Here’s a relatively early piece of Trapezius Pepper artwork. Back in 2011, I was invited to put a piece in the Vancouver Comic Jam Art Show. I used the opportunity to explore the character of Trapezius and the type of situation he might get himself into.
I imagine most film noir fans will recognize the statue in the bear’s paws. For those who don’t, it’s from the 1941 film, The Maltese Falcon, starring Humphrey Bogart and based on the novel by Dashiell Hammett.
