The Captain America Project #17: Michael Zeck

The Captain America Project: 20 artists, 20 drawings of Captain America on one page.

#17: Michael Zeck

When I started the Captain America Project in 2010, I knew the page would not be complete without a sketch by Michael Zeck.  His run on Captain America in the early 80’s was my favorite of the title and stood out with his bold artwork and amazing covers.  He rarely made convention appearances so I wasn’t sure the opportunity would come up for a sketch, but I always kept a space open on the page “just in case. ”  Back in June I had the honor of meeting him at Wizard World in New York and he drew this fantastic Cap sketch for me at the show.

A big thanks to Michael and also to Renee Witterstaetter of Eva Ink Artist Group for the opportunity to add this Captain America sketch to the page.

The Captain America Project #8: Herb Trimpe

The Captain America Project: 20 artists, 20 drawings of Captain America on one page.

This week: Herb Trimpe (The Incredible Hulk, The Defenders)

This particular sketch from legendary Marvel artist Herb Trimpe was the last one I commissioned at Wizard World NY in October 2010.

I’ve been a fan of Herb’s work since the 70s.  I wouldn’t be surprised if one of the first comic books I bought as a kid was drawn by Herb.  I consider him an artist whose work defines the art of the Bronze Age.

Almost one half of this project was completed over that two day event.  At this point in time I won’t give away how much of this jam page is complete, but I will say that it’s almost done.
