CGC Welcomes Bill Sienkiewicz, Award Winning Comic Book Artist, for an Exclusive Private Signing

Posted on 6/1/2021

CGC announces the first In-House Private Signing with the highly-requested Bill Sienkiewicz!

CGC is thrilled to host the talented Bill Sienkiewicz for an In-House Private Signing at our headquarters. Sienkiewicz is a multi-Eisner-winning, Emmy-nominated artist best known for revamping comic and graphic novel illustration from 1980 onward — most notably with Marvel's Elektra: Assassin, Moon Knight and New Mutants (which inspired FX’s Legion and Disney’s New Mutants), and his acclaimed graphic novel Stray Toasters — which earned him an international reputation and cult status across media industries.

In addition to signatures, Sienkiewicz also will be offering a limited number of his iconic Remarques for purchase. See pricing and more details below.

Bill Sienkiewicz is a classically trained painter whose comic art incorporates abstract and expressionist influences and any combination of oil painting, acrylics, watercolor, mixed media, collage and mimeograph — previously unheard of in comics. His paintings have graced the National Museum of Fine Arts in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil; galleries in New York, Paris, Barcelona and Tuscany; Spain's famed La Semana Negra (The Black Week) Festival; and the internationally touring exhibition Marvel: Universe of Super-Heroes.

Sienkiewicz’s retrospective art books include the Eisner-winning Bill Sienkiewicz’s Mutants and Moon Knights and Assassins (IDW), Revolution (Six Foot Press) and The New Mutants: Bill Sienkiewicz Marvel Artist Select Series (IDW). He also illustrated The Island of Dr. Moreau (Beehive), Voodoo Child: The Illustrated Legend of Jimi Hendrix (Kitchen Sink) and Moby Dick (Classics Illustrated).

Sienkiewicz’s commercial and editorial work includes posters for the 2018 Halloween remake, Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse, Netflix’s The Black Godfather, Logan, The Green Mile, Unforgiven and the 2006 Winter Olympics; advertising campaigns for Legion, Nike, MTV and Nissan; CCG game cards Magic: The Gathering and VS System; and magazines such as Playboy, Entertainment Weekly and Spin. He also has designed album covers for Seth MacFarlane, Kevin Smith, RZA/Bobby Digital, Kid Cudi, EPMD, T.I. and Bruce Cockburn.

He also has contributed on-set props and portraiture for Legion, storyboards for The Green Mile and production and character design for the PBS children's TV series Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego? The character of Kingpin in Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse was modeled after Sienkiewicz’s interpretation in Marvel’s Daredevil: Love and War. He has taught at The Illustration Academy in Kansas City, MO and The Kubert School in Dover, NJ, and spoken at the California College of the Arts in San Francisco and ArtCenter in Pasadena, CA.

Sienkiewicz has garnered numerous accolades — most notably 2019 Eisner Awards for the Eisner Hall of Fame and Best Archival Collection for IDW’s Bill Sienkiewicz’s Mutants and Moon Knights and Assassins, 2004 Eisner for DC Comics' The Sandman: Endless Nights, and 1995 and 1996 Emmy Award nominations for Where In the World is Carmen Sandiego?

In the mid-80s, Elektra: Assassin swept the top comic illustration awards in the US and Europe, with a Kirby Award, Yellow Kid Award and Gran Guigiri Award. He also earned a Spectrum Grand Master Award, Inkpot Award, four Eagle Awards, Alpe d’Huez Award, Haxter Award, Adamson Award, March of Dimes Award for charity work and a Lifetime Achievement Award from the Newark School of Fine and Industrial Art, which he attended.

“Bill Sienkiewicz has influenced and contributed so much to the comic and entertainment worlds with his brilliant works of art,” commented Brittany McManus, CGC Signature Series Director. “We are honored to host him here at CGC Headquarters for this amazing private signing opportunity, and we cannot wait to see all of the submissions we will receive for this event!”
