Ken Salinas Creates The Wild Guardian Who

Ken Salinas is an amazing artist and graphic designer residing in Austin, Texas. Ken’s drawings are so mesmerizing that he even had his own table at the Alamo City Comic Con a few weeks ago, which he was selling this exclusive piece – Wild Guardian Who.

Created exclusively for the Alamo City Comic Con, Wild Guardian Who is an amazing drawing that is limited to 100 prints featuring various characters to attract a large audience. Ken actually sent me the progress shots of the whole project so our audience can ogle over them;

The amazing attention to detail is my favorite part of this piece! From the colors and shading in the legs of Moishe to the details in the Tardis – it’s just so awesome to look at. I asked Ken what inspired him to create this piece and this is what he had to say;

When I was thinking about a piece to attract several genre’s attention, I came up with this. What is hot right now? Rocket Raccoon and the Dancing Groot. What can I pay homage to from growing up? Where the Wild Things Are. How can I tie them together using something easily recognizable? Dr. Who Tardis! The prints name exploded [into] Wild Guardian Who. Wanting to include a new artist with CCP Comics, I asked colorist and sculpture extraordinaire Jimmiek Rankin to come up with a background for this so that way I could include him in not only print sales but also fan interaction [at Alamo City Comic Con].Ken Salinas

Great work by Ken and his collaborator Jimmiek Rankin! I’m looking forward to seeing more work from Ken Salinas and if you are too you can add him on Facebook or follow on Instagram.
