From his riverside studio near downtown Little Rock, artist Mitch Breitweiser travels the world (and sometimes time and space itself) with his favorite childhood heroes through his art. His illustrations can be found in comic book stores and in the hands of the young (and the young at heart) throughout the world.
The Arkansas native is into his fourth year as an illustrator for Marvel Comics, for whom he has illustrated many pop culture icons including Captain America, The Fantastic Four, The Hulk and many others. His childhood dream of drawing comics became an obsession during adolescence. The obsession gave way to reality when after years of hard work, a move to New York City, and incessantly knocking on doors, Mitch was offered a small but coveted illustration job for Marvel Comics. The small job lead to a long term contract, and the artist's star quickly began to rise.
Mitch's gritty and realistic take on superheroes is part of a growing neoclassical illustration movement that is breathing new life into old heroes. Cinematic action scenes, lush backgrounds, and emotive characters are the hallmarks of Breitweiser's work.
