Good Morning, Happy Monday! It's August 23rd, and I just want to wish a very Happy Birthday to Legendary Comic Book Artist Terry Austin!
You may know that "Terry Austin Made the move to New York State in the early 1970's to seek employment in the field of comic book illustration, which led to an apprenticeship with master Inker Dick Giordano at Continuity Studios in NYC, on such projects as BATMAN, CONAN, THOR, DRACULA, SUPERMAN VS. MUHAMMAD ALI and the first SUPERMAN / SPIDER-MAN team-up."
"As an inker, Terry has worked on such diverse projects over the years as THE UNCANNY X-MEN, CAMELOT 3000, DR. STRANGE, DETECTIVE COMICS, STAR WARS, SONIC X / SONIC THE HEDGEHOG, SUPERMAN ADVENTURES, GREEN LANTERN, BATMAN: THE DARK DETECTIVE and the team-ups of THE X-MEN / TEEN TITANS, GREEN LANTERN / SILVER SURFER, and SILVER SURFER / SUPERMAN, in the process winning the Eagle Award 10 times, CBG Award 6 times and the odd Saturn and Alley Awards as best inker of the year. In 2008, he was named Favorite Inker in the Retro division of the Inkwell Awards, voted on by professional Inkers, in a tie with his close friend Joe Sinnott, for whom he once inked some backgrounds on the second SUPERMAN / SPIDER-MAN team-up."
"Terry has penciled cover art for THE UNCANNY X-MEN, THE FURTHER ADVENTURES OF INDIANA JONES, SHOGUN WARRIORS, CLOAK AND DAGGER, STRANGE TALES and STAR-LORD: THE SPECIAL EDITION, as well as interior work in MARVEL FANFARE, CREEPY, CRAZY, APPLE PIE, DC's WHO'S WHO series, THE SENSATIONAL SHE-HULK, STAR WARS, WHAT TH- ?! and THE BATMAN GALLERY."
"In addition to a four year run as the writer of CLOAK AND DAGGER, Terry has written issues of POWER PACK, EXCALIBUR, WHAT IF?, MARVEL FANFARE, an X-MEN ANNUAL and the comic book adaptation of STAR WARS: SPLINTER OF THE MIND'S EYE."
I had the pleasure of photographing Terry in his upstate New York Studio for My Artist Within project, Here is that shot, have close look around, check out his Amazing collection, so much fun stuff, and I know what you're thinking, yes that is a real "Schmoo!"
Happy Birthday Terry!
