Now that Big Funny has made its debut, I'll get back to posting more of my work, as well as various graphics and assorted "cool stuff" that I find worth sharing. Today I'm bringing you a few examples of my inks over lightboxed Jack Kirby pencils from Jack's "Heroes and Villains" sketchbook.
These were initially done as an inking exercise -- but I ended up using them in a birthday greeting to Jack published in a San Diego ComicCon convention book. Later, just for the heck of it, I colored them. The originals were sold at auction in a 9-11 benefit at another convention.
I recently discovered these scans which I hadn't recalled making. I'm glad I found them -- a nice surprise for me -- and I hope you enjoy them, too. The experience of inking Kirby's pencils is such a pleasure for me -- I wish I'd been able to have really worked on something with him.
