29 Spindo Sword Fist by Beausephus + Son

CHARACTER NAME:  Spindo Sword Fist

DATE OF CREATION:  November 2011

CONCEPT:  “Spindo is a robot with swords that he can use as swords and then put n his arms and make them spin around shoot off at stuff.  But he really likes to spin the swords around and scare bad guys.  His eyes glow.”


My son came home from school with a small picture made by tracing geometric shapes that he turned into a robot super-hero character. He wanted me to draw it.  So I gave it a try and then he offered edits with such encouraging comments such as, “No, Daddy, you’re not good at this,”  and “That’s not good.  It’s supposed to look like this (insert sound effects made by a four year old imitating explosions and what he thinks sword spinning robots sound like).”

After many attempts, here is the final version of Spindo Sword Fist.  My son still wants me to change the eyes.


Thanks for checking out our stuff.

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
