O.P.’s SKETCHBLOG: “JAZZY” Jeff Heermann

Jeff Heermann is an old internet comic- illustration buddy; his work never fails to astound. A man who is caught in the raptourous grip of 4-color nostalgia, Roman Noir and reverence to such comics/illustration luminaries as Ditko, Krigstein, Aparo, Jerry Robinson and Commander Mark. A slave to his 4-color fantasies; yet a trailblazer with the fusion of tradition ink and pen and the digital. We salute you JEFF HEERMANN- now gimme my sawbuck!
