happy campers

Well I just finished my second summer of teaching art at camp, and it was really a lot of fun. During the first half of the day, I got to help my students develop their own awesome cartoon characters and then in the afternoon I took requests and did drawings for some of the kids in the other classes. Lucky for me, most of them wanted superheroes, but I did get in some good practice drawing characters from Magic the Gathering too (apparently it's as popular as ever these days). After a while, it occurred to me that I might post a few on my blog, so I scanned a couple before I gave them away. Also, the signatures were the kids' idea, and I was very flattered. I don't normally do a lot of fan art but I have to say, it's really fun. 

One little girl requested "owl man" so I drew the movie version of Nite Owl. If she was referring to the Watchmen, then that's one hip 4th  


  1. sounds like a great job! ...but dude...where are the happy circles and evil upside down triangles??

  2. I like your adaptation of Spidey. It's very neighborhood friendly. Also, only one request for Watchmen?
    Kids these days....
