Day 19 | Frankenfighter

2012 – DAY 19

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.


In his growing appreciation for Halloween and monsters, the Junior Partner discovered the various classic movie monsters.  He sort of gets the concept fo Frankenstein but it cemented for him when he saw an image of the FRANKENSTEIN AGENT OF SHADE comic in an ad in a comic I was reading.  He wanted his own version of a Frankenstein monster superhero, but he wanted it “more freaky.”  I suggested something more Dr. Moreau…gorialla arms or something, but that was ignored.  After a few ideas I suggested a gigantic arm with a huge knife.  That was it and boom…Frankenfighter.

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
