Grace and I had so much fun drawing Fashion Kitty by Charise Mericle Harper the other night that we decided to take on FK’s arch-nemesis … FASHION QUEEN! And, to make this an ever more awesome experience, we were joined by the incredibly talented Tara Abbamondi.
Tara has been a huge fan of 5MM and, in turn, we are massive fans of her site www.GingerCurls.Wordpress.com — home of the soon-to-be-published graphic novel, “Puddles.”
Tara takes commissions and does truly beautiful work. Check her out. You won’t be disappointed.
Okay … so this drawing is amazing. A few weeks ago, Grace and I were contacted from across the pond by Mark Hughes of the Swansea Comics Collective. Mark and his kids will soon offer their work, but, to tide us over, he sent this terrific Son of Krypton.
Grace got a Tint Titans book at the library featuring the incredible work of Art Baltazar and his team at Electric Milk creations … so, to the pencils we flew to draw Wonder Girl and Super Girl!

It was a real joy today to get new art from a father and daughter due from Toronto — Nicole and Charlie. The art itself is brilliant (Nicole’s blue and red gloves is VERY fashion forward — looking toward the new Spidey movie), but it also came with the cutest video where sister Naomi decided that maybe 5 minutes was too much time to devote. Hilarious! Thanks, guys. Don’t be strangers.
Several weeks ago, talented cartoonist and blogger Cathy Leamy approached us with an offer to draw Starman with us. So we decided to make it a family affair with three generations of cosmic heroes.
Cathy, thanks for drawing with us. It was a lot of fun. And, all you readers head over to Cathy’s site and enjoy her work — www.MetroKitty.com
UPDATE! A word from Kathy Leamy …
The Wahl Family (and Friends) keep the wagon train rolling … this time at the speed of lightning. This is some truly inspired work — from Maddy’s drawing of Impulse hitching a ride … to Erin’s table tennis match and George’s joke. Nice work, ya’ll!
Grace was excited to learn this week that our local library now has a comics section for young readers … and home came FASHION KITTY! by Charise Mericle Harper. Click here to read more abour Charise and her books.
Kitty + Fashion + Drawing = Grace Happy!
