my early illustration from 1987

quite significant in that it’s a 20 year old “drawring”. even more significant is that i don’t have any artwork older than this (it’s the oldest one i’ve managed to keep). it would have been nice to have tracked the progress of my doodling up to that point in time, which as i recall was rather awful 3-4 years prior.

1987 illustration

Black Manta from Super Friends and the uniform from Airwolf influenced the look, but the main source of inspiration was from the Kirk Douglas movie Saturn 3. i dont remember anything about the movie other than it had Kirk Douglas, it had Saturn in the title, and how cool the bad guy’s spacesuit looked (played by Harvey Keitel):

if i drew it nowadays it would look like this:
