Lady Liberty with Friends!

So, a group of our buddies from Project: Rooftop – Dean Trippe, Ming Doyle, Joel Carroll, Joe Quinones & Maris Wicks – did something pretty cool at HeroesCon … redesigning the classic Lady Liberty as a superhero to raise money for the Comic Book Legal Defense Fund. Now, the art is available at eBay with proceeds going to CBLDF. Click here to read more about it and get links to the art auctions!

Grace and I decided to join in … and we both had the idea to go hip hop. I think hers has a real KE$HA vibe. Mine, sadly, looks like what a mid-30s dude’s idea is of hip hop attire. (Pssst! Don’t use the word “attire, dude.”)

Jubilee! by Ming Doyle

Wow. Super-Cool, Comics “It” Girl, Ming Doyle, dropped by to draw Jubilee, a favorite of hers from the Fox X-Men cartoon show growing up. (Yeah, we’re standing by the title we gave her. We think it could be like when Aint It Cool News called Kiera Knightly the “Sexy,  Tomboy Beanpole.” Don’t laugh, it stuck … kinda’.)

Okay, amazingly talented and Marvel’s “Girl Comics” illustrator, Ming Doyle, sent us an incredible sketch of Jubilee that makes you wonder, “How can someone do THAT in five minutes.” Want to see more? Of course you do! Check out more of her work at www.MingDoyle.com!

Thanks, Ming! Cate asked to sit this one out, but Grace had a ball. Once I told her Jubilee was a teen-ager, she added what she thinks all teen-agers say … “Peace, brother!” (Don’t ask me.) I added Jubilee’s bubble gum.
