Tyler Kirkham Announced as the Commemorative Artist for FCBD 2022

Diamond Comic Distributors has revealed the commemorative artwork for Free Comic Book Day (FCBD) 2022. Prolific artist Tyler Kirkham has created a one-of-a-kind design emphasizing the imagination, creativity, and friendship that come from exploring the pages of a comic book. The design will serve as the commemorative t-shirt and poster for FCBD 2022.

Like many comic book creators, Tyler Kirkham began as a fan. Reading Image Comics as a teenager in the 90s, Kirkham honed his craft as an artist, making small sales to local newspapers in Utah, showing off his portfolio, and eventually landing his first professional comics work on The Gift. Kirkham’s talent gained the attention of Marc Silvestri and Top Cow Studios, where he worked on StrykeforceWitchblade, and Tomb Raider. Kirkham moved on to projects like Ultimate Fantastic FourX-Men: Phoenix WarsongNew Avengers/TransformersGreen Lantern Corps, Deathstroke, as well as video game concept artwork and covers. Kirkham brings dynamic energy and a fan’s passion to his artwork, and both qualities come through with his commemorative art piece for Free Comic Book Day 2022.
