I found this photo while I was looking for some other images to go with a post on my other blog, and thought it was kind of nifty. I'm not sure who took it -- probably Kevin, though it is possible Jeannine was behind the camera.
I'm not really sure what the point of it was. The artwork I am posing with is, as fans of the comics will surely recognize, some of the interior art from the first issue of TMNT. This was apparently taken midway through the process of toning the pages, as some are clearly completely untoned and others partially toned.
This photo was taken in the palatial offices of Mirage Studios... in reality, the former dining room off the kitchen in our Dover, NH house (a house which sadly is no more). The TV to my left is the one often obliquely referred to by Kevin and me in interviews about the birth of the TMNT, when we would refer to spending many nights together in that room drawing stuff and "watching bad TV shows". As I recall, it was gifted to us by someone who had to move and didn't want to deal with the TV set... which was a great bit of serendipity, because back in those days, we could not have afforded a color TV. -- PL
