Layron writes: “The illustration is of “The Inhumans” which is based on a sketch card I did for Upper Deck’s Marvel Premier trading card series. I gave it a retro look by adding dot screens, textured paper and color tints in Photoshop”.
Marc Basile treats us yet again with a trio of Inhuman pin-ups. Marvel Masterworks indeed!
Many thanks to French artist, Oliver Hudson, for these Kirby cover re-creations. Above, you will find Oliver’s version of Fantastic Four #82 using his own (yet to be published) characters. Below, Oliver provides colours to a Erik Larsen inked Captain America #193 cover. Sterling work I’m sure you’ll agree. You can find more of Oliver’s artwork at his Facebook page, here.
The Inhumans (well some of them at least) courtesy of James Burns.
Way back in January Kirby-Vision featured Loston Wallace‘s black and white commision piece, Thing Collage. Loston has now very kindly forwarded two very different colour treatments of the piece which we present for your viewing pleasue. Below you will find Matt Webb‘s rendition which utilises the sort of colour palette widely used on 1960s comic covers. This is followed by Steve Downer who brings his impressive digital skills to the artwork. Great jobs by both artists we’re sure you’ll agree.
The Thing and a host of Kirby creations adorn this fantastic commission piece (for fellow Kirby-Vision contributor Steve Funnell) courtesy of Loston Wallace.
Brendan Tobin takes on the Inhumans. Originally created for Tim Miner’s 5 Minute Marvels, you can discover the evolution of this piece at Brendan’s Blog, here.
Anthony Castrillo‘s final version of a private commission which was featured here at Kirby-Vision back in February. Hats off to Anthony’s friend Zee who provided the colours.
A legion of Kirby creations feature in this private commission by Brooklyn based artist Anthony Castrillo. Anthony originally trained as a graphic designer before moving into comics in the early ’90’s. He has worked for both Marvel and DC and describes himself as “a full-time Dad, moonlighting as a cartoonist”.

Many thanks to Michael and Evan for these fantastic Kirby inspired Christmas cards. Be sure to take a look at both of their blogs for more great work. You can see the original cover to Fantastic Four #46 by Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, here.
A very merry Christmas and a prosperous New Year to all you Kirby fans out there, Happy Holidays!
(Late on Christmas Eve, Kirby-Vision received this Kirby inspired piece from Chris Haley, taken from the Christmas strip of his webcomic, Let’s Be Friends Again, which we’d like to belatedly add to this festive post).
