Description

John Buscema - Original Pencil Illustration (1979). Here it is! A John Buscema original pencil drawing of one his best-realized characters, Conan, in a one-of-a-kind find. You can see how Buscema visualizes Robert E. Howard's Hyborean hero in its purest form, without the addition of ink. One of the most interesting thing about this drawing is the vitality of the line and tone work. You can actually see Buscema's thought process as he works through the muscles and sinew to get to the core of Conan's persona. Drawn at a peak point in Buscema's Conan career, it measures 10" x 13 1/2". Signed by the artist.

Buscema, John:John Buscema (American 1927-2002): After the departure of Jack Kirby from Marvel in 1970, John Buscema became one of the company’s most influential artists. Buscema is perhaps most celebrated for his Bronze Age work on the Avengers, the Silver Surfer, and Conan the Barbarian. Buscema’s work proved so in-demand in the mid-seventies, he launched the John Buscema Art School which advertised for students in the pages of many Marvel titles. Stan Lee made appearances as a guest lecturer at Buscema's school and the two collaborated on the wildly popular book How to Draw Comics The Marvel Way, Simon and Schuster, 1978 . Comic Art
