"Indeterminately-Aged Genetically-Atypical Samurai Tortoise"
pencil and digital, 2009
I remember tracing a Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtle over and over out of a Nintendo Power magazine in the 5th grade. I think it was a big part of learning to draw.
Later in Mrs. Bill's Art II class in high school, I chose a particular panel from the original Eastman and Laird TMNT comics as the basis for my clay project, a shot of Raphael perched on the corner of some NYC roof ledge, all cool and stuff.
Anyhow, here's the new one... : J
(and for purists, tho I based dude here on a Box Turtle - Brits and Aussies calls those tortoises)
