Aw what a pretty girl

LOL My sister in law forwarded this photo that ran in my home town paper way back when.

They also had me do that Conan piece for them and dropped 1200 bucks in my lap for my trouble. Not bad for a kid that had barely gotten his feet wet in the business.



In case you were trying to twist your neck off to look at the illustration. Here it is right side up.
Sorry for the low rez. it is a newspaper after all.

Thanks Marc.

Thanks Jack, yeah I was very lucky.
I think I was 22.

Chris, I'm going to guess 0.

Thanks Kali.

Dave we'll start the ex-Hair Club for Men.

Pat, Yes, yes I was. Frazetta and Buscema were big influences. Of course I am not fit to touch their hem of their garment.

thanks Rudy

Allyn thanks, you can be in Ex-hair club too.

Trevor, It was after my first trip to LA. During which, I found no art jobs, and spent 8 months washing pots at the Huntington Sheraton Hotel. While trying to land an animation job.

PC, Now cut that out.
