My mother used to save a lot of the stuff I drew when I was a kid. After she died I put all these things in a box. Recently I dug through the papers and sketchbooks and decided to post some of this early work.
Here's another adventure comic strip, Slipstream Barry, Flyer of Fortune (instead of Soldier of Fortune). Below are a few pages from sketchbooks where I was practicing drawing heads with a pen using India ink.
Lastly, a pencil sketch of a superhero. My best friend at that time was Herb Schiebold who also was an artist. We used to go out and paint watercolors, I'll see if I can dig up any of the paintings that we did. Herb later became a top notch graphic designer working in the Detroit area and was a partner in the studio Art Workshop.
