Invader Zim Creator Kicks Off BioShock 2 Artist Series

BOOM widget 82963 Invader Zim and JTHM creator Jhonen Vasquez marks the first participant in a new series of BioShock-themed art organized by developer 2K Games.

"We asked several uniquely different artists to create a piece of art that represented their Rapture to celebrate the profound effect the city's beauty has on the BioShock community," said 2K community manager Elizabeth Tobey.

The first piece, Vasquez's "The Sisters" (see above), debuted online today. Additional art will be released over the coming months.

"A few months back, 2K Games asked if I'd do a print for BioShock 2, the sequel to one of my favorite games of all time, so naturally I said 'HELL NO, YOU WIFE-SWAPPING FREAKS!'" writes Vasquez on the BioShock blog. "They repeated their offer, stating again just who they were and I realized my mistake, promptly apologizing for the misunderstanding and accepted gladly."
