I Found My Brains!

I can't remember for sure, but I think this drawing was based upon my French teacher in High School. Not sure what the reference is to!


Back in High School, I used to draw Eddie, the mascot of the heavy metal band, Iron Maiden, in my notebook at school (and at home) a lot. Eddie was the creation of Derek Riggs, the very awesome painter who did all of Maiden's album covers. Eddie went through all kinds of changes, from the long haired version I was drawing here, to the lobotomized one, with shaved head, featured on 'Piece of Mind,'to the Deathlok styled sci-fi character from 'Somewhere In Time.' Here are a few of my old drawings, from 1983 and 1984.
