I thought it might be a good time to share a few pieces from the flat files...
The Hagar the Horrible art was created for in-store marketing.
That's my coloring on the strip, and my figure drawing of Hagar at the bottom of the pages--my lettering too.
And a very nice note of appreciation, from Chris Browne follows it.
The Popeye art was a different story, this art was featured on billboards, bus stops, subway ads and print ads, all over the country. Created when I worked at GEM Studio for the second time in the late '80s. It was a thrill to work on the "Old Sailor"-- especially since he was the first image I'd ever drawn as a child. My only regret is that I didn't handle him better. Looking at it now I can see the inconsistent linework and the poor color choices, but I'm still very glad and grateful that I had the chance to do the assignment.
