As I write this, it is the perfect day for me to go outside and rake the leaves in my yard. But, I've remembered Halloween is only a few days away. I also remembered that my friend Anna Maria Cool had sent me a jpeg of a sweet convention sketch she had done of Vampirella. Finally, I remembered that I enjoy doing artwork more than raking leaves, so I inked and colored Anna's art. Happy Halloweeen!
I personally don't know Robert Bensam, but he made a comment on a recent post that I couldn't ignore. I rarely take requests, but I felt a gauntlet hit my foot.
It sounded really fun to animate some Kirby Tech! A lot of my blog work is sincere adoration to classic comics, and this is one of them. I started with a cropped splash page from Fantastic Four #64. I thought about removing the dialog, but it's so classic Stan Lee/Jack Kirby, it had to stay.
It makes you wish Disney would make a straight-up Kirby-inspired FF CG movie, doesn't it?
