Day 84: Ninja Turtles: They Live in the Sewers, Yo!
I don't know where this one came from. I just decided to draw what I think of as an iconic image of the Ninja Turtles. I believe this image really started with the marketing from the first movie, but it's so perfect. I just love the shot of a turtle peeking his head out of an open New York City manhole cover. He's a protector of the city, but he's also kind of a monster and this is a little bit of a creepy shot. Either way it really engrained the image of New York City manhole covers in my mind. That's why I was so excited to see them when my wife, brother-in-law and I took a day trip to New York last summer.
