Ben Grimm: Clobberin’ Time!

This piece was done for my good friend, Steve Funnell (, who might be the greatest Thing fan of all time! Steve and I are both fans of the classic Kirby-era FANTASTIC FOUR, so it seemed only fitting that I make this drawing a salute to Jack Kirby, Joe Sinnott, Stan Lee and the classic era of Marvel! Ben is rendered in brush inks, while the floating heads are rendered in “B” graphite pencil for contrast. Benjamin Grimm is a character who carries the weight of the world on his shoulders, so I wanted to symbolize this in the image layout. That’s why all the heads on this image float above him and not below in the composition. This piece was an absolute pleasure to draw! I love drawing the Thing, the FF, the Hulk, Galactus, and Doctor Doom, so this was just a blast! I even got to draw Wyatt Wingfoot! Wyatt Wingfoot!!! There’s a first time for everything! Hold on to your hats, Yancy lads–“IT’S CLOBBERIN’ TIME!!” What a revolting development…
