We missed doing Wolfpack Wednesday yesterday so we are doing it today and we’ll extend comments through Friday at 11:59pm est.

Today we are giving away a print of a painting (see left) done by Alex Meraz entitled Faith that Alex signed at the Official Twilight Convention in Indianapolis.

So check out Alex’s website to see the many forms of the arts that Alex participates in and tell us which is your favorite of Alex’s many art forms and why, and we’ll pick a random winner from the comments.

Also look for us at the Official Twilight convention in Toronto this weekend!


  1. I really love his paintings. He’s just overall amazing, that man is! πŸ™‚ I love the print of him with the wolf.

  2. I love his website! The sketches are amazing!

  3. One of your best giveaways. Thanks for doing this, his work is quite good and it’s nice he will get extra exposure via your site.

  4. Wow! It’s all incredible. I have to say the sketch is my fave. It’s amazing he finds the time to explore all of his talents.

  5. Andrea D says:

    Wow, his website is unlike any other I have seen. I loved that he included his first drawing of Snoopy! How cute! My favorite by far is the print you are giving away. I LOVE his use of color in this.

  6. Angela Graves says:

    “which is your favorite of Alex’s many art forms and why” – Alex’s Snoopy drawing. I just made me smile when I saw it. All of his work is very good. Thanks for sharing.

  7. Alex is so talented! My favorite art form is his awesome dancing skills. He knows breakdancing, native dancing and martial arts. He so well rounded. All he needs is a bit of jazz and ballet and hes good to go! hahaha! Another reason why, is cause im a dancer myself. He totally inspires me.

  8. that painting is absolutely beautiful. What a talented guy!

  9. MichelleB says:

    Alex Meraz is an incredible artist. His sketches are awesome. I’ve never seen a more beautiful self-portrait than the one on his site. It’s an incredible thing watching him dance, as well. “Faith” is a beautiful painting. It’s rare to find someone who is so well versed in various artistic media. Bonus that he’s totally gorgeous πŸ™‚

    Alex has skill!!!!

  11. Heather Peace says:

    This one ‘faith’ is my favorite I first saw it when I attended the convention in boston a year and a half ago someone I loved very much was killed in afghanistan and someone snet me the quote “just when the caterpillar thought his life was over he became a butterfly” I always thought of the quote as me and as soon as I saw thsi print it took my breath away and immediately reminded me of this. When I got home I looked up his print on the website and saw the title and quote underneath needless to say I am in love with the painting!

  12. This sketch is amazing!! I’ve looked at his website and it’s great to see he has so many other talents as well. I’ve done some sketching and painting but nothing of mine ever comes out this well! Go Alex!

  13. Lisa Marie Zitek says:

    I love Alex’s dance’s true body art.
    His movements can depict may emotions. And it is how he met his lovely wife.

  14. How beautiful, its magic….

  15. I love the paintings. I like boys, hwo can paint and/or play music, I don’t think he play music, but his paintings i amazing, so that’s good enought.
    He’s a very good actor too, especially in new moon πŸ™‚

    (sorry about grammatical and spelling fails, but i’m not amarican)

  16. I think Alex is one of the most talented multimedia artists out there. I love his watercolors, especially the woman, curled up with the butterfly coming out of her. And the old lady with the wrinkles, that all tell a story, according to his description.And the sketches. The dancing. How can one choose from so much talent?

  17. The picture of the old lady is my favorite. The image looks so much like my grandmother who has passed away that when I first saw the image, it startled me.

    Being an artist you want to entertain & to cause some kind of emotional connection. Alex’s artwork does that for me as it shows images that are prominent in our Mexican culture.

    I have got “The Faith”. Bought in Rome.
    Now, I’m waiting to have it signed (hopefully in Bonn)

  19. His blend of color and what I assume to be iconography of his culture is simply astounding. I visited his website the first time an announcement was posted on this website. His artwork is a blend of beauty and sorrow or anger or wisdow, depending on which piece is being admired. I can only hope to grasp some tiny bit of the infinite amount of meaning each piece holds.
    As an artist Alex Meraz is innovative, passionate, creative, and remarkable. And as a person, he seems to bridge two worlds, between the modern times and those as ancient as the world itself, and that duplicity is evident throughout his art, no matter what form it takes.
    I truly do believe that he isn’t valued or recognized enough for his tremendous talent and ability. In the future I hope this will change and more people will come to embrace him.

    • Ah, in all my writing I forgot to add what was my favorite, and that is his paintings, all of them, every single one.

  20. Ronda Snyder says:

    I am mostly intrigued by his paintings. I love that much of Alex’s art is so laden with fantasy yet still posesses a quality that keeps it real and grounded. There is a wonderful depth about each piece and such a vividness in color and imagination. Fantastic!

