Cleaning out my flat-files…and there it is, Epic 66 from The Men Are From Mars series. I remember drawing my model Tom Ray and realizing how with a plastic sword in hand this middle aged man summoned the kid/hero in himself. He could slay dragons and foes just like the little pirate that lives down the street.
“I have learned that what I have not drawn, I have not really seen, and that when I start to draw an ordinary thing, I realize how extraordinary it is.” – Frederick Franck
Yup. Franck is totally right. Drawing is a magical revelation.
