Lines Through the Abstract: Celebrating Bill Sienkiewicz
Bill Sienkiewicz (that's "sin-KEV-itch") was born on May 3, 1958. He's an artist best known for Moon Knight and New Mutants, but his work changed popular notions of what superhero art could be. In the early 1980s, mainstream comics art basically looked like one thing. Certainly there was no shortage of brilliant artists, and each had their own recognizable style — it's no challenge to tell Neal Adams from John Byrne from Jim Starlin — but everything fit into a relatively narrow framework of representational depictions and traditionally heroic figures.
