Brand New Batman Comic (As Drawn By My Daughter)

My daughter decided to draw a few comic strip panels on Sunday. Since they’re featuring a brand new¬†Batman advenure (and a little bit of a Superman cameo), I figured I had to share.

I’ll include some explanatory notes as well, in case the action is not immediately evident.

  • Panel 1: Someone is trying to steal a mermaid.
  • Panel 2: Here comes Batman!
  • Panel 3: Batman has knocked the villain out cold and saved the mermaid.

  • Panel 5: Superman, droppin like bomb, on an unsuspecting villain.
  • Panel 6: That villain is history.

  • Panel 7: The Joker has pulled a Jurassic Park and has unleashed a dinosaur. The public is running scared.
  • Panel 8: The Joker at the dinosuar’s control panel. “Maniacal laugh!”

I hope she keeps drawing these. I love them.


How To Draw A Banner

I was drawing with my kids a few weeks ago and they asked me to draw a banner. No idea why. I can’t remember now what the context was. In any event, after I finished the banner, they proclaimed me the greatest artist in the world. Clearly my kids don’t get out enough. That said, I drew up instructions for them to follow on how to draw a banner.

I present them to you for your enjoyment. Just follow the red lines and soon you’ll have a banner of your very own.
