This wonderful drawing arrived in the mail yesterday. I first met Gary in September of 1980, I remember clearly, we were standing by the pool at the Kubert School and we were introduced by Mike Chen. Later, Gary became my roommate at the Carriage House and he's been a friend ever since.

Ink and duo-Shade - 1991
ZONE and Ultra enjoying a summer day in the Meadowlands. This was done for the 1991 AMAZING HEROES Swimsuit Special.
This image of Ultra is based on Lourdes Sanchez, my girlfriend at the time, although the face is entirely my own invention - the swimsuit was deep red. Scattered next to Ultra's towel is some of my favorite reading material from 1991, THE JAM by Bernie Mirault, YUMMY FUR by Chester Brown and EIGHTBALL by Danial Clowes.
This was scanned from a photocopy.

Pitt Artist pen - 2012
ZONE and a scruffy, one-eyed puddle cat.
This was done for my student Val. Some people who collect sketches have themes for their sketchbook and when I asked Val if she had a theme for her sketchbook she said I could do what ever I wanted but if I wanted to I could do her favorite character Kitty Pryde. For anyone who doesn't know, Kitty Pryde is one of Marvel Comics X-MEN.
