JackDavis Splash

A while back, Bill Peckmann assembled a number of sample pages from the many pieces Jack Davis had illustrated over a 10 year period. View that here. Bill’s done it again and offers many more glimpses of the many styles of this brilliant illustrator by showing the lead, splash panels of the many stories he did. It really gives us a good indecation of how much work and how varied Jack Davis’ style was and still is.

    I wish Jack Davis had done more serious comic-book work. Oh well, I’ll just enjoy the work he gave us.

    His figures are so alive and dynamic, even in his more serious work.

    You know, while Marie Severin’s adds a lot of mood to the drawings, the way to really see Jack Davis’ work is in black and white. He was a master of light and shadow using his brush and ink.
