Hello, I’m Dex. This is my first article for the site, and its great timing that I get to write an article post San Diego Comic Con, giving me tons of fodder.
Over the past few years, I’ve been recently interested in buying and picking up prints exclusive to conventions and meeting the artists who create them. Much to my surprise, one of my favorite artists Jhonen Vasquez (creator of Invader Zim, Johnny the Homicidal Maniac, etc) was at the Bioshock 2 with a print inspired by the game. Jhonen was there to sign the limited prints, and even better, it was free.
For fans of the Bioshock series, it is amazing. Even if you aren’t a fan of the series, it still is quite a piece, especially for those (like me) who are fans of Jhonen’s work and/or darker work in general. For those interested in the production of “The Sisters,” Jhonen put up a comprehensive blog about creating the print on the official Bioshock 2 website under The Cult of Rapture.
“The Sisters” is the first piece in the Bioshock 2 Artists Series, artwork by famous artists inspired by the Bioshock series.
