West Coast Avengers Nutcrackers!

One of the main reasons we haven’t posted much of late is that Grace was rehearsing for her dance group’s role in The Nutcracker. (She played a rat and a ginger snap.) This was her second year in the show and she had a complete blast. So, when I asked her what she wanted to draw tonight, she said, “Hawkeye … as a nutcracker.” What an awesome idea! So, I joined her by drawing the original lineup of the West Coast Avengers … as nutcrackers.

Hawkeye & Mockingbird!

One of the real joys of this blog is that the girls and I have met some people we really like. One of them is up and coming artist, Jordan Gibson http://twitter.com/#!/superbatgibson).

After seeing his work on Project: Rooftop, we drew Red Robin with Jordan a few months ago. He has an incredible style that’s modern, while recalling the simple joy and color of the classic age of comics. Bright times ahead for him.

Grace and I were thrilled to meet Jordan at HeroesCon last week. He shared a booth with another of our favorites, Dean Trippe. Jordan drew the incredible Hawkeye and Mockingbird below for Grace … and it turned out to be his first con comission ever. We were honored! So we drew Mockingbird, too.

Thanks to David Lopez!

We’re still pretty excited over here about the Nightcrawler art and video David Lopez sent our way yesterday…so the girls wanted to give him some special art in honor of David’s upcoming Hawkeye & Mockingbird series with Jim McCann over at the House of Ideas!

Grace’s version of Mockingbird dropped by the tanning bed on her way to the sketch session …

And, one more from me … a tip of the hat to one of the operatives in the new WCA!
