Flash Gordon

Flash Gordon 1/26/2003 – Photo Reference

Today’s Flash Gordon strip (5/17/2015) originally ran on January 26, 2003.


Here’s some photo reference I took at the time with me (in a bathrobe) as Ming, and my wife’s nephew Chris as Flash Gordon




As an artistic choice, I opted against using the kids’ letter mat as reference and put in some skeletons instead that more fit the mood I was going for.
