Gracie’s Doodles – Bat-Man & Woodie

Grace fell behind a bit over the past few days and drew Bat-Man (LEGO Bat-Man) and Woody from “Toy Story.” She used a Disney instruction guide and did very well. I love Woody’s eyes and mouth.

Cassandra Cain!

I’m a big fan of the “3 Chicks Review Comics” bi-weekly podcast by Sue of DC Women Kicking Ass, Maddy of When Fangirls Attack and Kelly Thompson of 1979 Semi-Finalist. (Grace isn’t in on this one. It’s not exactly “G” rated.)

A pervasive topic on the podcast is the badassery (and lack of continuous use) of Bat Family member Cassandra Cain, who was recently given the mantle of Black Bat. So, for our favorite 3 Chicks … we draw!

Red Robin! with Jordan Gibson

This is the first of an array of new work Grace and I are doing with some truly talented artists. And, we were thrilled to start with Jordan Gibson. I first found his work over at Project: Rooftop (which is an incredible place to acquaint yourself with a wide array of artists and styles who draw for the love of drawing) and absolutely loved his take on Aquaman. You can see it here.

From there, I found Jordan’s Web site and the love affair really caught fire. He has a fun, clean, classic and deceptively uncomplicated style. But, as any artist will tell you, simplicity of line and design is never, never simple. Check out Jordan’s Website here.

Batgirl!

Another amazing collection of art from Maddy, Erin and George (with special guest star Jessica!) Maddy writes:

So we are all so cool that we got together on a Friday night to bake a Rainbow Cake, watch Young Justice, and draw. Our friend/Erin’s cousin Jessica Peery is -here, so we have four pictures for you this time instead of three! After some discussion and Erin decimating the others in a game of Rock-Paper-Scissors-Lizard-Spock we picked the most wonderful current Batgirl, Stephanie Brown.  Steph happens to be the only character in all the world that Erin is good at drawing (MaddyNote: Erin is a liar.), so she is uncharacteristically happy with her picture.  Maddy and Erin share a love of Steph, mostly because she is adoabibble (Maddy’s term), bricks people in the face, and behaves like we would if we got to wear the Bat: super excited. That’s why our Batgirls say the same thing. Jessica thinks drawing Batgirl was fun, and that any deficiencies in her drawing is because she is sick.  George just started playing Kingdom Hearts for the first time, so we had to pry him away from the PS2 with a crowbar and the promise of cake, but he liked using sound effects, Ka-Pow!
 

The Mad Hatter

It was a snow day here, so when we decided to draw a Bat Villain, naturally it was … The Mad Hatter. (Okay, so Mr. Freeze would have made more sense, but we’re talking 7-year-old logic here, people.)

I love the eyes in Grace’s Hatter … and the nostrils. The dude looks suitably crazy.

Bat Villains! by Grace (7) & Dad

After watching a little “Bat-Man Lego” on the Wii, Grace decided to take down some Bat Villains. And, I think her Penguin is terrific. She gave him the long, nasty hair from “Bat-Man Returns” and “The Animated Series.”

Then, we drew Mr. Edward Nigma … The Riddler …

And, I was having so much fun, I kept on going …

Bat-Tastic! by Grace (6) & Dad

Grace created her own character … a fashionable member of the Bat Family she named … Bat-Tastic! She narrated what she wanted as we drew … blonde hair … a bat mask. A bat on the clothes. Two sets of wings. But, our drawings turned out just a little different.
