We all start somewhere! – A Post A Day – Day 5

…oh boy…!  (O-o)

I found this in my archives not long ago.

An X-Men mini comic I drew as a little kid back in 1985! YIKES! Scary!!

I used to draw Marvel characters and make little mini comics when I was a kid.  Please don’t laugh at how bad this is… we all have to start somewhere, don’t we?  ;) HA! HA! HA!

Besides as far as the X-Men are concerned, I’d like to think I’ve gotten better at drawing them over the years!

The lesson in all of this: Practice may not make perfect… but hopefully, it makes a bit better!  LOL! :oD

See ya all tomorrow, my friends!

  1. So lovely! That was a good start! I love the little Spiderman on the bottom right corner! He’s so cute! I have some old things like this somewhere in my room, and on my computer’s hard drive!

  2. What a find! It’s always interesting to see how proffesionals started out. As a boy almost the only thing I used to draw was cars, I still have some old drawings of me lying around which I did when I was about eight or so.

    You should actually redraw that cover, it will make for a nice and interesting comparison.

    Your Colossus drawing was soooo sexy. Thanks.

  4. D’awww ! Are you kidding us ? It’s not horrible, it’s adorable !

    I love to look back at really old drawings, I mean you were a kid, you still believed everything was possible at that time !

  5. Leon/UrbanMusiq says

    OMG Mr.P! ur Strom fan art is AWESOME!! heheh cute little 1985 Comic!!


  6. Nothing to laught about, it’s cool that you still have those. I lost my first drawings a long time ago… i regret it a lot, now !

  7. Awe I love the little comic you drew! It’s so cute! Did you draw a whole comic? You should post it for fun. :P Your Storm back then was so cute! Very inspiring.

  8. Hello Nicolas…

    thanks buddy! I’m so glad you enjoyed this post. And I loved seeing your older artwork too! I appreciated you sharing it with me a great deal!

    Hugz + kisses,

  9. Hello Reikro…

    What a great idea! I think it really would be pretty cool to re-draw this cover in my modern-day style! I’ll certainly post it here if I get around to it.

    And I think it’s so cool you have some of your childhood drawings of cars still. I have actually lost a lot of my older drawings over the years. I think they are definitely worth hanging on to.

  10. Hello Rio…

    Awww — thanks so much. I’m glad you like my take on Peter. He was a blast to draw!

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  11. Hello my dear Gâ-L…

    You are always so sweet to me! HA! HA! HA! Thanks so much for the kind words. You know, you’re right. Back then I did think anything was possible. I wanted to draw comics when I’d grow up… and I guess some childhood dreams really can come true.

    erm… although I have yet to gain the ability to control the elements like Storm!!! LOL! :o)

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  12. Hiya Leon…

    LOL! Thanks so much, my friend. Although I think I still prefer my “current” drawing of Storm a bit better! LOL! ;)

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  13. Hi Logan…

    Thanks so much buddy! You know, I understand what you mean. I lost most of my childhood drawings over the years too… .that’s why I was pretty surprised to find this one.

    Would any of your relatives have any of your childhood drawings they could give you back? I know a bunch of my aunts and uncles must have some of my old art… you never know! :o)

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  14. Hello Dinosaurprince…

    Thanks so much, good buddy! I’m so pleased you enjoyed this little posting. I did indeed draw the whole comic. I’ll see about scanning it and posting the whole thing at some point. It could be really fun! LOL!

    Hugz + kisses,
    Patrick XOXO

  15. I remember that issue! :) You should see how bad my X-Men stuff was from back then.
