X-Men was a big part of my childhood and teenage years. I especially loved watching X-Men: The Animated Series on TV and collecting X-Men trading cards. I have recently found this collage that I made during my early teens.
This is probably the first artwork that I have ever made. I had always mounted this illustration board on a wall near my study desk up to my college years. X-Men’s influence on my life extends to the present day, when we realize that gifted outcasts could very well be the heroes that we all need in a world gripped by fear, hate, prejudice, and constantly increasing threat of fascism.
