"A man can't just sit around," Larry Walters told a reporter in July of '82 after taking a 45 minute flight in a lawn chair, three miles above Long Beach California.

I really like the final product - watched it taking shape in the discussion. nice work!

Oh man, looks like you totally beat me to it... 'spose I should check the forums more often. Great job, lots of 1982 babies 'round these parts.

Is it just me, or does this guy look like he came from Doonesbury?

I think it's just you... Though I can see some doonsebury-esqe qualities in the head, the linework style and body are completely different... no where close enough to imply plagarism. Maybe he lives in dunnesberry?

Had to google Doonesbury.

Please note the date. I'm 26. I haven't picked up a newspaper since middle school.

great. but he needs his pellet gun. that's how he planned (and tried, but failed) to descend.

Are you referencing the right guy? He did use the pellet gun to descend into power lines and then climbed down to safety and then was arrested.
