Did I ever tell you guys about the time I met Sam Kieth? I have admired the man’s talent for as far back as I can remember and finally had a chance to meet him a few years back. He came (late) to Boston Comic-Con and signed for hours – but amazingly, for a guy whose line was longer than his designated space, he didn’t just sign – he struck up genuine conversations! He talked at length about the artwork and what went into creating it – or how he was worried how people would react to certain pieces.
When it was finally my turn I went a step further – even though the Boston Comic Con workers had said there was “no sketching”, seeing as I was one of the last people in line, with only two other people behind me, I did ask for a quick head sketch. I had been trying to get some artists to add to it all day and only had luck with Erik Larsen and Fred Hembeck (see below) He obliged and gave me something I have longed for for YEARS. My own personal piece of art from Sam Kieth. Tune back in Monday to see a shot of the entire piece! But in this post take a gander at a few shots I was able to take of the man himself!
