Friday 28th August marks the 98th anniversary of the birth of Jack Kirby. To celebrate
the occasion, Kirby-Vision would like to invite all of our readers to contribute to our annual
Birthday Portrait Gallery.
As you can see from our previous galleries – 2014, 2013, 2012, 2011, 2010 and 2009 – there’s a lot of love out there for ‘The King of Comics’ and everyone who has contributed in the past has excelled themselves with their tributes.
If you would like to contribute to this years’ gallery please send your artwork to the usual
address. The deadline for submissions is Wednesday 26th August and please mark your emails ‘Kirby Portrait Gallery’.

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”.
