Over this hiatus I’ve done a lot of art therapy for fun. I’m not an artist by any stretch, but I do enjoy making things, however good or bad I am at it. I’ve worked up graphics for my portfolio, applied to jobs, and actually done no writing. It was kind of nice to have my brain not overworking itself creating something for a moment. But then the Youngest wanted help in creating a superhero for Pop Culture Classroom’s contest at Denver Comic Con. He was really interested, but his attention strayed because…he’s eight. We decided to work on our separate computers on the Marvel website to create a base for a character that we would design and come up with a backstory for, and hopefully end with a comic.
While his mind wandered to something else, I found myself consumed over the past 36 hours with creating this character. I’ve never felt so desperate to make a character happen. Of course I have no idea how to go about making her come to life because she fits into a universe that is established and copyrighted, but here she is.
