One of the most entertaining Web sites on the net is Project: Rooftop, an amazing creative blog where artists redesign costumes for famous superheroes. They frequently hosts contests to see who can do the best job breathing new creative life to an iconic costume. This time it’s Captain America. And, Grace wanted to take a shot at it.
I am a little frightened about how tied into deep Southern culture Grace tied Cap, from the American flag trucker hat to the camo pants and the freakin’ cannon she gave him.
Me? Well, I went a little odd. Although Project: Rooftop’s artists clearly take amazing amounts of time with their work, Grace and I stayed true to our 5 minute sketches (although adding color put an extra 5 on it for me). I decided to draw Cap in a motorist get-up from the early 20th century … tying Cap into the old Trustbusting days. With all the hits corporate America is taking, why not have Cap make a statement and go after the Fat Cats? (Okay, I admit it … I just really didn’t have a vision on this one. 🙂 )
