I know it's been quiet again, but life is crazy. I'm getting famous in Northern Europe as the official Dutch Lucky Luke, traveling and visiting Comic Cons. So hunting online for TMNT people and writing them isn't really a priority anymore. Fortunatly another TMNT artist came to one of those Comic Cons, in Brussels this time. And it was none other then Simon Bisley who worked with Kevin on the Body Count comics!
I asked for a quick pencil sketch since he was booked with commissions and he made me an awesome 10 by 16 Raphael bust which you can see in the Artists alley here
. Got his picture
too :D He is just an awesome dude! So glad I met him.
September 29, 2018:
Alright! Finally got my signed photo of Paige Turco from the London Film & ComicCon. I still needed one from the third movie
The cool news from today is that I went to a Comic Con in Belgium called FACTS. And David Tennant was there. You all know him as Doctor Who, but he also voiced professor Zayton Honeycutt a.k.a. The Fugitoid in the Nickelodeon 2012 series
It was great meeting him! He was sincere, nice and awesome. And according to him he signed his first Fugitoid photo. The autograph is in the Nick section and some cool pictures can be found on this page
July 27, 2018:
New update! A friend of mine went to the London Film and Comic Con to get a sketch from TMNT artist Lee Bradley. He made a great Raphael for me which is in the Comicbook artists
Paige Turco was there too, but I'll receive that photo soon.
June 15, 2018:
Wow just received an envelope in my mailbox with a signed photo that I did not expect. It's gotta be about 3 years since I last tried, but I got my photo back signed by Vanilla Ice from Turtles II: Secret of the Ooze
I tried sending this picture a few times and it finally payed off :D
April 15, 2018:
I just updated my Props page
with 3 new items! An official Jim Henson Productions crewcap, a Creatureshop crewcap and the original script from the first movie (insert fangirly squeel here)! How did I get these item? I'll post that story soon on my EVENTS page!
April 07, 2018:
I still love to get original sketches from TMNT artists, but it had been a while. Fortunatly Michael Dialynas came to Europe.
He drew the Turtles for the IDW comic run and I love his style! He made me a great Raphael bust which you can see in the Artists alley here
April 03, 2018:
Yes I am still alive! And yes I'm still a full fled TMNT fan, but when you suddenly become the official flesh and blood version of a famous European comicbook character called Lucky Luke, life can get a bit hectic. Nevertheless I still was able to finally meet Dwight Schultz again after 18 years. And as you may or may not know he voiced Wyrm in the Nickelodeon 2012 series
. So of course I brought a picture of Wyrm. He was pleasantly surprised!
October 10, 2017:
Today is my birthday, and how how awesome is it that when you open your mailbox you find an autograph from the person you've been trying to find for the 11 years collecting TMNT autographs. Jay Patterson, Charles Pennington from the original TMNT movie sent my photo back signed!! You can see it on the original 90's movie autograph page
. Such an awesome birthday present!
September 31, 2017:
Yay! Finally been able to get in contact with Thomas K. Gray, the producer of all the classis TMNT movies. He was quite impressed with the collection and sent me an exclusive photo of his own from the set of TMNT III. You can see the piece on Turtles III autograph page
Really cool to finally have the producer.
September 15, 2017:
It's been quiet, but I got something quite cool (for a true TMNT fan that is). It's an actual piece of wood from the farmhouse where the Turtles retreat after their first defeat. Pretty special since the house is quite old already and it's still being used for filming. You can see the piece on my props page
May 30, 2017:
It's been quiet, but I'm still hoping to get some pictures back before I start trying new ones. That said I received a new one today! Gianpaolo Bonaca played a very young Foot soldier in TMNT: Secret of the Ooze
You can see him in the scene where the Foot soldiers regroup at the Junkyard. He says: "Well maybe they didn't find us!" He signed and inscribed my picture from that scene!
April 08, 2017:
Justin van der Lek is a Dutch VFX artist and he worked on many Hollywood movies including Ninja Turtles. I couldn't make it, but my dad got me his autograph. Justin MoCapped Mikey in the flashback scene and you can find the autograph in the Ninja Turtles 2014 movie

I went to FACTS, a Belgian Comic Con. Among the artists was Ferran Rodriguez. He drew for the Nick TMNT comic magazine. Of course I asked for a Raphael sketch, which you can find in the TMNT artists
section. I hope a TMNT actor will come to a local convention some day!

I sent out about 3 batches of pictures in the last 3 month and I finally received another one! And I've been searching a while for this particular autograph. Jim Raposa played Donatello in Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles III
and after I finally spoke with him, he was more than happy to sign my photo and included a nice letter
. Now I finally have all the Turtle suit and voice actors from the third movie!

OMG! How to get a rush after 10 years of TMNT Autograph collecting?
Just get an envelope in your mailbox and find out it's from the voice actress you've been trying to reach for 10 full years with no luck...untill today. After pretty much a dozen attempts to contact Tress MacNeille, she sent my Kala the Nutrino and Tempestra photos back signed, inscribed and with character name! Her autograph is finally in my collection. So happy! They are of course in the 80's cartoon
autograph section. Little bonus; I have all 3 Nutrinos now!
April 10, 2016:
It took me a while because I wanted to make good studio photos of the other items as well, but I finally updated my PROPS
section. Go see, and I'm hoping I'll someday obtain more TMNT movie/TV props.
April 09, 2016:
Wow, at the very beginning of the new Nickelodeon series back in 2012 I asked character designer Jose Garibaldi if I could have a sketch. He was cool with it, but is also a very busy guy. This afternoon I found a package in my mailbox from him! He sketched me a very cool Muckman and Joe Eyeball, one of the characters he re-designed for the current show. I love it and it was quite a surprise to suddenly get it. It can be found in the Nickelodeon series
autograph section at the bottom. A little thank you note can be found in the LETTERS/GIFTS section under 'notes'.

After close contact with his agency (they were very nice and kept me up-to-date about the photos I sent) I received my pictures of Bebop/Anton Zeck back signed by J.B. Smoove. He signed them lovely and even included a picture of himself. The Bebop and Anton Zeck pictures can be found in the Nickelodeon series

Great additions if I say so myself.
In other news. I was going to meet Sean Astin this saturday at a comic con, but as you all may have read, his mother Patty Duke passed away last Tuesday so of course he's not attending. My thoughts go out to him and his family. I hope to meet him in August of this year.

A special autograph landed in my mailbox today! A year ago I wrote Michael Edens. He wrote some of the 80's cartoon episodes and I choose a nice titlepage of 'Mutagen Monster' I noticed on the page that Mark Edens also co-wrote it, so I asked if he was able to have his brother sign it too. He's still very busy writing scripts and doesn't see his brother a lot so it took a full year, but I got it back double signed!
