Food for thought‘[...] do not think that good design can make a poor product good, whether the product be a machine, a building, a promotional brochure or a business man.

Wolverine's 35th anniversary art

December 18, 2009, 7:01 PM

This year, Wolverine celebrated his 35th anniversary — even though he is famed to be a lot older than that, he fought in the first world war, remember? Anyway, Marvel pulled a nice one, producing a lot of covers with Wolverine as if he were drawn by some of the most fameous artists in history: Van Gogh, Klimt, Utamaro, Dali and many more. Read more about it here: Wolverine Art Appreciation Month.

I nearly feel out of my chair with the Van Gogh one!
Reminds me of the old frosted mini wheats commercial.
The adult in me appreciates the classical art references but the kid in me goes crazy for ears on claws!
Thanks for that one!

Indeed, the inner kid jumps with joy at the awsomeness of that Wolverine holding out the ear. I always wondered when I was little why they never showed Wolverine hacking something. I know, PG and all that bull, but it would’ve been great to let old Logan have some real action from time to time, even if with robots like Samurai Jack—they bleed in black, not red — huge difference, right? :))

You’re welcome, thanks as well for reading ;)
Cheers!
