At first glance, the following drawings below don’t make any sense. They just look like drawings some drunk guy did. In fact, at first glance, you wouldn’t see something amazing in these images, right? They are not amazing images at all!

So in short, he really was badass.
Here are some of his other works:
And perhaps the closing punch in these images is this drawing of Darth Vader:
Oops. Here’s the negative version:
