Mark Romanoski has created works of art featuring some of the most iconic characters of our time from Batman, The Joker, The Incredible Hulk and Spider-Man to his lavish renderings of classic Universal Monsters.

14x11" sketch on vellum mounted to center of 11x15" white paper. Produced by David Byrd c.2005 after attending the funeral of promoter Bill Graham and embarking on a series of posters for Fillmore East shows that didn't originally have posters and expanding to include this Lou Reed piece. Included is the final print a 17x22" poster on archival paper using UltraChrome Pigmented inks that is inscribed in pencil in the lower right margin "Lou Reed World Tour 1974" and signed at left "19 David E Byrd 74". Mint. See previous item #2323 for original cover sketches for Lou Reed's Sally Can't Dance album.   Speaking to this design Byrd notes "This is a design I created in 2005 when I started my "Fillmore East Series". When I was at Bill's Funeral, David Graham (Bill's son) & Kip Cohen (Fillmore East Manager) suggested I should think about creating a series of posters for Fillmore East Shows that never had a poster. So I began the series in 2005 with "The Doors" March performance in 1968 - and continued with it till recently.  I always do pencil sketches which I scan and use to build the design on my Mac."

"DAREDEVIL" #111 COMIC BOOK COVER ORIGINAL ART BY RON WILSON.
Here's a rare chance to own a classic key issue from Bronze Age Marvel, featuring the very first appearance of The Silver Samurai, published in "Daredevil" #111 by Marvel, July 1974. Dynamic layouts and pencils by Ron Wilson, w/strong full-body images of both Daredevil and future Wolverine nemesis himself - Kenuichio Harada, The Silver Samurai! Inks attributed to long-time inker Frank Giacoia. 19.25x25.25" frame contains 11.5x17.5" artboard w/10x15" image area. While artboard shows obvious wear w/tattered edges, age tanning and significant damage to the original logo, there is softness to the structural integrity of the artboard. Rather than have it restored, we have decided to leave that decision to the winning bidder and have instead created a new logo overlay to display cleanly in the custom frame. This will allow for either displaying it as is in the current Mylar bag or have the piece restored. We have not altered the original art in any way, as the logo overlay is actually taped on top of the Mylar and does not contact the art. Art presents well and comes framed as shown w/a reading copy of the published comic book. While this original art has its issues, it has been off the market for many years, only recently having been discovered. Displays Fine as framed.

DAVID BYRD ORIGINAL ART PRELIMINARY SKETCHES FOR LOU REED SALLY CAN'T DANCE ALBUM FRONT & BACK COVER
Sketches are on 11.25x13" sheet of vellum that is tape mounted to center of a sheet of 11x14.25" white paper. Preliminary sketches include Byrd's notes on color and pencil notation at top right of second reads "Back Cover Renée Reflected In Aviators Centered On 12x12". Each sketch is signed at bottom "19 David Edward Byrd 74" and both have only minor handling. Exc. Also included is a 12.25" square original album proof signed boldly in the left margin. Scattered dots of age toning along the left side in cream background. VF. No doubt an outstanding group of artifacts from Reeds fourth and highest charting solo album after departing the Velvet Underground, but these sketches are truly exciting for the window they provide into the work of one of the eras most important artists and cultural trend setters. Speaking on his front and back cover of the back cover Bryd reflects "The most that I can remember about doing this album is that I met with Lou Reed at The Ninth Circle, an old gay bar on Christopher Street where Edward Albee drank, as well as my very own self. He brought a shoebox filled with SX-70 Polaroids of various drags and transsexuals. One of these was Sally, who can't dance and from the photographic evidence Sally liked to be swathed in Saran Wrap whenever possible, sometimes quite tightly, and always, of course, in the buff. No wonder she can't dance, she's mummified! I wonder if Sally survived the 70s - not a lot of us eccentric folk did!" I put her face reflected in a close-up of his sunglasses on the back of the album. He was a handsome man, in a damaged sort of way."

Estimated Value: $2,000 to $5,000
