AL WILLIAMSON TRIBUTE by tom fowler


some of my fondest childhood memories are stealing the sunday paper from my dad to pour over williamson's star wars strip. i cannot hope to match his ability or facility with brush or quill (especially in the time i'd given myself for this drawing) so i've fallen back on the subject matter that drew me to him in the first place.

NOBODY drew a dude with a gun on a lizard like Al.



***also, please go and take a look at the gorgeous al williamson tribute drawn by my good friend craig taillefer over at his site.

That lizard is great, Tom, especially in the way he's staged.
