    Description

    Gil Kane - TV Cartoon Presentation Piece Illustration Original Art (undated). Gil Kane drew hundreds of comic book stories for Marvel, DC, Dell, Tower, and other publishers during a three decade career in the field. Like his peers Jack Kirby, Doug Wildey, Alex Toth, Mike Sekowsky, and Russ Heath, Gil Kane left the comic book field for a time to work in the animation industry. The animation studios recognized Kane's tremendous imagination and ability as a dynamic concept and presentation piece artist and welcomed him with open arms. This supercharged "presentation piece" scene showcases the enormous talent Kane had for creating cosmic, interplanetary, costumed heroes and it recalls his work on the Superman, Green Lantern, and Warlock titles. Gil Kane has always brought to his work a dynamic energy and an intelligence that gives his work a quality above and beyond his amazingly skillful command of figure drawing. The piece has an overall size of 30" x 20", and the art is in Excellent condition.
