Sandi: Did Elvis draw?

Post by Swingin-Little-Guitar-Man »

Did he ever, like some of us do, draw pictures? Nothing major, just cartoons for fun, or little sketches? Be really cool to see something of this nature!

I'm wondering how good he was at Tic-Tac-Toe.

I have some info for you little swinger.
At age 17, Elvis went to the New York offices of
comicbooks publisher Timely, later known as
Marvel comics. He tried for a job on drawing
Captain Marvel jr comics. His drawing talents had
the Timely editors in awe... But they didnt go for
Elvis' idea of adding a guitar to jr's gadgets.
Neither did they think the miracle word "Shazam"
should be replaced by "Holy Ducktail !"
Thus ended Elvis his dreams of becoming a
comicbook illustrator.
True story.

Glad you liked my little "true story".
Remember me Sandi, Ger Rijff from Amsterdam?
We exchanged letters back in the 80s...
Still have that photo of you, somewhere, with ST
in a little boat on the water...
Just wanted to say hi to you here. I dont read the
posts . Having read a few was enough to run
screaming away from my pc... Having said that,
its nice of you to share memories and answer
questions... You is sweeeet !
Kus, en liefs uit tulpen land.

He did drawings on the charts of the stars in the sky though, didn't he? I mean... astrology wise.
