A few weeks back I was asked to contribute art to a book honoring legendary comic artist Russ Heath. Here is the image I drew for it. I’m so happy that the Comic Art Professional Society decided to honor him and his work this year. Like so many comic artists of his generation, in his later years, Russ’s career and notoriety have waned. It seems that only a small minority of illustrators from that era ever truly receive the credit they deserve. In a small way his recognition by CAPS is an opportunity to rectify that.
