Following the death of Stan Lee earlier this week, artist Bill Sienkiewicz posted a portrait he'd created in honor of the comics legend's 95th birthday last year. Although that previous image was old, Sienkiewicz has now finished a new piece of art in tribute to Lee.
Sienkiewicz posted the image to Twitter. His caption is simple, reading, "R.I.P. #StanLee @Marvel" The stunning portrait shows Lee's face rendered in an art style that is distinctly Sienkiewicz.
Sienkiewicz, who is an award-winning artist, has long considered Lee a mentor and close friend. While at Marvel Comics, Sienkiewicz worked on such Lee-created character as the Fantastic Four and Spider-Man. He's known for his runs on The New Mutants, Moon Knight and Elektra: Assassin.
Lee, who created many of Marvel's most beloved characters, has appeared in 20 Marvel Cinematic Universe movies to date. Lee's next film cameo will be in the animated film Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse. The comics legend had already filmed his cameo for the upcoming Avengers 4 prior to his death.
