2012 – DAY 27

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.


Raised in the Jungle buy a tribe of natives and sentient tigers, Tigerboy is the recipient of a a amgic amulet and armor that gives him superhuman tiger-based powers.  The armor used to be a whole, intricate suit of armor made from mystic materials, but after centuries and misuse by a previous recipient, the armor is only in pieces. The only piece he is able to wear, as he is a boy, is a small section that fits on his arm (again, a one-armed armor motif that we both seem to appreciate).  Tigerboy is learning to use his powers and as he grows so to will his abilities and his ability to wear more armor.  Tigerboy fights evil in the jungles and offshoots tribes and monsters who are trying to destroy the talking tigers and the clan of magicians determined to protect them and the jungle itself.

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
