Stone sculptures by Everett Hibbard

As most hikers do, Everett Hibbard would pick up the odd rock, look at it from a couple of angles and then usually put it back on the ground.

Unlike most of us, he was looking for animals and other images in the rock.

When he spotted something promising, the rock came home with him. In his basement studio, he cut and ground away the part that wasn't animal and the result was an engaging stone sculpture.

Christmas Cards

Everett Hibbard channeled his artistic talents to the annual Christmas card tradition.

He picked a subject, most often an animal, sketched a simple scene in black and white.

He then had his sketch printed on card stock. He used different formats, once a post card, but generally he printed a half page image, then folded the page to form the card.

Then each card he sent had a personal message and a hand drawn and colored personalization, such as some holly leaves and berries.

E.E. Hibbard and his career as a noted comic book artist.

The series was written by Gardner Fox, and the stories are fairly serious and straightforward, but the art by E.E. Hibbard was critical to the success of the series, adding an almost slapstick feel to it.

All-Flash, originally published as All-Flash Quarterly, was a comic book magazine series published by All-American Publications. The series was the first solo feature given to the comic book character The Flash...
