This project is incredible and I was fortunate to be just one of the 100+ artists involved.
Ed Siemienkowicz was an illustrator and author based in Chicago, Illinois. He was an incredible person and an amazing friend to those who knew him well. Unfortunately, I did not get the chance to know him but do know many of his wonderful friends. One in particular, Darick, decided to organize the group and has asked fellow artists to help finish the rest of Ed’s memoir comic about his 40th year of life.
These spreads were created digitally in Photoshop using Kyle T Webster’s ink brushes. The only requirement of the artists in the project is that we drew Ed in his signature style so that he was a constant throughout the final book. The rest of the people and objects could be drawn in our own style.
