MY CHILDHOOD ARTWORK

My dad saved boxes full of art I made as a kid in the 70's - early 80s.

Age 7, 1978
A Showgun Warrior
When my parents gave me a Gaiking toy for Christmas I almost lost my mind, that thing was so cool- it seemed so gigantic and shooting the fist and missiles across the room never got boring.
I used to think I was alright at spelling, but I couldn’t even get Shogun Warrior right. This guy does look pretty tough with his knife but the goofy ears ruin the effect. The face and chest seem like my stock Stormtrooper look, so maybe that’s where this drawing was going at first. There’s tons of Stormtrooper drawings left to scan, so I’ll have to get started on Star Wars soon.
