2012 – DAY 13

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.


After hearing about the playground game “four square” the Junior Partner got the idea that it should be played by guys with four arms and then as his imagination will often to, he started talking about the game of four square but with swords and four armed guys.  Soon the concept of the game disappeared and the idea of a four armed superhero with guns and knives stuck.  He dictated certain aspects (like the vest) but vetoed other idea…such as the use of squares anywhere in the motif.

So there’s not much really beyond the fact that this guy has four arms and bunch of weapons.

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
