From 1992, another archive "nugget" which shows the vulnerable mind of the 15-year old :) As in this post I showed, the movie Alien had a big impact on me.This little gouache painting is one of those rare ones that have sustained the the time better than the rest of my drawings from that period. It also shows me how little progress I have made...*sigh*.
Sci-fi and fantasy was close to my heart in general. The influence of Moebius is quite visible in these panels from a 10-page comic that I did probably a few years later. It appeared only in this little fanzine "Bigger Than Jesus" that my good friend (and mentor :) Mika Tossavainen and I compiled of our miscellaneous short stories. I think I have only one copy left of that somewhere. The panels are not continuous to each other, I just stumbled upon a scan of them two. (The alien's head shape appears also here on the character fighting on the balcony in the top left -corner of the left-most panel.)
I'm gonna take another long-due stab at doing some comics really soon...
