I drew this image of Reptiliman in 2003. I was revisiting the character and his skin-tight costume while studying human anatomy. The background image was drawn around the same time showing the living room in my first (and only) Manhattan apartment. My bedroom was literally the size of a twin bed, so my roommates allowed me to use part of the shared space as my office. The other side of this room can be seen in the collages 85TH ST APT 07 A & B, 85TH ST APT 07 A & B and 85TH ST APT 09.
The two images were collaged together in 2011 with some paint and additional ink. The green was added in 2015.
