the Explorers

The Explorers 11×14

Sometimes the only thing we needed growing up was a couple of card board boxes. Those boxes could take us anywhere and many times those adventures were pretty dang fantastic. I know there is a little of me in here, especially with the need to have a realistic working cockpit. It was adventures like these that allowed our imaginations to soar. It’s our imaginations that let us explore new places, solve complex problems and even bring¬† a little peace in a very mixed up world. So remember don’t be afraid to play a little and keep creating.


As promised I am trying really hard to bring a little more love to my site here. Give you art while we wait for comic page updates. Hopefully there will be something everyday here to take you away.

I like how they are putting alien technology onto a cardboard shell

    You have to do what you have to do to make those ships go fast.

Oh man, that takes me back. Reminds me of the 80's movie of the same name,

Who didn't build a spaceship of their own growing up?

    I never what was better building the ship or where the ship took us. Sometimes I think building it was far more adventurous –

    as for the movie- i have never seen it… I might have to take a moment and watch it. I know, I know, it was an 80's flick but when it came out i was a teen and it seemed a little young for me then.

      I hope you do! I was the perfect age to enjoy it in the 80's. Stirs up some pretty powerful memories for me. Obviously since it was one of those movies that stuck with me.
      I imprinted on movies, cartoons and books pretty hard from ages 4 to 12.
