Things to Come - Making the Transition to Long Pants

Here's a portrait of the artist as a young man - very young. A photo of Mike Trim at the ripe old age of 5 years old, outside the family home in Fulham, London. Yes, I know it's hard to believe that this image didn't make it into The Future was FAB: The Art of Mike Trim, but we had to include the one of him in his pedal car - that was non-negotiable!
Mike's obsession with Dan Dare and the art of Frank Hampson was only a year or two away when this photo was taken.

That's a great pic, must have been a nicer area than where I was brought up, I was smoking a pipe around that age.

Wow, Andrew - the stress of all that yardwork you must have been up to with your wheelbarrow must have been enormous! What exactly did you stick in your pipe and smoke?
Nice work on your art blog, let me know if you'd like to take a stab at modeling a vehicle from the project Mike and I are working on together.
And thanks for commenting!
