I’ve been sorting through boxes of crap since our move, slowly organizing piles and piles of papers. I found these old drawings of my grandparents that I must’ve done near 30 years ago? It’s funny how I drew the tennis one as I probably thought you had to draw people doing things like I had probably seen caricature artists doing. Not sure why tennis. I don’t remember that being a thing she even did at the time. I don’t know.

When you find some of your old artwork…

To be fair, it was 1992 and comics were more or less in the toilet with a few exceptions. So making a Spawn rip-off, but way worse, was totally okay at the time, right? Man. Glowing eyes and a metal arm? But with a sword? Yuck. I’ve posted some old Cadaver art before if you are interested. And Bishop was a 90s guy, that’s for sure. Not sure what happened with the drawing of him. Yipes.

YARG.

Another piece of comic art from high school. Probably about 1995 or so. Something like that. From a story about a trip to Hell. A story my friend Russell wrote. I wasn’t good enough of an artist at the time to draw right, so it just devolved into the graphic violence. Which I enjoyed at the time. As well as now. That’s Echo (what the super-hero version of myself [seen here] became later) in the front and the devilish Old Nick in the back there. I sure enjoyed wasting ink by splattering it everywhere back then.
