Happy birthday, Jack "King" Kirby!

This entry was taken from a 1980 NCS Album. Jack Kirby would have been 90 years old today. I'm guessing his influence on storytelling will last for a thousand years. Maybe longer.

Fire in the Big Top...

With or without stars? I can't decide.

Film sketching...

Sometimes I like to watch a film and sketch the characters.

This final "cops" sketch is of Sgt. Gannon of the 76th Precinct in Red Hook, Brooklyn, where I grew up. This guy fired a few shots at me and my friends one night in the late '60s. We noticed he was drunk as he tripped out of his squad car in an effort to chase us off a street corner and weren't about to wait until he approached us. So we ran away and he gave chase, firing his revolver and cursing us as we made our escape. If he had better aim that night he would have been the last cop I ever saw, so I think it's appropriate for a memory sketch of his image to close this series.
