These images bring back bittersweet memories. I had gotten a plum job: In the mid 80's a company called First Team was hiring comic artist to do prints (high quality posters) of Marvel characters. Good pay, high prestige. But it was one of those times in a young artist's like when the highs and lows of a turbulent romance were playing havoc with his ability to produce. The folks at First Team were cutting me all sorts of slack but I just kept blowing the deadlines.
But I liked the idea a lot, Dr. Strange and his lithesome protege Clea, frolicking in some Ditkoesque dimension, the good doctor enchanting her a bit of stage magic from Vaudeville. Years later, I stumbled on the roughs and thought the idea was too good to go unused.
I simplified the composition, settled on doing it just in pencil, and sold the original at a convention (too cheaply!).
