Abstract Comics Drawing Jack Kirby

Abstraction, just flat design is easy, don’t make everything overlap, representational stuff is simpler, compile some reference , draw what you see, adding overlaps to abstraction, just screws my brain up. Sometimes you get a shape and it seems right, the combination of shape implied space and three dimensionality but not doing representation and I’m happy.

Now if I can just repeat it a hundred times. Comics, harder then every other art form.

Hi Mark, I hope this blog isn’t abandoned. I just wanted to say I picked up the issues of Excalibur you drew back in the early 90’s and really dig your art. It’d be great to see you drawing a modern book, good luck with your future endeavors!
