Super Shredder!

TIME SPENT: ABOUT 5 HOURS

I was lucky enough to come across NECA’s Super Shredder action figure last week. Not only is it ridiculous that we’re getting toys of such niche interests but Shredder is so perfect that he works as a great drawing reference. And this was the result.

This is the first Kevin Nash action figure I’ve bought since 1998. And even though he has, like, 2 minutes of screen time…Super Shredder’s design is legendary cheese. I strayed away from my thin linework and went back to my heavy lines and shadows.

All in all, I had a fun time drawing him. I’ve been creatively bankrupt lately, so it was nice to draw something…and leave it to me to make it Ninja Turtles related. Prints are available at my store. But you probably already knew that. Cowabunga.

Time Spent: Around 3 hours

Pizza dude’s got 30 seconds…more like 30 years, Mikey. That’s how old the original Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles film is this week. Feels like yesterday when I’d pop in the VHS, hear that Pizza Hut little league commercial, and know I was about to have a blast. I still quote the movie almost daily. It’s simply ingrained in me.

But, most importantly, its shown me this is what “gettin’ old” feels like. As time passes, I’m feeling less like a Turtle Teen and more like Master Splinter. In another 30 years I’ll be in my 60s. Slow down, life. Maybe Mikey was on to something. 30 years did indeed feel like 30 seconds. Either way I hope I get my pizza on time.
