2004 Arnold Schwarzenegger Montage Limited Edition Signed Print by Nick Shotwell
Artist: Nick Shotwell
Condition: Near mint condition print in fair condition frame
First edition vintage collectable
This limited edition signed print of Arnold Schwarzenegger is drawn by illustrator Nick Shotwell. The story reads like a fairytale, but it’s true, and it goes like this. Schwarzenegger was at a prominent bodybuilding and sports event in Columbus, Ohio. Artist Nick Shotwell attended the event and brought along a montage of portraits he had drawn of his idol, hoping Schwarzenegger would autograph it. Somehow, he managed to get backstage, and he stationed himself beside Schwarzenegger’s waiting limousine.
Not only did he get an autograph, but he got a call from Schwarzenegger’s secretary a week later asking if he could create some more artwork for him. “It was amazing,” recalls Shotwell. “He was my number-one idol and it meant a lot to me that he thought I was a talented artist. Had I not met him, I don’t know if I would have had the confidence to believe I could do art for a living and become a medical animator.”
The print measures 18 1/4″ x 24 1/4″ and is in near mint condition. It comes in a basic black metal frame with plexiglas that has some signs of age, including a few dings and scratches. Would look best re-framed but the current one has helped protect the artwork.
Photos are of actual item. Climate controlled storage and minimally handled. Sold as is. Only one available.
