Nigel Lister – Chartered Accountant of the Future


This was my loving homage to the work of Frank Hampson, artist of Dan Dare in the Eagle, a long-running British comic for boys in the 50s and 60s. 

I slavishly copied the artwork from an old Eagle Annual that I’d bought from a jumble sale for 20 pence. This was in the winter of 1991 (hence the obscure reference to the band Nirvana), when I was on the dole and had both the time and inclination to do such a thing.

Tragically, I sold all my Eagle Annuals (I had no’s 1,3,4 and 5) on ebay in the winter of 2011 when I was again on the dole and reduced to selling my precious things, one by one, just to make ends meet.
