Bill Sienkiewicz Talks The Role Of Comic Artists In Influencing Movie Studios

Shaping Heroes On Screen

♦ Artist Bill Sienkiewicz has long been a favourite artist and illustrator of ours and here he is talking about how the work of great comic artists like himself are influencing the portrayal of comic characters on the big screen

Here is his bio from wikipedia with a few additions from us:

Boleslav William Felix Robert Sienkiewicz (/sɪnˈkɛvɪ/ sin-KEV-itch; born 3 May 1958), better known as Bill Sienkiewicz, is an Eisner Award-winning American artist known for his work in comic books—particularly for Marvel Comics’ The New Mutants and Elektra: Assassin. Sienkiewicz’s work in the 1980s was considered revolutionary in mainstream US comics, due to his highly stylized art that verged on abstraction and made use of oil painting, photorealism, collage, mimeograph, and other forms generally uncommon in comic books. He has also created illustrations for films like John Wick Chapter 2, Logan, Black Panther and TV shows like Legion. He has worked regularly with artistic collaborator and friend Denys Cowan too.

Here’s his revamped website which has been live for a little while too
