Blast from the Past #271: World trees

There is no date on this drawing, but from the style I would guess that it is something I drew in the late 1970's or early 1980's. I can't recall why I drew it -- I don't think it was ever published.

I wonder if this piece was inspired by the concept of Yggdrasil, the "world tree" of Norse mythology, which I'm sure was mentioned from time to time in the "Thor" comics that Jack Kirby drew. -- PL

I hadn't heard of the concept of Yggdrasil before. You learn something new every day. Thanks,Peter!

I know the forever awesome Mr. Kirby inspired you,but who else inspired your talent?
