    Marc Ericksen Captain Commando Capcom Advertisement Painting Original Art (Capcom, c. 1980s). Those who grew up during the 1980s and 1990s may well have seen Mark Ericksen's art as a part of their childhood, especially those who owned a Nintendo Entertainment System (NES), or a Sega Genesis. Ericksen has been creating game art for almost four decades, and did the art for this Capcom promotional poster featuring their mascot of the 80s, Captain Commando. He is responsible for some of the most iconic box art of the 8 bit and 16-bit eras, and has maintained a huge presence in the video game industry, with almost 150 pieces, including box art for 90 games, such as Strider, Bad Dudes,Thunder Force II, Steel Empire, and of course the famous Mega Man 2 oddity. This depiction of Captain Commando also appears on the back of the boxes of some of Capcom's highest profile titles of the era, including - yes - Mega Man 2! Created in gouache airbrush on illustration board that is affixed to foam board, with an image area of 22.25" x 39.5". There are minor surface scuffs on the lower left next to the fighter jet, a ding with creases and small tear on the lower right edge, color spot on the lower right margin, creases and wear to corners, a tissue overlay taped to left edge and is signed in the bottom right corner of the art. Comes in foam board folder. In Very Good condition.
