A Jack Davis retrospective Kickstarter thingy...

The Glynn Art Association is having a public art retrospective honoring the work of the legendary Jack Davis, right there in his current hometown of St. Simons Island, Georgia.  I learned about this via the Mark Schultz Facebook feed-- he's contributing a drawing and some prints, and there's involvement from Arnold Roth, Walt Simonson, Ella McBee Cart, Heidi Arhnold, Tracy Yardley, Brad Walker and many other talented artists.

Not only is Jack Davis one of the finest artists ever to grace the pages of a comic book-- or the cover of TV Guide, for that matter-- he also happens to be a warm and gracious human being who treated this particular fan much better than I deserved when I phone interviewed him for a class project way back in the mid-1990s.  So check it out, please!
