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.

Rob’s source material for his portrait comes from an unpublished Machine Man page (click to enlarge). Rob writes, “The character in the 3rd panel is Dr. Peter Spalding. I thought he looked a little like Jack with his pipe so I added inks.”
A huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s Birthday celebration. And of course a huge thank you to Jack Kirby for his continuing inspiration. Long live The King!
Way back in January Kirby-Vision featured Loston Wallace‘s black and white commision piece, Thing Collage. Loston has now very kindly forwarded two very different colour treatments of the piece which we present for your viewing pleasue. Below you will find Matt Webb‘s rendition which utilises the sort of colour palette widely used on 1960s comic covers. This is followed by Steve Downer who brings his impressive digital skills to the artwork. Great jobs by both artists we’re sure you’ll agree.
Just a small selection of the Kirby character sketchcards that New York based artist Cory Smith has been posting over at his Twitpic gallery. Cory took up a daily sketch challenge in June of last year and has notched up an impressive 168 cards so far. The full gallery, as it stands, can be found here and you can find more of cory’s work at his blog and DeviantArt page.
A big Kirby-Vision thanks goes out to Travis Ellisor for the link to Cory’s Gallery.
