First Drawing of the Year: Shadowcat!

So, we’re starting the year by delivering on a debt. Weeks ago, I promised a young lady in Greensboro that Grace and I would draw Kitty Pryde. So, Carly, here you go. I wanted to draw the classic blur Shadowcat costume and Grace was enchanted by Katie Cook’s drawing of Shadowcat as cat here.

And, to prove that we’re about sketching and having fun and not perfectionism, check this out. Umm … unless Kitty’s mutant power is having her thumbs on the opposite side of her hand, I kinda’ messed that up. 🙂

Kitty Pryde! by Savannah (2 1/2) & Dad (Ben Cohen)

Two more great illustrations (and just the tip of the iceberg) from Savannah and Ben Cohen. Check ’em out.


“We drew Kitty Pryde (inspired by Kelly Thompson’s blog…againone of my favorites). Her head is the oval on the left, Lockheed (the dragon) is the oval and squiggle on the right. Bellow is her hair and then her costume in the left corner.”


“We drew Dave from D.P.7 (one of my favorite comics as a kid). This one is clearer, because the oval like shape with circle-like shapes in it is his bald head. His beard is in the uper-righthand his shirt is the upper-left.”
