A Word from Grace & Cate on our 2nd Anniversary!

We are proud to say that today is our second anniversary on 5 Minute Marvels! It’s been a long way, baby from our first drawing of Quicksilver on 2/22/10 … and Grace and Cate have something to say to you and to all our pals who have drawn with us …

Our second anniversary was all the sweeter learning about Cartoon Network’s plans for a series of DC Nation Shorts … including Amethyst, Princess of Gemworld by Brianne Drouhard (creator of Billie the Unicorn!) and Super Best Friends Forever led by Lauren Faust of My Little Pony & Milky Way & The Galaxy Girls fame. A show about teenaged Supergirl, Wonder Girl and Batgirl … !?!? We can’t wait. Thanks, Cartoon Network, for understanding that girls love comics, too! So … we couldn’t think of a better way to celebrate two years than to draw.

The Flash! by Grace (6) & Dad

We didn’t talk about it, but Grace’s Flash looks nice and good natured … like Barry Allen. Mine’s a bit more cocky … definitely rockin’ a bit more of the Wally West vibe …

Apache Chief! by Cate (4) & Dad (Tim)

I must confess to having a softspot for Apache Cheif, Black Vulcan and Samurai from Superfriends. So, I jumped when they released action figures of this hapless trio at Christmastime. Cate saw Apache Cheif and had t draw him … and Grace, well … not in the mood to draw tonight.
