Up for sale is an extremely rare offering of an original published piece of art by Scottish artist Marcus Gray...an inked splash page as published in his erotic comic "Emily's Secret", published in 2000. The image size is approximately 5" x 10" and is on 12" x 16" textured art paper and is signed and dated by the artist!. It is in perfect condition with no damage and comes with a certificate of authenticity from the artist. Purchased directly from Marcus several years ago for much more than the asking price. Sorry that the scan shown does not do justice to this wonderful piece. Born in 1971 in Glasgow, Scotland, Marcus Gray was brought up on a rich diet of Sci-fi TV, films and comics. Self taught, his first proper paintings were with the airbrush in commercial art and he also worked as a graphic designer for several years. A turning point came in 1992. Whilst browsing a bookshop, he discovered the work of Alphonse Mucha. Inspired by Mucha, he started his first "girlie" pictures and quickly established a "retro futuristic" style of his own. His work has been published in several fetish magazines, including Skin Two. He also writes and draws his own erotic comics. Very awesome! The shipping for this auction is just $10.00 in the USA; and insurance is optional and extra (foreign shipping charge to be determined). If you win any of the other 4 Marcus Gray originals I'm auctioning, they will ship at no additional charge! Will be packaged flat and secure for safe shipping! You will love this great artwork!
