Today Michel Fiffe took to his Facebook page to admire Jerry Ordway’s work–his Superman covers in particular.
Today’s inspiration: one of my favorite Jerry Ordway covers.
When I asked Fiffe what makes Ordway so strong for him this was his answer. “The composition, the draftsmanship, the linework, the duo shade tones, the characters and the suspense portrayed, the color, the paper, the subjective nostalgia, the objective technical skill, the context of both the story and artist in relation to the title and its placement in the art form.”
I then contacted Fiffe offline to see if he could name for more covers of note, within minutes he did.
