Comic Book Artist Rafael Grampá Offers 10 Commissioned Art Pieces For Facebook Followers

On March 6, 2013 Rafael Grampá reached out to his Facebook followers with a very unique offer.

The Brazilian comic book artist decided to open his first commission list, allowing 10 lucky people to choose their favorite super hero/heroes for Grampá to render in his unique detailed style.

The result would be ten one of a kind drawings inked over pencils on 11×17 strathmore paper finished with Grampá’s distinctive “character head” signature.

The cost of the art piece was dependent on how many figures Rafael drew. A full body, single figure cost $1,000, two characters $1,800 and three characters $2,400.

Smart fans, savvy art collectors and shrewd investors immediately seized the rare opportunity to own an original piece by Grampá considering that the illustrator doesn’t sell any of his original work.

Within hours the ten spots on the list were full. Below are the commissioned drawings plus a couple of bonus pieces. Congratulations to the fortunate owners and hopefully time permitting Rafael will continue with more commissions!

Here is Rafael’s second commission – Batman emerges from the smoke, cape billowing, grappling gun in hand ready to take on an unseen assailant!  Apparently Rafael liked the rendering so much, he had a hard time parting with it. I love the details of the gloves, boots, gun and cape. The smoke provides an element of mystery and danger. Thank you Rafael, for doing such an amazing job. I will cherish this forever!

Yes, I am the lucky owner of commission # 2 and I feel like Charlie must have felt after he found the golden ticket in Willy Wonka and The Chocolate Factory.

Facebook Overhauls News Feed With Sorting Feature, Bigger Pictures & More

before-after-photo

Today Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg unveiled a new look for the social network’s News Feed, the place where its 1 billion users congregate to see what’s happening with their friends, family and favorite businesses.

The makeover will carve out more space to show the billions of photos and videos that are being posted on Facebook each month. The redesign, which began rolling out Thursday, also ushers in more ways for users to control the types of posts that appear in their feeds.

Zuckerberg says he wants the News Feed to become more like a digital newspaper filled with compelling information tailored for each user.

The changes are Facebook’s attempt to learn more about its users and keep people coming back so the company can sell more advertising.
