Inviting 100 Artists to Draw 100 Kirby Characters to Celebrate 100th Anniversary

In this 100th year celebration of Jack Kirby, how about we get a hundred artists to draw 100 characters created by The King; whom we all draw inspiration from in our comicbook art. One hundred characters or teams have been carefully selected to represent all periods from The King’s career. Digital files will be submitted at the proportional size of 6.625“ x 10.25“ and will be 300 dpi. One character per artist. We then put it together as a plain vanilla .CBR and an interactive PDF with everyone getting the credit they deserve The layout of the issue will be roughly: 1. Cover 2. A short text piece about Kirby 3. Bio about Kirby. 4. The pin-ups or sequential pages created by the 100 artists. However, you want to pay tribute to him based on the character selected. 5. Credit pages with each artist providing name or username, country, favorite Kirby issue, your web-site link. 6. Back cover This will not be printed or sold. It is strictly for download by the participating artists and whoever has the link. Due date to submit completed art is May 31st. Art can be in color or black & white. Do what you are best at; drawing or painting. Completed book and links to be provided on July 30th.

Extended Deadline:

  • Submit art by Sep 15th
Okay, lets celebrate!

Start by putting in your bid for the character you want to draw in the comments below. Indicate your request by name. I've added some alternative choices to the list that you can find here.

*Note: Artists should use Kirby's designs of the characters, not their own redesigns or that of any artists who drew the characters after Kirby. The original post will be updated as slots are filled by artists.
