Our final post this week from Doug Hazlewood.
Doug writes, “Here is my recreation of the classic Marvel Pin-Up of THE MIGHTY THOR. The original pin-up art is by Jack Kirby and Chic Stone. This was done on 11 x 17 Strathmore Bristol board over printed bluelines – HAND-INKED. I tried to remain pretty faithful intentionally and tightened up the face a little.”
Many thanks to Doug for all of the fabulous work we have featured this week. If you would like to see more then checkout Doug’s website and DeviantArt page.

This week at Kirby-Vision we will be featuring the inking artistry of Doug Hazlewood as he takes on the challenge of inking “The King”. First up, Captain America from Tales of Suspense #59. Doug writes, “I did not ink everything exactly the same and made the bricks less mechanical looking and fiddled with his face some (mainly his eyes). At first they were too George Tuska-looking and I touched them up some more. The original eyes just kind of ‘bug’ me a bit. I love Kirby and Stone and I don’t think this Cap figure was the most ‘Chic’ looking, but it is a cool splash. I didn’t want it to be just a straight recreation. Everything is hand-inked that is black on here.”
“Mr Miracle and Big Barda have the greatest love story in comics, so this it’s my little homage”.
Many thanks to Argentinian artist Mauro Bueno for this heartfelt tribute. You can find more of Mauro’s art at his blog, here.
Doug Hazlewood inks Avengers #12 from original Kirby pencils.
Doug writes, “I just finished this AVENGERS #12 cover recreation. I inked it (everything–lettering, too…nothing is pasted on) over bluelines of the cover art. I did want to keep some things very faithful to the original, but not just trace every line. I adore Kirby and Stone and this was inked on 11 x 17 Strathmore Bristol board. I’ve always felt that the big piece of rock with Wasp under it must have been retouched at the offices after Chic inked it. Maybe they wanted her to show up more. I rendered it in a different fashion, as the printed cover just looks ‘fiddled with’ there.”
Rounding-up a week of Steve Coates tribute art with this gallery featuring The Hulk, two Demons and a couple of special guests.
Our third gallery this week from Steve Coates aptly features a trio of techniques featuring the not so “Jolly Green” himself.

“It is very difficult to draw like Jack, but his design and dynamic presentation is amazing.”
