For those who were a kid in the 90’s it’s hard to forget one of the greatest TV shows ever: The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles!
The characters were created by Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird and it didn’t started as a TV show. It started as a comic book in 1984 and today you can find these heroes in a half shell in all sort of media, from TV shows to video games and movies. It even had an on stage musical! That’s how great they were.
Last year (2014 if you weren’t aware) it was the Turtles 30th anniversary and I though it was something that couldn’t be ignored here in Portugal. So I decided to create a tribute page and gathered several artists to help me do it. Each illustrator will be drawing a different character from the TMNT universe and this way we will try to remember as many characters as possible.
It’s also a way to show how many talented people we have here in Portugal, some more well known than others but all equally great.
The tribute will end with an exhibit in this years Beja’s comic festival in Portugal. I don’t know the date yet but it will probably be around May or June. I’ll confirm this date when I know more about it.
So, you can find the tribute page here: www.facebook.com/TMNTPortugalTribute and I invite you to visit and like it if you have a facebook account. Help me spread the word!
I’ll leave you with the illustration I did for Michelangelo. Hope you like!
