Here's some ancient stuff (remember this Lee?).
About a billion years ago I was playing with this character called Onionhead.
The film Edward Scissorhands was very popular a few years previous.
It's about a sweet, innocent character who was built by a kindly inventor who dies before he can finish building him.
I stole from that and created this character who'd lived a similar existence, but instead of living a life of sweetness and innocence, he's a naughty, violent, unpredictable wild child.
I did a follow up to this one with much, MUCH better drawings called Onionhead on Holidays but they're all in a shed in Australia which makes them hard to scan.
Anyone who's familiar with my work can glance at this and see that I've been redoing the same stuff over and over and over again since high school.
I photocopied a couple of hundred of these little books and as far as I know this is the only one left.

He can be friends with Dilworth's Garlic boy. Love your illustrations as always. Amazing stuff!
