Some of these numbers have handwritten notes, including "Ink Hair, Ink Of Features, Sepia Ink Face & Hands" and "Ink Rest Of Body - No Ink Modeling." Additionally, to right of art is handwritten color notes regarding the coloring of Superman's iconic "S" symbol. Below this is note reading "Oked By Dave," a reference to Fleischer Studios cartoon director and co-owner Dave Fleischer.