  21. The Faith is my fav.

  22. Awww i luv this painting πŸ˜€ it sooo cute and pretty it looks like a sad fairy πŸ™ i would print this on a shirt 2 wear. Alex is a very talented man and hot men who plays my fav wolf πŸ˜€

  23. WOW! I never realized how talented he was in so many aspects of the art world! Its very hard to pick just one! His drawings/paintings are amazing! I love his acting, and I’ve always been a huge dance fan, so it’s very hard for me to pick one. I honestly don’t know how you could pick one, he is truly talented in every aspect of his life!

  24. Courtney says:

    His paintings…though his pencil sketching are amazing as well!!! :]

  25. Definitely the paintings are my favorite. I assume they are water color paintings. I’m not an artsy person so I’m not sure. But I love the regular use of butterflies as a theme. The colors are all so wonderful and vibrant. Even the drawings are interesting in that there are so many hidden pictures inside the main picture.

    • I believe they are oil paintings…

      • Thanks because I have no clue, I’m only gifted in the creativity department. I haven’t taken art since 7th grade and we only ever did pastels and water color. I also once made a toilet out of styrofoam. It was pretty cool.

  26. ippisclj says:

    I love his sketchings too! They are gorgeous!

  27. Wow… that IS an amazing painting. He’s a really talented person (:

  28. That is an actual painting people NOT a sketch. I almost bought a lithograph of it at Boscon. Bought the wolf self portrait instead and he signed it “All my love, Alex”. *sigh*

  29. I can’t choose they are all wonderful! It’s a great give away πŸ˜€

  30. April A says:

    So pretty! The colors are amazing.

  31. Briana B says:

    Alex is a very gifted all around artist. His paintings & sketches are amazing he honestly paints the world as he sees it & it tells a complete story all on its own & when he describes what inspires his art work it makes that story come more alive. It really takes my breath away seeing his artwork.

  32. I of course enjoy Alex’s acting πŸ™‚ Wolf pack all the way πŸ™‚ But I LOVE this picture. It’s so beautiful. I would love to hang it in my daughter’s room. Her name is Faith πŸ™‚

  33. I love the painting with the girl,the gun and the roses,and the photo in the sand.He is awsome and i was blown away by his talent

  34. I love the painting that you post but i love more that one with a butterfly at the left of a face with a hand covering the mouth. I think that painting is the one which transmits more intensity than the others.

  35. Surferchick says:

    Amazing! Alex is an intriguing, multitalented artist.

  36. Alex’s paintings are incredible. My 2 favorites are the fairy and the woman’s skeleton, gun,and roses. All of his paintings seem to show beauty in every subject. He made the elderly, who some would say have lost their beauty, beautiful. And their eyes told of the experiences they’ve seen and have yet to see. They are absolutely incredible. I would’ve never guessed that man had so much beauty inside him.

  37. Olivia R. says:

    I absolutely love art and I believe Alex is very talented. Art is an expression, so it’s hard for me to find art that isn’t beautiful. Just because I don’t like a certain painting, doesn’t mean it doesn’t have significant meaning to another.


    I really love his work. I’ve seen a few on, but never made it over to his actual website. I’m so glad I did now. His work is truly beautiful and touching. My favorite I think is this one, Faith. There is so much room for interpretation. I love all of them, but this really stands out to me. I also love the octopus on the website!!!
    Like I need one more thing to love about Alex. πŸ˜‰

    Wow, that is really beautiful! His whole website is fabulous. He’s always been my favorite of the wolfpack.

  40. Beautiful! This would be wonderful in my Twi Collection. Great contest!

  41. I love his paintings. He is for sure not afraid of color and you can see that. I’ve never tried painting (only graphite sketches)but would love to one day produce something as good as his work.

  42. oooh good job with the watercolor

  43. Missy Janelle says:

    I love the colors in the wing and how it goes from warm colors to the cooler colors on the outer parts. Quite an awesome work of art. He has great talent.

  44. My favorite painting of Alex’s is the one of him and the wolf. That is my favorite painting.

  45. the paintings are wonderful, so they’re my favorite!! but as a visual artist myself, i’m a little biased. πŸ™‚

  46. Alyssa D. says:

    Everything is really awesome! I like his paintings a lot.

  47. I love his acting and how much depth and thought he puts into it. He’s a great Paul and can’t wait to see his other movies when they come out.

  48. Alex’s painting and drawings are amazing!!! I would be over the moon if I got the chance to hang up one of his master pieces in my room!!!

  49. His dancing is incredible!!! I love dance and anyone that can move, especially those that have so much power, yet be so graceful and can defy gravity are just amazing in my book. Alex is just sooo talented and that’s why I love him!!!

  50. Alex is quite talented. He painted how I feel right now. I like “FAITH”. Not only do I love butterflies but sometimes butterflies are a symbol of growth ar change. I need to make a change in my life right now and the only way you can do that is with a little bit of faith. He truly captures this with this painting. I feel too shy or not good enough, but there’s this beautifuly painted waiting for me to take hold of it.I need this.
