Cons-
– from there everything just sort of blew up on it’s own.
Officially established in 2013 as StarkeMatter and later reborn Comic2Canvas, has been dedicated to the production of fine quality creations since it’s very inception. Each and every single piece is one of a kind and IMPOSSIBLE to recreate. This is the ULTIMATE gift for any comic book fan or appreciator of fine graphic art.
Please note, I am, by definition, a collage artist and claim no ownership of any titles, names, characters or pre-existing art used to create my custom works. I have nothing but the utmost respect for the artists who created these original images and claim no ownership over their copyrighted materials. My works are my own, but only because their works are their own. I have paid the cover price on each and every image I use, and use only purchased materials. If there is any other way I can do this in an even more respectful manner, please feel free to let me know.
