Art Inspiration: Comic Book: Page 1


Getting and finding inspiration is extremely difficult at the best of times. Yet I have been very fortunate to work with some people who push and inspire me every time I am with them, the students. No matter what I may think what they may have in store for me, the students throw those plans out the window and make up some new plans.

That was very clear when I did a Comic Book Club with the students. They range in age from grade 3 – 5 with a large variety of skills that they bring to the class. In the past I helped them to learn how to draw three-dimensional objects but they wanted something different, therefore I created a Comic Book Club for them.

The premise of the club was to teach the students the basics of comic book drawing but due to the amount of work involved I tried to keep the characters a bit simpler than I am use to and I standardized the characters for them. They wanted a super hero comic therefore I drew a lot of different characters they could choose from. They liked that idea but they had to choose up to 2 powers, a unique name and if they were either a hero or villain for their character.

They did a wonderful job drawing the book and they also enjoyed the story. The story line was the Legion of Doom (the villains) needed a new leader so they decided to create one. However they decided to use theirs’ and the League of Justice’s DNA to create him. Each student would be either a Hero or Villain but they were creating my character, the villain’s new leader.   Therefore the title of the Comic Book is “The Rise of Lord Ominous”.

Over the next few weeks I will be posting each finished page of the comic book and a few of the character drawing the students chose from for their character. I hope you enjoy the book and characters as much as the students did.
