Paint & Pixel is thrilled to welcome featured guest, Peter Laird!
A Massachusetts native, Peter Laird was born in 1954 in North Adams and received his BFA in Printmaking from the University of Massachusetts in 1976. Shortly thereafter, he began his professional illustration career. His first self-published comic book work was Barbaric Fantasy (1975), eventually followed by his first profitable self-published comic book work, Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles, which Peter co-created in 1984 with Kevin Eastman. Peter is best known for his work on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles in its many forms, from comics to movies to animation to toys. Outside of the TMNT universe, Peter has also worked on other comic projects including Stupid Heroes and Planet Racers (with Jim Lawson).
Peter will be selling black and white prints from his “Treefaces” portfolio. More information on Peter and his work on his blog.
