Kirby-Vision would like to wish each and everyone of our readers the very best for the holiday season. To celebrate, and to take us into the new year, we’d like to present a mini-gallery of Kirby inspired creations for your enjoyment. Happy Holidays folks!

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”.
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.
For an extra visual treat check out Derek’s Flickr collection of 165 Kirby Double-page spreads.
Also joining in the Birthday celebrations with non-portrait pieces:
And finally, Italian Renato Stevanato gifted not one but five portraits which will form part of his own celebratory post at his blog, cartoonstherapy.
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!
The Inhumans (well some of them at least) courtesy of James Burns.
Brendan Tobin takes on the Inhumans. Originally created for Tim Miner’s 5 Minute Marvels, you can discover the evolution of this piece at Brendan’s Blog, here.
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.
