British illustrator Jonathan Edwards made his debut in the influential comic magazine Deadline. Since then has forged a successful career as a commercial illustration and a long standing relationship with The Guardian newspaper providing editorial art. He is also the curator of Draw Serge, an illustrative tribute blog dedicated to the French singer-songwriter Serge Gainsbourg. You can find more of Jonathan’s energetic work at his website and blog.
A big shout-out to all the artists who took the time to contribute to today’s gallery. And of course a huge thank you to Jack Kirby whose inspiration lives on. Long live The King!

As inker/letterer for the majority of Jack’s work throughout the 70’s and 80’s, Mike Royer, is well known to fans of the site. My thanks to Mike for his permission to use this portrait and to Rob Steibel for submitting the commisioned artwork.
KIRBY-VISION would like to send out a huge thank you to all the artists who took the time to contribute to the gallery. Despite looming deadlines and moving houses (and other such excuses) you really pulled out all the stops to pay tribute to Jack’s inspiration.
