an old Turtles group shot when i was 10 years old in 1990! those were the days.
note here that Raph was my favorite back then and was for many years, but i secretly harbored love for Leo and waffled between the two of them as my favorite Turtle (despite drawing the anti-Leo comic strip in ). i remember a couple kids in school made fun of me for liking Leo, so maybe that drummed it out of me. Leo is my favorite now, it just took me a long time to get to that place.
