From my friend, the insightful, brilliant, and all-around kickass Jessica Baldanzi, I’ve (re)learned the joy of drawing our superhero selves. I like to do this every now and then, and the results are different depending on where I am at any given point in my life. I always discover something about myself in the process.
Today, this was my outcome.
I just put the drawing on top of my “To Do” stack, so now I’ll have to go through Superhero Me to get to item one. Shazam!
Try it yourself. It’s a fun way to wrap up the weekend and prepare for the week to come.
As Jessica says, you don’t have to be good at drawing – just have fun and don’t take too much time with it. If you feel brave and generous, share what you come up with in the comments. I’d love to see your results.
Speaking of Jessica, I highly recommend you head on over to her awesome blog about comics, graphic novels, teaching, and storytelling through image and word. As a theatre artist and writer myself, I’ve enjoyed exchanging ideas and learning from her on multiple levels. Theatre, graphic novels, and comics all use a combination of images and words to tell stories. Plus, the stuff she talks/writes about is just so freaking fun.
