2012 – Beausephus!

| October 8, 2012 | 0 Comments

Last year I used my obsession with my then recently acquired  iPad to draw more I had in years.  The ability to color, edit, and publish in a single sitting allowed me to actually productively create in the limited time I have to just sit down and draw.  My dormant deviantART page suddenly had life and the support of the community really convinced me to keep putting my doodles into the ether.

In the 2011 Challenge I combined original creations, versions of old childhood charters, and characters inspired by my 4 year old son’s imagination.  Well, that 4 year old is now a very creative and prolific 5.  He’s on the verge of writing and his artwork is pretty impressive especially even if judged solely on volume.  For the 2012 Challenge my son and I will be collaborating, creating a whole universe of heroes, villains, aliens, and monsters from the mind of a 5-year-old and then drawn by me.  I will try to include my son’s original versions of the characters, if they exist.  Sometimes he creates on his own, other times I act like a Police sketch artist, adding and changing concepts and details as he sits perched at my elbow.

He’s very excited to see his ideas put “on the computer” and I’m excited to have another impetus to create work for an actual audience.
