Flame On!

 Jeff Davidson is an amateur artist based in North Carolina, here’s what he has to say about his musical tribute to the King of Comics:

“I used to play the song with my band The Earthtones way back in 2004. I recorded the song on my computer, and since my band had broken up, I had to use a loop track for the drum parts, but I recorded everything else, vocals, bass and guitar. I eventually got the idea to make a “video” for it by drawing a series of pictures on 4×6 index cards. While illustrating the video, I dived deep into Kirby era FF and in the process became a HUGE Kirby fan. Studying Kirby’s style has helped me to embrace my own style, and helped me to be true to myself as an artist. I don’t believe there should be a difference between fine art and illustration, especially when the artist is expressing deep personal thoughts and feelings, like Jack Kirby certainly did. I am one of those crazy guys that think Kirby’s artwork should hang in museums right along side other great abstract and modern artists that are generally accepted to be “fine art”.”
