“Once upon a time, there was a little boy who decided that drawing superheroes was his only realistic option, if he couldn’t actually become one.”  ~Alex Ross 

Featuring cover art, sketches, life-size head busts, and more, Marvelocity: The Art of Alex Ross celebrates one of the greatest artists in the field of comic books. For nearly 30 years, Ross has revitalized classic superheroes into works of fine art by illustrating characters including Spider-Man, Captain America, Iron Man, Storm from the X-Men, the Avengers, Black Panther and many more. Come explore how a three year old drawing TV commercials progressed to original comic books at age 13 on the road to becoming one of the industry’s preeminent artists and bringing to life some of the most iconic images of the Marvel Universe.
