C2E2 Photos – Shiftylook Chalk Art Mural

Illustrator and chalk mural artist Eric Maruscak creates a mural for Shiftylook.com based video game properties of the Namco Bandai Group. The mural was created at the 2012 C2E2 Convention in Chicago, Illinois.

With so much going on, I’ve been behind on posts, so it is time to play a little catch up. Thanks for bearing with me as I take this walk down RECENT memory lane.

This one goes all the way back to April, when I once again appeared at the C2E2 Convention (Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo) at McCormick Place where I spent 30 hours on the floor creating a chalk mural for shiftylook.com, a website with ties to the Namco Bandai Group.

Video: 3D Chalk Art from World Science Festival Street Fair

Last weekend was the World Science Festival, and I was asked to create a 3D chalk mural for the Street Fair portion of the event along the south side of Washington Square Park in New York City. The themes of this years festival were "The Elegent Universe" and Robotics. So it was my job to create an illustration that would combine those two ideas, could be drawn as street art in about 8 hours time on a busy sidewalk in Manhattan, and have a 3D effect when it was done.

Video: Anime Central Madoka Magica Chalk Art Time Lapse

Last weekend was the Anime Central 15th Anniversary Convention at the Donald E. Stephens Convention Center in Rosemont, Illinois. I was asked to appear at the show and make a chalk art of the anime Puella Magi Madoka Magica, which is distributed by Aniplex USA. When I first saw the art, I knew this was going to be a tough one, especially coming on the heels just two weeks after my last trip to Chicago for C2E2 and the ShiftyLook chalk art mural.

Video: Shiftylook Chalk Art Time Lapse from C2E2 2012

It was my great honor to appear at the 3rd annual C2E2 convention and create a chalk mural for shiftylook.com. If you are not familiar with Shiftylook, they are an off-shoot of Namco Bandai games, where old video game characters are updated and given new life through webcomics. Their tagline is "Video Game Characters Reborn!", and it is very fitting. They are free to read at the site, so go enjoy yourself!

2012 April Show Appearances: C2E2 and Anime Central

I am happy to announce not one, but TWO upcoming shows in April, and both happen to be in Chicago! First up is C2E2 (also known as the Chicago Comic and Entertainment Expo) April 13th – 15th. This is my third time at this great show put on by the fine folks at Reed Pop, and I am happy to be returning.

I will be crawling around on the floor for three days making one of my giant chalk murals, and the sponsor of this piece is Shifty Look. Shifty Look is the awesome undertaking of Namco Bandai Games, and is a website where game properties and characters, some from a LONG time ago, are being given new life through really cool webcomics!

Video: The Legend of Zelda – Ocarina of Time Chalk Mural Time Lapse

Wahoo! I’ve been wanting to post this for a while now. Here is the time lapse video of my Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Chalk Mural that I made for Nintendo at San Diego Comic Con back in July. I had a wonderful time at the show, and I thought the piece turned out great! Crowd response was really positive, and I had been just itching to get the time lapse posted, but of course there was an approval process to go through first.

Photos from San Diego Comic Con – The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time Chalk Art

Illustrator and chalk mural artist Eric Maruscak creates a mural for Nintendo of The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time on the 3DS at the San Diego Comic Con in 2011.

Sorry I am behind in getting photos posted, it’s only been about a MONTH! Sheesh. As many of you know by now, I was brought by Nintendo to the San Diego Comic Con where I made a The Legend of Zelda: Ocarina of Time chalk mural in honor of the game’s release on the 3DS. This was my second Nintendo mural, the first being the Metroid: Other M chalk art at PAX Prime in 2010. Nintendo is always amazing to work for, putting on an incredible event…. and they didn’t disappoint this time either.
