Rob Schamberger, renowned wrestling artist and painter of champions, is headed to Los Angeles to participate in the festivities leading to SummerSlam, WWE’s biggest summer event.
Starting on Aug. 15, Schamberger will paint live outside the panel discussions at the Nokia Theatre LA Live.
His subject of choice? None other than the legendary Stone Cold Steve Austin, one of several featured panelists.
Wrestling fans are encouraged to stop by the theater from Aug. 15-17 to see Schamberger in action, free. Several of Schamberger’s prints, including a limited edition SummerSlam 2014 print, will be on sale at various merchandise areas inside the theater.
Never miss a local story.
For Schamberger, the chance to work at SummerSlam represents an opportunity for continued partnership with WWE, not to mention a chance to paint in one of the world’s most celebrated cities.
“It’s an absolute pleasure to be doing live art in Los Angeles for the SummerSlam Confidential Panels,” Schamberger said in a release. “LA is known as one of the art capitals of the world, and WWE is known for some of the best fans in the world. I’m doubly excited to paint my Stone Cold Steve Austin portrait in front of both.”
If that combination wasn’t enough to make any artist anxious, the stakes got even higher when the Texas Rattlesnake himself jokingly tweeted a threat:
“And if you screw this thing up, you’re gonna get your ass a Stone Cold Stunner.”
