Kirby Tribute Art, From Loston Wallace

Here’s a great piece of Kirby Tribute art sent in by Loston Wallace. Great work and thanks for sending this in.

Rob,

I really love the Kirby Dynamics blog! I grew up reading Jack Kirby comics, and the older I get, the more I realize just how unique and special Jack Kirby truly was.  He redefined the sequential storytelling in comics, giving us exciting 3-D layouts filled with action and movement. When I think of super hero comics in particular, Kirby’s dynamic energy is what comes to mind. I love seeing Kirby pages on your blog, and I enjoy the way you break things down, analyzing the imagery!  A treat for the Kirby fan!

Recently I completed an illustration for a friend of mine who loves Ben Grimm, the ever lovin’ blue-eyed Thing! I drew it in a style that’s a tip of the hat to Jack Kirby and Joe Sinnott, so I thought you might enjoy seeing it.  I hope you enjoy it, Rob!
