Radge Dalbot was spawned as a bit of folklore by some of the older guys at the old workshop at Rapide Sheet Metal. I can only remember that they used him as a hero figure for us young'ns. Those were the days, back in the nineties! I drew him out of a mix of those old guys, they stick in the memory because they had character.
In a small shop everyone has a role and personality, and a space to let this ferment, into what you might call eccentric behavior. It was a lot of fun!
