Star Wars Storyboard Artist David Russell on Jack Kirby

Home Art Star Wars Storyboard Artist David Russell on Jack Kirby

When asked where his inspiration comes from Russell cites Jack Kirby.

I would have to say Jack Kirby. I picked up my first Jack Kirby comic around 11 or 12 and it was something about his keen visual narrative that set off an explosion in my mind. I later had the chance to meet him and he became a great friend and mentor. I’ve applied his narrative techniques in all of my films. I believe to this day that comics are one of America’s most powerful art forms.
