Blast from the Past #104: Motocross Turtle

Of all the "Turtles on motorcycles" drawings Jim Lawson did for us during the "Team Mirage" years, this one is my favorite. It's a great example of Jim's amazing cartooning skills, and really captures the essence of motocross.

One of the cool things about this drawing is that if you don't know anything about motorcycles, it's just a really neat, exciting drawing. And if you DO know something about motorcycles, then you can very much appreciate the level of detail in everything from the gloves to the boots to the tires to the engine, and on and on. I would love to be able to draw machinery like this. -- PL


  1. -->>** my favourite classic Jim Lawson bike work ..

    and his Casey pin - up in tales 50 was so damm killer !!


  2. I agree about that pin-up in tales 50 Tokka, That was some of the Best work I've seen of Jim's in years.
    They should consider printing the mans work uninked.
