Blast from the Past #78 repost: TMNT drawing on tablecloth scrap

Sometimes when you do a signing or a convention, you get a little bored or punchy near the end of the day. I think I was a little of both a few years ago when I doodled this group shot with a Sharpie® marker on a scrap piece of the vinyl tablecloth in front of me.



I guess I liked it enough to cut it out and take it home with me. -- PL

  1. Liked it enough?... I LOVE IT! Turtles, Casey, Fugitoid, and Zog! Great representation of the early characters, and it is surprisingly detailed for something you scribbled in a restaurant. Thanks for sharing!

  4. Peter,

    Did you first pencil this, or was it done with only the sharpie?

    If you did it one shot with a sharpie that's pretty amazing considering the detail and the scale of the piece.

    Either way it's really cool.

    As always thanks for sharing!

    Actually, I did this at the comic convention -- the vinyl tablecloth was the one tacked to our table at the show. -- PL

    This one was done directly in Sharpie -- no pencilling involved. -- PL

  7. Peter, have you ever considered doing more T-Shirt designs, because that would make an awesome one.

  8. Peter,

    Hey sometimes our freest work comes on napkins and the backs of 10 Pin Bowling score sheets. thanks for sharing this pic - always love the Triceratons though when I was a kid and first saw the comics I was like - That's a triceratops with a man's body. In my child's mind it was sacreledge to mix dinosaurs with boring humans :D I quickly learnt to know better - Gavin Wainwright , Australia.

  9. Hi Peter, Do you think you would ever sell or give away any of the drawings that you share with us through your blog? I have been a TMNT fan my entire life (I think they are the reason I love pizza so much). I also wanted to thank you for the signings and sketches you do for the fans. I was at NYCC last summer and you signed my NECA boxset of the turtles and it is and always will be a prized possesion for me. Thanks Peter keep up the amazing work, and please continue to share your work with us. I love seeing old sketches (because they are completely new to me and others).
