Gerhard's Photos: Hawaii 1988 (3)

GERHARD:
I did a lot of snorkelling in Hawaii, and I made it part of my morning routine. (No, those aren’t fart bubbles.) So Dave included an underwater scene in the pages we were working on at the time.
Cerebus #95 (February 1987)

Gerhard provided background art to Dave Sim's cast of Cerebus characters between issue #65 (August 1984) and #300 (March 2004) - contributing to over 4,700 pages of comic art, as well as numerous Cerebus covers and illustrations. Keep up to date on all of Gerhard's current projects at his blog and website, including details of his new book, The Wish.

Those pages from 95 always reminded me of that famouns Ditko Spider-Man issue. Beautiful!

If this issue was published in Feb '87 and the photos were taken in 1988 then presumably Gerhard must have gone snorkelling sometime before these photos were taken in order to inspire Dave to do illustrations of Cerebus underwater (or the dates are wrong) :-)
