What are Marvel art NFTs from VeVe?
In its latest partnership with Marvel Entertainment, Vive has dropped three limited edition NFTs featuring Marvel art. The NFTs featured artwork from three Marvel artists, Sara Pichelli, Brian Stelffreeze, and Skottie Young. All NFTs are based on the Immutable X scaling solution.
Let’s take a closer look at the three NFTs:
Miles Morales: Spider-Man #25 by Sara Pichelli
Currently based in Rome, Sara Pichelli is best known for co-creating the new Spider-Man, Miles Morales. After working in the animation industry for a few years, she began her career in the comics industry with IDW Publishing books (Star Trek and Ghost Whisperer). She has been working with Marvel since 2008 and is the lead artist for the second installment of Ultimate Comics: Spider-Man.
She has also won an Eagle Award as well as a Harvey Award. The NFT is a proof of Pichelli artist Miles Morales up for auction.
The Amazing Spider-Man #1 by Scotty Young
Finally, Scotty Young is auctioning his original artwork for The Amazing Spider-Man from April 2022. Young is a cartoonist who has worked with Marvel as a comics writer and artist for over two decades. While his artwork has appeared in Young Variables, he is a writer on Strange Academy, Giant Sized Little Marvels, Deadpool, and Rocket Racoon.
“The first drawing of Spider-Man was done digitally,” he said. “I printed that on 11×17 Bristol board in light blue and finished it the traditional way with brush and ink. Finally, the original artwork was returned to my computer and scanned in digital ink.
Black Panther #25 by Brian Stelfrith
Brian Stelfreeze is the artist behind the reboot of Marvel’s Black Panther series. He is also famous for his cover works for X-Men, Hulk, Daredevil and Spider-Man. He also worked with DC Comics on the Eisner Award-winning projects Batman: Black & White and Wednesday Comics.
Now, starting in May 2021, he’s auctioning the original color artwork as a Marvel art NFT. In fact, this cover image is from the final issue of Black Panther Volume 7.
