Batwoman! by Cate (5), Grace (6) & Dad

Inspired by Kelly Thompson’s piece on the end of Greg Rucka’s run on Batwoman and the Batwoman request over at Project: Rooftop, I decided to go for Batwoman when it was my night to pick  — to some “interesting” results that may help some of you out there.

Cate went right to work on her piece. Knocked it out and moved on. Grace got stuck on Batwoman’s mask … and went through draft after draft. She was really frustrated. Despite my (repeated) suggestions we take a night off … she drew through tears. Finally, I got out a light box to help her out with a little tracing. She got it done, but after much consternation and many more than 5 minutes. But, she was happy with the result.

When it was over and she’d calmed down, we talked about the fact that 5 Minute Marvels was supposed to be about spending time together and having fun. And, it is. If it ain’t … pencils down

    Thanks for the link – and the kind words as always! And for the Project Rooftop shout out – what they’re doing over there is AMAZING. I loved this week of Batwomans.

    I’m sorry to hear that Grace had a rough drawing night, but make sure to let her know that even the best of the best have bad days. It’s great that you were able to remind her that it’s fun first and foremost…but it’s also great that you were able to help her work through her drawing until she was a bit satisfied with it. Success all around I say!
