Cats and Bats for @stephbuscema!

Stephanie Buscema is one of our oldest and bestest buddies on 5 Minute Marvels. She drew Scarlet Witch & Wasp with us waaaay back in the day … you know, 2010.

The girls are excited to see her at HeroesCon in (gulp) two short weeks and wanted to do a collaborative drawing for her. Check out Steph’s work at: stephaniebuscema.com

And now, a word from Stephanie!

Princess at Midnight

We were excited to see our buddy Stephanie Buscema‘s new venture — Saturday Morning Webtoons. This is a super cool site that collects weekly updates of 7 webcomics by 9 fantastic creators. Looking at it, the girls were taken by  Andi Watson’s “Princess at Midnight” and wanted to draw.    P.S. Steph B. just did a cover for Adventure Time’s comic. Check it!

Catwoman for Stephanie Buscema!

One of the very first pals we made on 5 Minutes Marvels was amazing artist, Stephanie Buscema, who drew Scarlet Witch and Wasp with us. You can see it here!

Steph’s on her way to HeroesCon in Charlotte this weekend and we’re excited to meet her for the first time in person, so we decided to draw Catwoman in her style.

And, now a word from Steph!

Wasp & Scarlet Witch! by Stephanie Buscema

Okay … so this one was exciting. Another artist from Marvel’s Girl Comics, Stephanie Buscema, was kind enough to take time to draw with Grace and Cate … and just look at the result. Those pics of Wasp and Scarlet Witch are terrific. Take a long look at them and see how, in just five minutes, Stephanie both added her own style and brought out the true personality of these time-honored characters. Ladies and gentlemen, that is the result of countless hours or practice.

To see more of Stephanie’s artwork, please visit her web site — http://www.stephaniebuscema.com/

Stephanie is a tremendous illustrator whose star is truly on the rise. And, she is related to Marvel Comics royalty. Her grandfather is legendary Marvel artist, John Buscema, co-author of my personal bible for comic art How to Draw Comics the Marvel Way. Whether you are 5 or 55 and want to form a solid foundation for comic art (or art in general), buy this book and read it cover to cover.

Thanks, Stephanie, for your time and for exciting Grace especially to do some strong work of her own.

Cate wasn’t quite up for a double-header. (Umm … no pun intended.)

Venus! by Grace (6) and Dad

This one’s been floating around on a drive since last Sunday. When we woke up and got ready for C2E2 in Chicago last week, Grace got out “Girl Comics” #1 and was enchanted by the Venus (the goddess of love) story by artist, Stephanie Buscema. Stephanie’s Web site is here: http://www.stephaniebuscema.com/

And, she drew what I think is one of her best yet. Once she heard Venus’ power is to make people fall in love with her … she was on it with gobs of gusto. While Stephanie drew the original blonde version, Grace and I chose the modern redhead version … in honor of Grace’s mommy.
