Happy Birthday Jack Kirby! Process & Inspiration
Join me as I celebrate what would have been the 106th Birthday of Jack Kirby, the King of Comics. Jack's life story is the life story of the American comic from the Golden Age of the 40’s to the Image Revolution of the 90’s. It is a story of triumphs and tragedies of one of the most influential artists in American comics of the 20th Century. Influences felt even today with last 20 years of superhero movies and television.
To celebrate the work of this artistic great and to help hone my skills, on my journey as a cartoonist, I created this piece. Titled “Jack Kirby Gods and Monsters”, I composed it of penciled pieces by Jack Kirby scanned from the internet and collated together into a mural. I digitally finished it in Adobe Fresco using G-Pen Vector Brush and KirbyKrackle brush.
Thanks to all of those who have liked the work so far and welcome to any new readers.
