When Kamen attended classes at the Art Students League and the Grand Central Art School, he paid for his studies by painting theatrical scenery, decorating fashion mannequins and creating sculptures.

After World War II, he started drawing comic book stories for Fiction House and the Eisner & Iger studio.

Famous quotes containing the word jack:

    The beast exists because it is stronger than the thing that you call evolution. In it is some force of life, a demon, driving it through millions of centuries. It does not surrender so easily to weaklings like you and me.
    Martin Berkeley, and Jack Arnold. Lucas (Nestor Paiva)
