On Saturday, I was walking around the Serramonte Mall Show when I saw a small crowd gathered around a table. This guy was drawing a sketch for a customer and everyone watching was in awe. I couldn't really see what he was drawing and didn't want to waste any time, so I decided to come back when things settled down.
His name is Bordin "Mark" Marsinkul and he told me a little about himself, while he was finishing a sketch for another customer.
It's pretty amazing the talent some people have. His ability to draw personalized, high quality colored sketches in less than 20 minutes is mind boggling. I knew right away, I had to have one.
For $25, you get a 8.5" x 11" colored, personalized sketch. The hardest part was deciding who I wanted drawn. But after a few minutes of deliberation, I settled on my favorite comic book character: Deadpool.
He starts out by taking a picture of you on his phone, which he then uses to draw a pencil sketch.
After you're okay with that, he begins outlining everything with black marker.
Then, he goes to work with his suitcase of colored pens.
And finally, he wraps things up by adding the fine details to the sketch.
Here's a photo of Marsinkul with the finished project:
If you're interested in seeing more of his creations, head over to his Facebook Page or if you're interested in checking out his comic book, Zacklin... go to his website: hyperbooster Studios.
Who's your favorite comic book character?
Who would you have chosen to get a drawing of?
