Before there was Alcatraz High or 4 Gun Conclusion, there was the Enforcemen. This was my super hero group that I created when I was in high school. The date on the corner is December 1987! So this is truely a blast from the past. It was drawn with my first set of Rapidograph technical pens, which was a gift from my girlfriend. And as you can see I went absolutely nuts with it. I remember bringing this piece to the San Diego Comic Con 1988 and it was my main portfolio piece at the time. I still remember getting astounded reactions, one in particular was " Wow kid, you got alot of time!" and he was right, what else was I gonna do, I had NO CAR, so all I did was draw and this was my favorite piece I did at the time.
Looking at this piece, I am inspired by the amount of detail and the epic scope of the world. Not bad for a high school kid. I'm inspired to bring them back, I have story that I have been working on that would be perfect for them. In the months leading to Comic Con 2011, I will post updated designs. It's time to reboot the ENFORCEMEN and you guys have a peek into their very first incarnation.
