Spectacle! (from “Superhero Girl”)

So, it’s no secret that we’re big, big fans of Faith Erin Hicks’ weekly Web comic, “The Adventures of Superhero Girl.” Grace, Cate and I drew Superhero girl a few months ago, and tonight sketched her new pal, Spectacle, who premiered on the strip last week.

The girls loved the glasses and her ginormous ponytail, which Cate decided was rainbow colored and the source of Spectacle’s powers. 🙂

And, now a word from Faith Erin Hicks!

Superhero Girl!

When it rains it pours — three posts in one day! And, best of all — Cate is back!

Over the last couple of weeks, I have really come to love the new Web Comic, “Adventures of Superhero Girl” by Faith Erin Hicks. It is a sarcastic and endearing tale of a superheroine just trying to get started in the biz. The strip calls to mind another favorite of mine, Joey Weiser’s The Unremarkable Tree Frog (Click here to see). I thought Grace would love this character and she did.

As for what Grace is working on this week is the figure down to the waist and drawing joints, like arms with elbows. I think she did a great job. And, it was cute to hear her giving Cate advice on how to “ink” a pencil and whick pens to use.  Cate did agree to draw today, but refused to draw a nose. You know, on principle.
