Check out: Jack Davis Foundation
After this weekend in Vegas I can now say that I have met the great Jack Davis (and have a signed sketch!). He has an incredible story and career. A foundation has been set up to “facilitate the study and appreciation of Jack Davis’s contribution to 20th-century art through development of databases, archives, education and exhibitions.” Their website is http://jackdavisfoundation.org/.
Through his career, Jack Davis has done a massive amount of illustration work for magazines, books, comics, advertising, animation, and record covers. At the Jack Davis Foundation’s website, we’ve provided a small sampling of Jack’s work, some of which can be found in books of his work and other places around the web. For this blog, however, we hope to showcase some work of Jack’s that hasn’t been seen as much; his rough sketches, abandoned projects, anecdotes behind more renown pieces, and photographs. We’ll try to update a few times a week to share some of these Davis gems with those of you who admire his work so much.
