I'm staying over at my childhood home between gigs and have just had a look in the cupboards. Check out my version of Blakes Seven, a bit of sample artwork from 1983. It's a crumpled photocopy, the original artwork long since lost. And it's not the only thing I found while having a root around...
Doctor Who? Not only did I look like him at the time (plus ca change) but I turned out a nifty bit of sample artwork for a lad. But who had sent it back I wonder..?
Marvel eh? Well, their loss. Ten years later I found myself working for them after all. Then after a couple of years they filed for Chapter 11 bankruptcy and I wasn't working for them. I'm sure their chance will come round again.
