Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (w/ Steve Lavigne)

November 9, 2016
Join Scott as he welcomes a very special guest to the show: an artist, illustrator and letterer for the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, (and a guy described as the inspiration for the character Michelangelo), Steve Lavigne! Listen as Steve talks about the early days of the Turtles, from working with creators Kevin Eastman and Peter Laird out of his apartment, to seeing the underground comic book expand to include a popular toy line and animated series, all within a span of three years! He'll also share some stories from the set of of the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles feature film, including getting to meet the great Jim Henson! From working on TMNT comics, and action figure designs, to creating most of the licensing art you've seen on your favorite Turtle products, and owning and operating the great store and gallery, Shellback Artworks, Steve has been involved in all things TNMT for decades! So sit back, grab yourself a slice (hold the anchovies, dude!) and listen to a great conversation about everyone's favorite Turtles! Cowabunga!
