Steve Lavigne has been working on Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles (TMNT) since 1985. He went to high school with Kevin Eastman and was the first artist employee to be hired by Eastman and Laird.
Fun fact: Michelangelo’s personality is based on Steve.
Steve began as letterer for the early Mirage books (Vol 1 No 5). Soon thereafter, he colored covers for Mirage Studios as well as most of the TMNT Archie series covers and graphic novels. He later became Licensing Art Director and was responsible for a vast majority of licensing, product, packaging art. Whether it was wallpaper border, bedding, Burger King cups, video game boxes, he was likely to have worked on it. He created some characters including Code Name Chameleon, Sgt Bananas and Cuddly Cowlick, among others.
Steve has recently drawn and colored IDW collected series covers, as well as the new Topps Trading Cards. He has Instagram and a Facebook page under the name Shellback Artworks, whereby fans may see current work projects, order commissions or purchase some vintage TMNT products.
