Forum, I saw this image on Pinterest of a sketch done by John Buscema. One, it is just awesome to me. I love it. Two - it sparked the idea of Image of the Week. So please post any artistic image, one per week, that really hits you. Thank You. I look forward to seeing what art resonates with you each week.

I don't know the history of this image, but what I really like about it, is my perception that this was a impulsive moment and John had to get it down on paper. Looks like he drew this on the back of some comic board, as he was known to often do. I love the line work!

Save

Inked by Ernie Chan for Savage Sword of Conan. For a subscription ad, I think.

I'll play. Found this image apparently done by Kirby for an aborted Thor animated tv show. I just love the look of the serpent. One of the notes says "Get Jack to put Thor in". Maybe by Stan?

Brian Peck will probably know for sure, but that Buscema piece is drawn on the back of a page of original art, so it may not have been for publication at all. There are some real gems lurking on the backs of a lot of John Buscema's originals.

Maybe so but someone at Marvel had Chan ink it and then they published it. 

Stanley Pitt drawing Flash Gordon. Love this one.

In that Ploog illustration, I especially like Gimli.

From 2000AD a page by Brian Bolland from the collection of Joseph Melchior on comicartfans.com.



Here's a close up showing the talented Mr Bolland's linework which gets lost translated to a smaller image size above:


wow.
