Xena - Art and Images
Art & Images of Xena: Warrior Princess
Rittenhouse Archives - Oct 2004
Rittenhouse Archives is proud to present to collectors the next
installment of our exciting Xena trading card series, Art
and Images of Xena: Warrior Princess.
The 72 card base set will feature Xena: The Warrior Princess and Gabrielle: The Battling
Bard along with a bevy of other women and warriors displayed in a unique artistic format
printed on canvas style paper.
Continuing the theme of art in this series, collectors will find artwork from three
different artists. Artists Rebekah Lynn and Patricia Parker, both Xena enthusiasts
themselves, have lent their stunning artwork to this series. Their artwork truly captures
the danger and passion of the show. Artist Douglas Shuler will be creating nine new pieces
of artwork exclusively for this series that when put together form one large image. His
artwork will be found exclusively in the International boxes, while the North American
boxes will contain the artwork by Rebekah Lynn.
Probably the most exciting pieces of artwork in this series will be those created by
series co-star Renee O'Connor. We
all know that Renee can act, but did you know that she can draw as well? Renee has drawn 9
new pieces of artwork of her friends from the show including Lucy Lawless as Xena, Kevin
Smith as Ares, Alexandra Tydings as Aphrodite, Ted Raimi as Joxer as well as self-portrait
of herself as Gabrielle.
Rittenhouse Archives has created six new Xena
Gallerycards, featuring the Warrior Princess herself. These cards will be found one in
every other box. Collectors should also be on the lookout for five unique Women and Warriors cards. Each card is printed on plastic and
numbered to 500.
For the first time in a Xena trading card set, Rittenhouse Archives presents collectors
with hand-drawn sketch cards! Artists include Warren Martineck, John Czop, Cris Bolson,
Sean Pence, Emir Ribeiro, Patrick Hamill, Eduardo Pansica, Joe Corroney, Scott Rosema,
Steven Miller, Patricia Parker and Pablo Raimondi. Fans can expect to find their sketches
of their favorite characters including Xena, Gabrielle, Joxer, Argo, Ares, Callisto,
Aphrodite, Hercules, Borias and others highly detailed in pencil, ink and color!
Finally, for those collectors looking to store their cards, Rittenhouse Archives has also
produced a new custom Xena trading card album. Each album comes with 15 9-pocket plastic
pages, a exclusive promotional card and an exclusive autograph card from Alison Wall as
