Blast from the Past #323: "Turtlemania" cover art

Some (okay, many) of the details of the history of this piece have vanished from my brain, but I do remember Kevin and I drew this (my pencils, Kevin's inks) to go on the cover of a little mini-comic kind of thing that the organizer of a small convention in Florida planned to produce and sell at the show to which he had invited us.

It was a fun trip; our host was a nice guy, and I saw cool lizards on the sidewalks. And out of that experience came several now-collectible editions of this "Turtlemania" publication. -- PL


  1. Looking at this pic, I like the sort of... evolution of the turtles... The way they were drawn, and how they seemed to develop different personalities.

  2. t reminds me of a toy I got in kindergarten. I don't recall the exact name of it,but it was a Michelangelo dressed in beach attire and squirted water.

    I can see an evolved style myself. Its almost like a merged early TMNT look of Mirage and Playmates Toy look put inot one nice piece.

  3. Peter-

    blast from the past for sure, reminds me of having these books a kid and copying them page for page. I just stumbled upon your blog, and being a fellow artist and a hugggggee tmnt fan I was wondering if I could ask you a few questions and have you give me your input on my art?
