Something From Ian Cairn's Sketchbook...

Last week, I attended a memorial service for my friend Ian Cairns. Not only was he a sweet, lovely guy, he was also an incredibly talented artist who knew more about comic art than I could ever hope to learn in my lifetime. He was a fan and student of the greats of the medium: Kirby, Steranko and, of course Alex Toth, his hero. What he couldn't tell you about the art techniques employed in modern comic art wasn't worth knowing.

Unfortunately, I haven't been able to get my hands on any of his sequential work to post here, but I've managed to find some pieces from his sketchbook, which I wanted to share...

  1. I'm sorry your friend Ian is no longer with us. It sounds like he was a really great guy.

    Hope to read more from you in future, and eventually some of your work.
