FROM SAL VELLUTO’S ANNOUNCEMENT ON FACEBOOK:
A SPECIAL DEAL FOR ART COLLECTORS (Read to the end)
Our offer for the sale of the 3 originals (sketch, pencils, inks) of our
BLACK PANTHER variant cover has been well received. Bob Almond and I are now considering some potential buyers
and we¹ll be finalizing our sale around the time Marvel solicits the issue with our cover. IN THE MEANTIME… we¹d like
to offer 3 special commissions, based on the cover sketches Marvel didn¹t choose. They¹re all pretty evocative of the
spirit and the power of the BLACK PANTHER and would enrich any art collection since they¹re done by the art team
(Sal & Bob) who has drawn this beloved character more than anyone else in the business.
THIS IS HOW THE DEAL WORKS. 1) You get to choose one of the three sketches. (A, B or C) 2) I will draw a very tight
pencils version on cover stock, based on the sketch you choose. 3) Bob will ink my pencils on a separate cover stock.
(He will ink over “blue lines”). You will end up with 3 separate original pieces ( sketch, pencils and inks) for a special
price of $ 595.00 plus shipping. There will be only one set done per sketch, and will be adjudicated on a first come
first served basis. Please PM me or Bob for reservations and further details.
UPDATE: Option C is no longer available because a client commissioned Sal to render it (see below).
