“I am Iron Man.” – Tony Stark
Friday evening I received a nice surprise from the fellows at Grey Matter Art. They’ve made it official with MARVEL COMICS!!! After picking my jaw up off the floor, I proceeded to read the rest of their email and it got even better…Matt Ferguson produced the first poster for Grey Matter’s team-up with Marvel, and that poster happens to be IRON MAN!!!

Here’s the official press release: Grey Matter Art under license from Marvel Studios is proud to present a new officially licensed, limited edition glow in the dark screen print for the iconic film, “Iron Man.” This is the first project Grey Matter Art has released under Marvel, and they chose to work with Matt Ferguson to bring you his take on this great action film.
Here’s what illustrator Matt Ferguson has to say about working with Grey Matter on this iconic Marvel property…”It goes without saying that I love Marvel and I love working on Marvel artwork, so this poster is a dream come true. I have always wanted to do my own take on the first Iron Man film and working on this project with Grey Matter Art has been an absolute blast. I was allowed complete freedom to come up with a composition that I felt best suited the film and the character. I love the classic Iron Man ‘ground pound’ pose and so I wanted to incorporate that into the design, I also feel like it is somewhat a companion piece to my Guardians Of The Galaxy/Star Wars poster.”
Mike Gregory from Grey Matter Art add…”Working with Matt Ferguson has been an absolute pleasure. He is so open to ideas and really works with you to make the outcome the best it can possibly be. Being this is our first release for Marvel, I really wanted to start off with Matt’s work and give everyone a great licensed Iron Man poster. There really hasn’t been much released for this film, so I am happy to have Matt represent it in a great way. After doing this with Matt, we are definitely going to be working more with him in the coming months, and really think you will like what we have in store.“
Matt Ferguson’s IRON MAN will be released by Grey Matter Art on Thursday, June 4th at a random time between 1:00 and 2:00 PM EST on Grey Matter’s Webstore!
