Hanging In The Smithsonian


Something I’d completely forgotten that I found in a box yesterday. It’s the December 1992 issue of SMITHSONIAN Magazine that used my cover painting from TEENAGE MUTANT NINJA TURTLES #25 to illustrate an article on the TURTLES as a marketing phenomena. The SMITHSONIAN reported that in 1992 “Ninety percent of American boys between ages 3 and 8 own at least one Turtle figure.”
