|Carl Taylor I met thru snail mail back in 85-86, Carl has the great ability to cominde the pwerof Jack Kirby with the graceful flow of Gil Kane. I will be getting a bio from Carl and new and old art but in the meantime enjoy what I have had in my possesion for close to 20 years! |
Carl's bio will begin here shortly.
The man himself
This Carl Taylor in a great Kane pose.
The following are unamed sketch and layouts of an unnamed project though hopefully Carl will let me know what these were as they may be part of the Extraordinary Five book. The next to the last two are an interesting look at a thumbnail sketch and a final page. The last pics was a freehand sketch Carl did on the back of the next to last pic.

This section is Extraordinary Five Art, which at this point includes a preview cover and ad.
Misc Carl Art
This section is miscellanious art Carl sent me via e-mail including the first piece of Captain America which he had drawn for a fan in '77 who had contacted me thru the IF Forum so we thank Patti (she never gave her last name) and know she and Cral finally connected. Hope she reads this. Carl has also sent Fantastic Four sketches one in the Kirby style and one in the Gil Kane style. Unused Wonder Wardens art for a cover for Juan Gonzales' Moder Myths Zine. Art for Big Bang's History of Comics, inker unknown.
