Check out the detail on this Mort Meskin Chesty 1940's Splash Page. From the legendary studio of Eisner & Iger, to DC Comics, to the Joe Simon-Jack Kirby partnership, Mort Meskin left indelible imprints upon the first generation of comic-book art. Many enthusiasts know his Johnny Quick and Boys' Ranch and Mark Merlin stories, but few are aware of a Meskin character named Chesty Williams, "that tall talker from 10th Avenue." This dynamic splash finds Chesty judging a beauty contest involving glamorous women from mythology and ancient history. A kinship to Simon & Kirby's tough-kid features of the 1940s is patent. Ink over blue pencil on thick illustration board. The image area is 12 by 18 inches on much larger thick art board. ALL art on our website (including this one) are able to be purchased with VERY fair time payments, and trades are always considered towards "ANY" art on our website! Just send us an email to mikeburkey@aol.com and we can try to work something out.
