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.
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.
Kirby-Vision regular Jay Piscopo treats us to gallery of rogues and heroes.
Three sensational Kirby heroes from the brush of Dan McDaid.
Two great pieces for you today courtesy of Tampa Bay based artist Elliot Fernandez. Elliot writes – “When I was six years old, I inherited a collection of comics from some relatives that included much of Jack Kirby’s early works. However, I didn’t really understand Kirby’s contribution to the art world until about ten years or so ago. As I continued to grow in my appreciation of the craft involved in comic creation, it became plain to me that Kirby was not only the master, but was years ahead of his time. His work as an artist and storyteller has had a fundamental impact on my own work as well as my life and my world view.”
Today’s Kirby-goodness comes courtesy of North Carolina based artist, Loston Wallace. First up there’s the Green Goliath himself, which features a mighty colouring job by Steve Downer, followed by a host of sketch-book workouts featuring some favorite grotesques from Tales to Astonish/of Suspense.
