Stars 'n Stripes-Salvo one by DrewEdwardJohnson Stars 'n Stripes-Salvo one by DrewEdwardJohnson
I got interested in comics due to the media blitz of GI JOE #1 back in the '80's. The TV commercials blew my young mind, and the character paintings on the figure cards inspired me to want to draw these cool characters.
Here's a tip of the hat to that great card art--My fave Joes, Scarlett and Snake Eyes in their classic outfits now that I can draw a little better than I did back then.

ooh the classic Joe days. Love this piece! I'm so glad I just randomly stumbled across it.
I am trying to learn to color, and I was wondering if I could play with this piece? Is there a higher res available by any chance? If you want you can email me at jwvanderbeck AT gmail. If not, then I understand but I still love this piece :)

The uzis look like you could pluck them right out of the page! Awesome draftsmanship and composition on this piece.

You know, it’s so disappointing to see that the writers of the new GI Joe cartoon decided to not have Snake Eyes and Scarlett be together. These writers must really have something against these two being together. It seems that the comic book (main GI Joe world) and the live action movie are the only ones to have them together.
