I discovered there was a “Hidden Visual Language” inherent in all of Jack’s drawings, further enhanced by Mike’s Inks. With awe I further developed a method for both Color and the deep black of his drawings to merge together, without one overpowering the other but still giving Seniority to Jack’s lines — ending up giving both works a phenomenal integration resulting in, for me, a feeling of being alive. Likewise I was able to distill the essential pigment pixels of Annie’s work which found itself a consuming & practical color collaboration with her natural creativity!
The Terminal of the Gods ~ The Central complex of all transportation to and from Heaven . Home of the Garuda Bird. Disembarkation point of the Jet Tube Transporter for Science Fiction Land®. International Heliport. The first Lord of Light drawing. Jack just finished the Eternals and you can see the Mayan influences. And yes, the chief drawing responsible for the Iranian’s belief that the CIA was a real film company. Their impression, according one of the Sons of the Revolutionaries who interviewed me in 2013, was the Terminal of the Gods served to mean the “Leaving of the Shah and the Return of their ancient Religion.”

When Barry Ira Geller hired Jack Kirby to co-design with him the “Lord of Light” project and “Science Fiction Land ®” he gave Kirby a couple of books on Asian art and architecture so he could familiarize himself with certain Hindu motifs. Years later when Geller hired me to colorize a portion of Kirby’s incredible LOL/SFL output, Barry handed me two very extensive hardbacks on comic book art so I could familiarize myself with the fantastic output of Jack Kirby.
I chose a medium-light green for both the raised platform floor of the Terminal and for its outer structure deliberately because in the event of a war time emergency, the Terminal might need to collapse into itself and camouflauge itself in order to look like nothing more than a peaceful green lawn (The Lockheed Aircraft plant in Burbank California camouflaged itself just that way). Although we didn’t expect that to happen in Science Fiction Land, who knows?
Because the huge god on the left sports amphibian scales I colored his body with aquatic blues and green and his wearable equipment in bright oranges and reds, for contrast.
