Metropolis, USA - 1969
Here is a side view of Superman that I drew when I was about 13 years old. Back then I was really into art. I also had a large collection of comic books. I collected them primarily for the art content, and not so much for the stories, and in fact, I rarely read any of them but looked at the pictures instead. Most of the time, I could easily tell who penciled and who inked (it was usually done by two separate artists) the images just by looking at them. I became fascinated by superheroes and it didn’t take long before I started drawing pictures of them. During my early teens, I also thought I would grow up to become a professional comic book artist. However, by the time I became an adult, I lost interest in comics and never drew any pictures of any kind again.
