    Description

    Ken Steacy - Original Splash Page Art for Blackhawk #272, page 1 (DC, 1985). Ken Steacy has been producing instantly recognizable comic art for nearly three decades now. Despite that recognition, his art manages to look new and innovative every time you see it. His use of the airbrush to render surface texture or background patterns is astounding. Note the precision with which he filled in the areas around the female figures along the right edge, as well as in the drop shadow for the story title. The way that Steacy's panels tend to overlap further adds to the appeal of this piece in its compositional unity. This page measures 11.25" x 16" and is in great shape with minor use of corrective white out. The corners were cropped as part of the original printing process.
