THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO - COME TO 'LIFE'...
You're looking at the cover of BLAKE BELL's 2008 book,
THE WORLD OF STEVE DITKO. When myself and one of
my pals, MOONMANDO, visited an art gallery recently and saw a
display of giant heads, I remarked that they reminded me of Ditko in
some way, 'though I wasn't quite sure why. It was regular commenter
McSCOTTY (in response to a post I did of our visit) who pointed
out that the display was reminiscent of the cover of Blake Bell's
book - which I've had in my collection for a good while.
Anyway, Moony played around with a couple of photos he'd
taken of the display, transforming them from colour into black
and white, and also photoshopping the suspending cables out of the
picture. He's graciously allowed me to reproduce them here and, as
you can see, they're almost like the Ditko illustration brought to life.
I wonder if the display's creator was inspired by the co-creator
of SPIDER-MAN - what do you think?
