Rob’s source material for his portrait comes from an unpublished Machine Man page (click to enlarge). Rob writes, “The character in the 3rd panel is Dr. Peter Spalding. I thought he looked a little like Jack with his pipe so I added inks.”

    Hello,

    My name is Luís Araújo. I´m 25 years old and I´m from Portugal. And I come here to make a tribute to the great one, the powerfull, the man, and the king, Jack Kirby. Is a beautiful day here in Portugal, with sun and clean sky. Is a beautiful day to celebrate the life and the work of a man that is a big influence for many people, for me too, in a special way. Because Jack Kirby was a major force that gave the inspiration, and that literally with the hands that he drew, gave to me a dream, a tip to make road to reach my goal. He was and still is one of greatest motivations in my life. Happy Birthday Mr. Jack Kirby, and thank you for all work and soul that gave us.

    God bless you.

    Peace
