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
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.
