Jack Kirby Canines

kirby dogs

Drawing by the King saved from the trash by Jim Woodring. Sort of ancient and modern at the same time. This kind of journeyman-drawing-transcending-its-medium will disappear in the coming Pixar Bloatero era (see post on the use of line vs Ratatouille), although I refuse to get nostalgic about the inherent value of pushing a pencil across paper. Full size here.

Here's a drawing of Woodring's (and its later, buff version) and a good Vermeer joke by Justin Green (all images from Woodring's blog).
