TEX PATROL - 20 years!

Here's a cool thing I did and I think everybody should do once, just for the fun of it.

When I was 7 in 1984, I had a group of "Super-Trained-Soldiers" called "TEX PATROL". Of course, based mostly on the G.I.Joe characters... I used to make comic books of the team as good as I could. It lasted 3 issues. Here's the cover of the #3.


Then, 13 years later, when I was 20, I did the same drawing again. Just to see how I had evolved. I didn't change anything, I chose to stick to the concept drawing of that 7yo kid.


Well, when I was 27, in 2004 I did it again. Surely there was a huge difference between them 3, and I think it's a very interesting way to capture the evolving process of my drawings in spaces of 10 years. The second one took a little longer, I shoul've done it in 1994 but I'll try to make the next one in 2014, and the chronology will be a little better.


Why don't you do the same? You just havo to redo a drawing from 10 years ago and make an appointment with yourself to redo the same drawing again in 10 years. C'mon... It's so EASY!

That looks like fun!
I liked how he looks to be in better balance with time. Ha
And the last one is pretty dramatic.

I'll try that sometime.

That's a great idea! You made me want to try that too!
I really like your art Marcelo. It really inspired me. I'm usually not a big fan of the super hero culture but I really enjoyed your take on it!
Have a great day, Seb

that is cool! redrawing the same drawing after several years and years again later on. Man, it is always cool seeing the evolution of skill.

Some have questioned whether this is a strategic decision to keep the PGA streak alive, since Tiger's never won the Nissan Open in the past (even though he's played there 11 times). fantasy golf Full story, The Golf Channel. Although the Dalys filed for divorce late last year, they are trying to work things out. Last week at the FBR Open near Phoenix, seven players, including John Daly and Kenny Perry, used the SuperQuad, and nine, including Fred Funk, used the Burner.
