JIM STERANKO has cut a ferocious path through the entertainment arts, with a dozen successful careers to his credit: author, magician, illustrator, escape artist, historian. He is cited as one of the prime architects of Marvel Comics and the co-creator of NICK FURY, AGENT OF S.H.I.E.L.D. He also wrote and drew CAPTAIN AMERICA, THE HULK, SUPERMAN, and THE X-MEN (for which he designed the classic title logo); generated more than 150 original storytelling devices and techniques that changed the direction of the comics’ medium; and evolved a devoted cult of followers who have nicknamed him The Innovator. WIZARD magazine credits Steranko as the 5th Most Influential Artist in the history of the form.
He has painted a multitude of movie posters, record albums, and book covers; and in 1975, created RED TIDE, the First Modern Graphic Novel. As the editor-publisher of the international newsstand entertainment magazine PREVUE, he conducted hundreds of superstar interviews and penned more than three million words. He numbers among his friends and associates writers Mickey Spillane, Arthur C. Clarke, and Ray Bradbury; the animation giants Ralph Bakshi and Shamus Culhane; and directors Federico Fellini, John Huston, and Orson Welles.
As a musician, he gigged with Bill Haley in the early days of rock 'n' roll; as a pop-culture icon, he has appeared at more than 350 international events and exhibited his work worldwide, including at the Smithsonian Institute in Washington, DC and the Louvre in Paris; and his two volumes of THE HISTORY OF COMICS have sold more than 100,000 copies each. As an escape artist, his death-defying performances inspired the character Mister Miracle and, according to Pulitzer Prize-winning novelist Michael Chabon, he was the man upon which the protagonist of THE AMAZING ADVENTURES OF KAVALIER & KLAY was based; and more—photographer, ad agency art director, sideshow fire-eater, male model, typographer, designer...the list goes on.
As a filmmaker, he collaborated with Steven Spielberg, George Lucas—for whom he created the look of Indiana Jones—and Francis Ford Coppola on some of their most popular films. He served as Creative Consultant for the History Channel's two-hour documentary COMIC-BOOK SUPERHEROES—UNMASKED; shook up Twitter with his innovative TNT technique (visit his live Sunday-night sessions by typing in iamsteranko); and is currently prepping AN EVENING WITH STERANKO for theatrical venues across the country.
His recent CAPTAIN AMERICA covers topped Marvel sales charts; the IDW SHIELD ARTIST’S EDITION sold out before publication (and won an Eisner Award); and the 2017 OVERSTREET PRICE GUIDE—with his Batman cover—had record-breaking sales. His covers on the record-setting ACTION 1000 and CAPTAIN AMERICA 700 have polled as fan favorites. His next is a Batman cover for DETECTIVE 1000.And he's still the best-dressed man in comics.
Low Vision Studio
I have been legally blind since birth but that has never kept me from achieving the goals that I set for myself. Art has always been my talent and I have worked very hard to get where I am today. For the majority of artists, they concept their creation stand back from the canvas and begin creating but this is not the case for me. My whole world exists only an inch or two from the paper as I peer through a magnifying glass to create. This is my comfort zone and it locks me into my own world to bring to life my thoughts and inspirations. Come join me on this journey and explore Low Vision Studio, maybe one of my creations will motivate you to accomplish your goals and over come the barriers that stand in your way.

Marty Grabstein is an American actor and voice actor best known for doing the voice of the title character in the Cartoon Network animated series Courage the Cowardly Dog. Grabstein used a combinaion of paranoia and panic to make the voice of Courage authenic. In the First season of the cartoon, he actually said many spoken words as Courage, but for the rest of the series, Courage had far fewer lines and spoken words; Grabstein did almost all of its talking by gibberish and mumbling. This is because when viewing the first season of the show, the producers felt that Courage "talked too much" and wanted the dog to be more laconic.
