I recently pulled out my childhood sketchbooks. It is really funny to look through at what I was drawing then and where I was trying to go. So I thought I would share a couple of pages.
This is the first page in my first sketchbook. I still remember where I was when I made these drawings. In my brother’s day care loft waiting for my mom to finish up a board meeting. One of the dogs was a stuffed animal that was keeping me company. He looked really scared.

Then this is Slick. I remember coming up with her, trying out lots of characters to make a team. Her eyes where part of my style at the time. I figured all of my characters would have eyes shaped like hers.
