Two great pieces for you today courtesy of Tampa Bay based artist Elliot Fernandez. Elliot writes – “When I was six years old, I inherited a collection of comics from some relatives that included much of Jack Kirby’s early works. However, I didn’t really understand Kirby’s contribution to the art world until about ten years or so ago. As I continued to grow in my appreciation of the craft involved in comic creation, it became plain to me that Kirby was not only the master, but was years ahead of his time. His work as an artist and storyteller has had a fundamental impact on my own work as well as my life and my world view.”
Many thanks to Travis Ellisor for sharing just some of the Kirby related commissions he has collected under the banner of “Asgard Meets the Forth World.”
