Vince, great to see some of your past work! The color really held up, huh? Or was that a litte photoshop help? I have work from my childhood that makes me laugh and cringe at the same time. Thanks for sharing.

Thank you Oscar.

I'm glad you enjoyed my 1969 sketches, Ariel. I'll be adding more at a later date.

Ry, I found these pieces while looking through some old envelopes the other day. I just find old stuff like this amusing.
The funny thing is that I don't remember what I had for lunch last Tuesday, but I can remember cobbling some of these together, over forty years ago.
I even remember where I was sitting in our apartment and what I was watching on TV while doing the Sandman/Spider-Man piece.

As far as the color is concerned, I used Venus Paradise color pencils. They were from the very popular Color-By-Number kits my Dad used to buy for me. Very similar to Prismacolor's, in fact they are probably the same formula.

No photoshop was used nor were any animals harmed in creating these pictures.

Thanks for commenting, buddy.
