The first scan isn't a prelim or a layout, it's my first version of the pencils, before I went in and made a few small changes like George's hair and eye color. It's also worth noting that this was drawn before I stumbled on my secret trick for drawing footwear. Nice lettering by the amazing Todd Klein. This was published back in 1986.
