More Jack Kirby Creations to Draw

The Jack Kirby Tribute book is very close to getting 100 artists to draw 100 Kirby creations. More info here.

I’m thinking the last few characters are not grabbing anyone. So I’m jumped back into the Kirby Cosmic Creation pool and pulled out these gems.

There are only nine slots left for artists and you have your choice of these characters to draw for the tribute book.

Ajax


Angry Charlie


Balder


Bombast


Captain 3-D


Captain Glory


Captain Victory


Crystal


Destroyer Duck


Director Chusang


Fourth Sleeper


Glorious Godfrey


Goom


Kalibak


Mangog


Mantis


Metron





Overlord


Recorder


Sersi

What Comics Should I Read?

How to Start Reading Comic Books


Often, I'm asked for suggestions on what comics to read from people who want to get started in this hobby/fandom/obsession.

I've given them my list of must reads. I just found a site dedicated to helping newbies in a much more through way.

It's called

How to Love Comics




I highly suggest this to people just starting out and you should pass this along to other friends you know.

100 Artists Drawing 100 Jack Kirby Creations

Jack Kirby Centennial


Please help me spread the word about tribute book to Jack Kirby to celebrate his centennial. 100 artists drawing 100 Kirby creations.

You can find more info at this link http://tinyurl.com/100artistskirby 

Only 9 more slots to be filled.
Agent Axis
Deep Six (DC Comics, entire team)
Impossible Man
It! The Living Colossus
Gabe Jones
Manhunter
Oberon (comics)
Sky Masters (entire team)
Young Allies (Marvel Comics, entire original team)

Now if none of these float your boat, then Kirby has created thousands of characters beyond the 100 I chose. You can replace these last few with any that are not already  taken.

Or combine characters. For instance, you want to draw the Fantastic Four (which is already taken) then choose one of their enemies fighting the team or one of the members.

Jeff Koons and Copying

How Jeff Koons, 8 Puppies and a Lawsuit Changed Artists’ Right to Copy

In 1988, Jeff Koons unveiled his “Banality” series. The exhibitions consisted of a series of porcelain and wooden sculptures based on photographs and other archetypal objects.

Boy was he sued!

For the art world, the cases produced by the “Banality” shows resulted in judgements that have helped to define when artists can and cannot use the work of others for their own pieces, making a lasting impact on copyright law.
