Comic Book Original Art Collection: Elektra, by Bill Sienkiewicz

in comics •  last year  (edited)

Time enough for a quick write-up, wanted to share this li’l beauty. I usually don’t go for trading card sketch art; well, when adding a name like Sienkiewicz to the collection, beggars can’t be choosers!

His Elektra and Moon Knight work is especially admired in the OA community. I love his rendition here... Radiohead’s OK Computer album cover comes to mind, with the use of whites.

Abstract illustration styles in comics often come at the cost of raw sex appeal. Not so with Sienkiewicz.

What a cool little card a great art. I love Sienkiewicz, my number one favorite. Missed him at a convention by like an hour or something one time. Never met him, have no original art or anything signed even. I'm not in a rush but I do wish to see him before I die.

He makes tiny panels in a comic something I want to hang on my wall. Example is your post here with this trading card, so damn cool.

I also missed him at a convention where he was supposed to show up... and thanks, good bro! I realized he had me when I could spell out his name at will without looking it up, LOL.

There is so much truth to this statement you don't even know.

Sienkiewicz has the strange ability to seem loose and scribbly yet precise at the same time. (have you see his book "stray toasters?) That card is amazing.

You put it well...! It's very much the drunken master style of comics. :D And nope, I haven’t yet.
