Why I Love Superheroes

To be perfectly honest, when I was little I just really enjoyed the attire… photo Who says that it’s not appropriate daily-wear?! I was also a power ranger from time to time. Hopefully that’s more cute than it is embarrassing, although my poor Mother may not agree… or the nice people at Sainbury’s. Now that I’m older (but certainly not a grown up) the Marvel and DC film franchises have slowly but surely taken over!

Now I study the artwork and draw them a lot, especially for other people who share my love. I now have quite a vast selection of birthday cards and drawings, here are a few!

Colour aside, you can get so many elements across with confident line-work: texture, lighting, form and motion. I feel like producing work in that style is now reflected in my own, and I work so much more boldly than before. Screen Shot 2014-08-02 at 11.10.28 I suppose bravery pays off a lot of the time! Have you ever felt inspired by Superheroes? Fought for justice, adorned a cape, saved a life, avenged a death? I want to know! 😉
