Culture + Style: Big Apple Comic Con Chalk Artist Eric Michael Maruscak

Recently I have been interested in the effect that the comic culture has on fashion. One has only to look at the costumes of Lady Gaga and this seasons styles to see the influence.

This month I attended the Wizard World Big Apple Comic Con @ Pier 94 in NYC.

The chalk mural that artist Eric Michael Maruscak
was creating reminded me of the time I spent in Italy. I saw lots of chalk art there, primarily copies of religious paintings by famous Italian artists. Eric gives us a refreshing new and unique vision of the sidewalk chalk artist. He has an amazing technical ability combined with fantastically vibrant colors.
