Dick Giordano Week, Part 4 - Original Sketch

This is the brand-new sketch Mr. G did for me from his home in Florida, and of course it's awesome!

I generally prefer to get sketches from the artist in person, but since Dick rarely makes it to any con in my general area, we corresponded via email. Just a few weeks after commissioning him, this baby arrived on my doorstep.

This is the Aquaman I'm so used to seeing, all over DC merch of the 70s and 80s--dynamic, exciting, and happy. As I told him, I'm thrilled that I get to add Giordano to my list of sketches, alongside such other legends like Cardy, Fradon, Infantino, and Aparo.

Tomorrow: a word or two from the man himself!

VERY nice, Rob. I especially like the way Mr. Giordano renders the scales on Arthur's shirt. - Andy Luckett

Very attractive. I especially like the shoulders. Looks oddly more like Tony DeZuniga than Dick. Similar pose to the Shrine's banner-- intentional?
