My first "How to...." book
In 1974 I decided to write a book for young artists which I sold through ads in comic books. Usually I sold just enough of them to pay for the ads, so I gave up on the project. However it was the forerunner of all the books that I would eventually write for Watson Guptill.
Here is a cartoon of Dracula.
A more realistic version of Dracula. About the same time I was actually illustrating a book full of Dracula drawings.
Various stages of the Dr. Pimple drawing. First the rough sketch, then a tighter drawing done with a marker pen, then the finished art drawn in ink with a brush.
The same stages of the King Kung Fu drawing.
