Le Gallerie Plastique: JJ Kirby

I can’t put my finger on what it is I like so much about this piece by JJ Kirby, but it might be everything.

In particular I like that Kirby’s influences are apparent enough to lend a comfortable familiarity, but subtle enough to maintain originality. And I always appreciate it when an artist can use hand-drawing and computer graphics tools together in a way that still feels organic.

Best of all though, is the idea of putting Plastic Man — a character known for taking any crazy, fluid form imaginable — into the shape of a square. Whether it was on purpose or not, it’s pretty inspired.

Be sure to go see more of JJ Kirby’s work on his DeviantArt page, and see even more of his art (including a sweet Amanda Waller) on his blog.
