Birthday for a King!

Time to celebrate Jack “King” Kirby’s birthday with Wake Up and Draw…and Waffles!  It’s always fun to see a blast of sketches appearing across the internet every August 28th.  The drawings are auctioned off to benefit the Hero Initiative.  Here’s a link to a bunch of the drawings on comicartfans.com


Abraham Lincoln: Age 204 years

It’s true, Lincoln isn’t as old as Yoda, yet.  204 years seems downright youthful in contrast to Yoda’s 800+.  Lincoln_AndrewLoomis01

I imagine Lincoln received a book or two as birthday presents, so I thought it might be appropriate to present this mock-up of our book cover.  The illustrations are taken from the interior except for the central portrait that I based on a photo of Lincoln reading to Tad that has been reproduced frequently.  The cover was designed by Adam Johnson.  Thank you, Adam!


And here’s an extra bonus: The BW lineart of an interior page that features Lincoln and a cameo of his bible, perhaps his most famous possession…after the hat.
