Ryan Heshka - Traitor's Revenge - mixed media on board

Gallery 1988 (L.A.) has a great show "Under The Influence: A Tribute To Stan Lee." I had the pleasure of meeting Stan Lee in 2001 while I was working on Spider-Man: The Animated Series for Sony/MTV. Stan was the perfect gentleman and very gracious. I even sat in with him during a radio interview and I couldn't believe how charming and enthusiastic he was despite the fact that the interviewer asked THE MOST ridiculous mundane questions that Stan's probably been asked 1000 times (i.e.: "What's it like creating something that's so popular?", "How did you come up with the idea for Spider-Man?" "Why do you think people like Spider-Man?" and "Are you happy people like Spider-Man?")

Check out the show's artists' work here!
