Very Old Doodles and Sketches and stuff 1…
Sketches I did back on my army days or earlier back in the late 80s early 90s perhaps…

I found an old folder with some small scans of a few images of mine done more than 25 years ago most of them. I was trying to find the old pics to do a better scan but I don´t have time right now. Nevertheless I wanted to showcase here this stuff as it´s a good depiction of not only my love for fantasy landscapes and for creating fantasy worlds either related to children book material or simply as concept art doodles and color tests.
Some of these images go way back before 1992 of course at the time I was with the army and many of these “epic” landscapes were sketched in small sheets of paper I had around at my HQ back then, some on the back of anything I could find.
Here it goes, sorry about the image sizes but it´s what I could find.

Of course a lot of these was way before digital; ( yes kids, no phones, apps, social media or wifi ); at the time the most advanced computer had been the Sinclair ZX SPECTRUM a few years back and so when I created most of these images I never even could dream that one day I would be sharing them with the world in a sci-fi thing called THE INTERNET.
So here they go. I have a lot more in my physical paper archives but I need to find and scan them. Maybe one of these days I´l start remaking some of these landscapes just for fun.

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “DRACKON DAS ESTRELAS – COMICS” ( 1984 – 14 years old )

LOST IN SPACE art museum-logo

Just to scare some more potential clients away, here´s one of my old and first tries at creating comics when I was a kid. This was done around 1984 when I was barely 14 years old and it´s “my famous” incomplete scifi-story; this because I never got to finish the album. I did 40 hand drawn pages for about three or four months but there is one I never got to complete the inking process to this day and it has remained like that for 34 years. Maybe one of this days I´ll finish this project.
This was really a compendium of everything that I loved and inspired me when I was 14 in sci-fi. So there´s a character with “Apollo´s” hair from Galactica, there´s a space mercenary because Han Solo was my favorite hero back then, there´s an alien cantina and all sorts of things, the story starts like in Superman the Movie, etc.
This is how my artwork looked like when just turned 14, back in 1984.

One particular detail is that even back then I didn´t wanted to copy the super-hero american comics style and what I always loved was to read real science fiction or stuff that was not connected to super heros. So this comics reflect all that and even have a touch of Space 1999 in them too.
So… enjoy… I guess…

 

MUSEUM : Drawings from when I was a kid – “INFINITY STARSHIP” ( 1983 / 13 years old )

LOST IN SPACE art museum-logo

I created these back in 1983 when I was 13 years old.
Long before the internet, long before video-games, even before VHS or Home-Video, we only had two things to help us make us dream about the stars. Either we went to the movies ( and there weren´t many out there about space exploration done properly ) or we stayed at home, read books, comics or watched “SPACE 1999” on TV when it was on.

To me “SPACE 1999” was the main thing where I kept getting inspiration for my attempts at creating my own artwork and so this drawings you see below not only were my attempt to create something like a starship similar to Moon-Base-Alpha in concept ( mixed with 60s Star Trek ) but what you are looking at are also my first attempts to learn how to use color pencils.


Since I was a kid , I didn´t cared about creating characters and I always wanted to design the imaginary worlds they lived in instead. So at my 13 years of age this was another of my attempts to create something based on scenery and atmosphere. I remember I had a ton of fun dreaming about these corridors and rooms and this little project of mine was also the start for me in trying to learn about perspective.
I had no access to books, art schools or reference material at all these days and so these drawings came only from my imagination ( reading a lot of sci-fi novels at the time also helped ).

I hope you enjoyed this brief example of what type of pics I was doing when I was 13 years old. More drawings and comics from when I was a kid to come in the future.
As the great Criswell used to say in “PLAN 9 FROM OUTER SPACE”: – “Future events such as these, will afect you in the future.”

 

 

OLD COMICS PROJECT: Emil i Lönneberga ( Emilio of Lonneberg )

OldWork-logo

Wow, now, this is a really old one too.
Another from the days long before I went digital.
This one was a fast and simple Comics adaptation for the classic storybook Emilio of Lonneberga by swedish author, Astrid Lidgren, and it was created for a portuguese revival project which tried to present this classic Sweedish book to new generations.
To complement the whole thing a new Portuguese audio-book was also created at the time and so if you understand Portuguese, you can still listen to it online here ( narrated by Rui Unas ):
