Today marks the 96th anniversary of Jack Kirby’s birth and to celebrate KIRBY-VISION proudly presents our annual portrait gallery in honour of ‘The King of Comics’.
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.
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!
Brisbane based artist Paul Mason is the writer/artist of The Solider Legacy, the saga of a World War II Superhero which doff’s the hat to Kirby’s comics of the 1940’s and 1960’s. Here he presents two recent pieces, Marvel 1962 from the 43rd Comic-Con Souvenir book and DC New 52 Superman vs. OMAC. You can find more of Paul’s work at his blog and DeviantArt gallery.
Many thanks to Elliot Fernandez for this portrait of the DC New 52 version of Buddy Blank’s alter-ego, OMAC.
Luis Chichón describes this OMAC piece as “an experiment to find which is more powerful, the shapes created by the mass of colour or the lines that define those shapes”.
