Simon Bisley painting; Kirby Monster variant cover; 2015; image size 11.75" x 16.5"
The Blip from Tales to Astonish #15Simon Bisley interprets Kirby's 'The Blip' from Tales to Astonish #15 as only he can, beautifully rendered destruction as you would expect from the artist who made his name on DCs Lobo comics in the 90s. Mixed media. Art is in excellent condition. Signed by Bisley.
Bisley started his career doing magazine and album covers, his first work being a T-shirt design for heavy metal magazine Kerrang! Eventually, even though he had no experience in comics strip drawing at the time, he was hired by the magazine 2000 AD after they saw his interpretations of their magazine characters. According to the Comic Book Database, "while still a student, Bisley did a painting of a robot holding a baby that he sent to the offices of 2000 AD. The image was seen by Pat Mills and inspired him to relaunch the ABC Warriors strip, with Bisley as artist, in 1987". He started with work on ABC Warriors in 1987, later moving to Sláine and Judge Dredd. Since 1997, Bisley is a regular contributor of the comics magazine Heavy Metal.
