Today marks the 98th anniversary of the birth of Jack Kirby.
Here's my contribution to this years' Birthday portrait gallery at Kirby-Vision.

About time I got round to posting some new sketchbook pages instead of letting them fester unseen. These are from an untitled project that's been hanging about for a few weeks in the hope of some narrative. Plenty of characters to design so expect a livelier posting regime to follow.

I'm a little embarrassed that last years Kirby portrait for KIRBY-VISION is only three posts further down the page. I'll be addressing this flagrant blog neglect in the coming months with new 'Drunk Beatles' work. Until then, HAPPY 97th BIRTHDAY, MR. KIRBY!

Hoping to get some regular posts up over the next few months as the Drunk Beatles project starts to move towards finished artwork. In the meantime here's something I drew last December for the office Secret Santa (the rule being no names on pressies just drawings, then you guess which is yours).

I have a tendency to draw quite small when character sketching. So in an effort to open things up a little I've been drawing to the full height of the page (14cm). The end result is a lot more satisfying as extra time was needed for the structure of the bodies. I did find though that once scanned, the carbon 'inks' did not render as strong as my smaller drawings and had to be touched up in Photoshop.
