Tom Kelly shares his contribution to Hero Initiative‘s recent “Wake Up and Draw” event. On August 28th, 40 plus artists marked the occasion of Jack Kirby’s 96th birthday with morning warm up sketches. These one-off pieces are to be auctioned later in the year and have been collected in a special gallery at ComicArtFans.
Tom’s Thor vs. Darkseid piece was created on “6×10 Bristol Board using tech pens, black marker, brush and ink, plus a tooth-brush for the spatter effect”.

Happy Birthday Jack!
