2012 – DAY 05

All characters are created by my 5 year-old son, The Junior Partner.  He has either drawn these characters on his own and I have recreated them here, or he has sat at my elbow dictating design and conceptual ideas like a creative, but frenetic, taskmaster.


Fireburn is the son of a dragon who was supposed to help his father, an evil fire dragon, take over the world, but instead helps protect the earth from his father’s minions.  Fireburn is fireproof, of course, with a touch skin that makes him not only impervious to flame and heat but also other extreme temperatures and physical attacks.  His natural environment is a realm of fire, so his body temperature is so hot that he is constantly steaming and as he gets more frustrated or angry his body temperature increases causing combustion in the air around him if his anger level increases to an uncontrollable level Fireburn believes that if he lets his fire powers take control of him, he will be consumed by his on flames and be reborn as the dragon avatar his father wanted him to become.  His life is a battle against his father and his own inner-demons…literally.

Fireburn carries two rough iron swords that act as a natural ward against other demons as well as conductors of the mystic wards he has palced on himself to keep his powers in check.

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
