Alex Ross is an comic-book painter and illustrator known for his photo-realistic images. First making a splash in a 'realistic' series called "MARVELS" for Marvel Comics, he later gave the same treatment to the DC Comics Superheroes in "Kingdom Come". He has lent his style to too many superheros to name... as well as painted images for movie posters, the Oscars, covers for The Villiage Voice, merchandise, posters, sculptures and more.
