  • Description: One of Mark Stutzman's first video game projects was the box art for Marvel's The Punisher, released in 1990 for DOS. Developed by Paragon Software and published and distributed by MicroProse Software, which would later acquire Paragon in 1992. This is an absolutely striking rendering of The Punisher, and among the best for Punisher video game licensees. Due to limited printing techniques at the time, the game's title/logo was incorporated directly into the box art painting. In addition, "TM" text below the title was added with a dry transfer type like Letraset.

    The artwork shows minor fading, most visible at bottom right where Mark signed his name. The piece had at one point been framed for a gallery show but did not have archival glass with UV protection, as it was far less common/affordable back then. The slightly darker areas at the outside had been covered by the mat.

    Medium: Watercolor and gouache on stripped board
    Image Area: 17" x 21" (on 21" x 25" board)
