Recognizing the draw that BioShock's distinctive atmosphere and character designs has on artists, 2K Games announced its BioShock 2 artist series, a collection of works from several artists inspired by the underwater city of Rapture and its inhabitants. 2K will show off the pieces in the coming months.

The first revealed painting is "The Sisters" (completed version below) by Jhonen Vasquez, creator of Invader Zim and Johnny the Homicidal Maniac. Vasquez posted a detailed article on the piece's creation with early sketches, and plans to sign a limited edition of 500 prints at the BioShock 2 booth in this weekend's San Diego Comic-Con.
