Cyril Jordan has always enjoyed artwork, and has dabbled in illustration for as long as he could remember. Many of the earliest Flamin’ Groovies handbills were created by Cyril, and he’s also created some memorable album covers as well. When Cyril decided to drop out of the music business, he returned to his other great passion- illustration!
Comic books are a big part of who Cyril Jordan is. One his biggest kicks was getting a deal to provide artwork for a genuine Walt Disney comic book published by Gladstone Publishing in 1989.
Cyril Jordan is actually profiled in a book titled “Comic-Book Superstars” (Krause Publications, ISBN 0-87341-256-7). There’s a great quote in there- “Favorite comics not worked on: Uncle Scrooge, Mad, Walt Disney’s Comics and Stories, Cracked.”
Cyril has embraced the field of comic book recreations, where he gets a chance to pay homage to his favorite comic book artists of his youth. Vintage comic book cover recreations are increasingly recognized as prized collectable art. A superb feature article on this form of art appeared in the 2001 Overstreet Guide, “Re-Creations In A Flash”.
