15 – Dr. Pinkbot by Beausephs+Son

| November 15, 2011 | 1 Comment





CONCEPT:  ”Dr. Pinkbot is a bad robot who was made into a good guy.  He makes swords and stuff like Green Lantern.”


So when the mood strikes my son (and that is quite often) and he wants to make up “superguys”, “superdudes”, “supermans”… I pull out a bunch of templates I made for him and he picks out everything from the style of boots to the color scheme of the various costume options presented before him.  I then draw quick sketch, and he edits, adds, etc…  I then draw up the character and he hangs them in his room…if they meet his ultimate judgement.  Then I make him come up with a story for each character.




DR. PINKBOT is another member of my kid’s superhero team- The Amazing Justice Squad of Superheroes.   The good doctor is actually an evil robot that was turned good by the heroes and ow he serves them as the “guy who fixes them up and makes their stuff for them.”  Dr. Pinkbot (whose credentials seem spotty at best given his title) also creates energy constructs a la Green lantern, but instead uses pink energy that he projects from his hands and eyes.  My son indicates that it was because his powers are pink that he was easy for the superheroes to beat and turn into a good guy.  My son is clearly going through the “pink is icky” stage, and yet, he likes Dr. Pinkbot more and more everytime he spins a superteam tale.


Thanks for checking out our stuff.  My son is really enjoying seeing his ideas on the computer.

About the Author ()

Teacher, Playwright, Performer & Superhero Enthusiast. My first crayon drawings were of Superman and Captain America. I always wanted to draw comics but never followed that passion beyond some self-published zines and forays into early internet comics. I've worked in various aspects of graphic design and fooled around with a spray can at various stages of my life, keeping my pen busy and full of various inspirations for the doodles in the margins of my notebooks. Inheriting an iPad changed my productivity with the ability to draw, edit, color and post onto the internet via one device in the limited time I have to mess around with my doodles and drawings. My 5-year-old son is my biggest fan and the main reason for my artistic renaissance. He's the reason I'm drawing more often and the person I draw the most for. For the 30 CHARACTERS challenge this year, he is my co-conspirator and collaborator. His excitement and innocent love of superheroes and drawing has kept my inner cynic/critic at bay and we are having a blast this year making up a whole new universe of heroes, robots and monsters for the internet. -updated Oct. 2012
