I first drew a man in a lizard suit in college and called him Nonmemaga. While in graduate school, I revisited the character in a series of sketches. This particular sketch inspired panel 3 from page 13 in my 2009 comic Flying Solo. The background is an image of clouds I made for the panels on page 12 of the same comic.
The two images were collaged together in 2011 with some white paint and some additional ink.
In 2021, I renamed the character Reptiliman. I’m currently developing his story to work as a lead-in to The Amazing Adventures of Awesome and Oops.
