No not the music but the comic magazine. I used to do comic stories for it in the early 80's in a technique that forever disfigured my thumb.
Stippleism and line rendered with a rapidograph pen.
I have created a gallery of some of the work.

Lifetime themes
Reading Cathleen's post about her early artistic origins got me thinking about my own. Here is my earliest surviving drawings from around '55 when I was 5. Done in my 'Children's Guide to the Catholic Mass'.
I remember sitting on the kneeler and drawing in it while using the pew seat for a desk. Devils, Death and Reptiles still appear in my art to this day but bowls of fruit seem to have been abandoned.

My epiphany occurred when I asked my dad who drew architectural plans to draw me a person, thinking he would draw something great I could then copy. Well all he drew, to my disappointment was little more than a stick figure! I remember thinking " I can do better than that". Thanks Dad.
