Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, April 14, 1991

This was the highlight of my young life (and I’m still proud of it). I drew this picture of Michaelangelo and submitted it to the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles syndicated comic strip. They would sometimes publish fan art on Sundays, and this Sunday, April 14th, 1991, my dream of getting my art in every paper around the country came true. The coolest part is that the art was supposed to be hand picked by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird, the creators of The Turtles, so it was an honor to have them view my art at age 9.
