Tyler Kirkham Serving as Commemorative Artist for FCBD 2022

FCBD 2022 commemorative t-shirt design

We are excited to reveal 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 FCBD 2022 Commemorative Artist Tyler Kirkham 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 Strykeforce, Witchblade, and Tomb Raider. Kirkham moved on to projects like Ultimate Fantastic Four, X-Men: Phoenix Warsong, New Avengers/Transformers, Green 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.

"I wanted to create a cover that emphasized imagination, creativity, friendship and family,” said FCBD 2022 Commemorative Artist, Tyler Kirkham. “I imagined this as a story leaping from an action-adventure sci-fi comic.  A story of two young siblings that have created some sort of energy that can construct things they imagine. Unifying them in a way. I pictured them creating a big brother robot to help them defeat some off panel threat. I really just had a lot of fun designing and drawing this. I think it makes for a fun FCBD design!"

The FCBD 2022 Commemorative T-shirt will be available in adult sizes small through XXXL (MSRP: $14.99-$17.99) in navy and white, and in youth sizes small through large (MSRP: $11.99) in navy and white. The Commemorative Poster will be 22” x 28” on a white background (MSRP: $11.99). The shirt and poster, along with a complete listing of all the FCBD 2022 comic book titles and exclusive collectibles, can be found in the February issue of the PREVIEWS catalog, available in comic shops on January 26, 2022.
