When was this drawn and in what context, Tim?

I'd have to pull out my copy, but I think it was for Tucci's Shi: Senryaku (sp?) specials, where Tucci got a bunch of creators to do pinups of his characters. I'm not sure if this is the piece in there, but I doubt Dave did more than one piece for it. Probably about '95-ish.

You know, looking at it again, I have to say it looks like Dave did an homage to Gene Day's work on MOKF, especially in the inking...

Thanks Travis! Post updated.

I am both pleased and disturbed with myself ;) that I was able to pull this out (both the spelling of the special and the year) without looking anything up. Go me!
