Contribute to Jack’s 96th Birthday Portrait Gallery

Hey folks, just a reminder that there’s just a week left for you to submit artwork to our Birthday Portrait Gallery in celebration Jack’s 96th birthday on Wednesday 28th August. We will need to receive your artwork by Sunday 25th August for inclusion in the gallery. Please send your portraits to the usual address, marking your emails ‘Kirby Portrait’. 

Asgard Meets the Fourth World 2

Many thanks to Travis Ellisor for sharing the latest commissioned artwork from his ComicArtsFans gallery, Asgard Meets the Fourth World. Hogun vs. Mantis by Phil Hester  Hela vs. Mister Miracle by Cory Smith

A Call for Submissions

The content of Kirby-Vision roughly breaks down to around 40% submitted artwork and 60% artwork sourced, by myself, from creator blogs and artist community websites such as DeviantArt and Flickr. When the latter is the case I have made it a policy to contact artists and request permission to feature their work at the blog. It has been a joy corresponding with all of the talented people featured here over the past 3 years, but unfortunately various commitments have removed the free time needed to curate the blog in this fashion. Therefore, from now on Kirby-Vision will only feature submitted artwork.

As a result of this decision you may find that new posts appear on a less regular basis and so I urge you all to add the blog to your RSS feeds so that you can catch any new posts when they appear.

If you are reading this and would like to submit a Kirby inspired piece to the blog, you can send your scans, photos etc., to this address. The intention 0f Kirby-Vision has always been to promote artists alongside their work so I would like to encourage you, if you would like to contribute, to add a few words about yourself along with any relevant links to blogs, websites etc. with your email. I will endeavor to get back to you as soon as I can as to when your artwork will be featured.

Thank you all for your patience,

Jason Garrattley

Marvel Two-in-One #74

A three pronged homage here, The Thing and Puppetmaster battle the Island of Mis-fit Toys (from the Rankin/Bass production, Rudolph the Red Nosed Reindeer) in a re-creation of Frank Springer‘s cover for Marvel Two-in-One #74. Penciled and inked by Jeff Potter and colored by Wheeler Hall, it’s a perfect reminder that the holiday season is just around the corner. You can find more of Jeff’s art at his blog and check out Wheeler’s OK-Panic blog, a showcase for upcoming artists.
