How it all started

Looking back can be a strange thing. When I was a kid I was into comic books and tv-shows like High Chaparral, Star Trek, Space 1999 and all the rest of them. Nothing strange, I loved the adventures. No surprise then that I started to draw my own comics at age 13 (or thereabouts) along with a good friend of mine from school. This lasted until other things came along (you can guess what) but I have kept all these pages of nutty art and although it seems like a lifetime ago now at least I can go back to it and take a nostalgic look should I want to. Lots of memories of course.

With RETROFUTURE 6 I look back at my life and all the magazines etc so I thought it was appropriate to share a glimpse of the very early days. I had a lot of fun creating this spread, giving credit to what got me started all these years ago along with a bit of a showcase. It really is second rate, but I stopped drawing before I was any good, I was just a happy kid having a shot at something. Still, all these years later, this bug of mine (whatever it may be) is still there. I am taking photographs of beautiful women in Western outfits now, so a small part of that kid must still be alive in me somewhere.

RETROFUTURE 6 is pretty much done. It will be out in the summer.
