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”.

Inhuman Pin-ups


Marc Basile treats us yet again with a trio of Inhuman pin-ups. Marvel Masterworks indeed!

Craig writes, “I’m more a writer than an artist, so I took one of my favorite pieces of Jack’s work and … well, rewrote it.” – Click Image to enlarge.

A huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s Birthday celebration, making it our biggest portrait gallery ever. And of course a huge thank you goes out to Jack Kirby for his continuing inspiration. Long live The King!

After a longer than anticipated break Kirby-Vision is back and we’re firing on all cylinders to bring the very best in Kirby inspired art. So let’s get this baby back on the road with a lovely rendition of that flame-haired Inhuman, Medusa, courtesy of regular contributor Tyler Crook.
