Harry's Hero

The school holidays are taking my time right now and I am enjoying every moment. I am managing to keep up with the Summer journal I started specifically for the holidays and I just know it's going to be something special to cherish in later years for both, myself and my children.

The past few entries I have had have been location sketches and can be seen on my Location Sketchbook. So, I thought I'd share something from my large watercolour moleskin to upload here that I created a while back, my Sons favourite action hero...Spiderman!
He has handfuls of these little figures, some throw webs, some have masks to change from Peter Parker to Spiderman and then there's black Spiderman and gunge and more webs and shooters....etc.

Of course, I am terrified of spiders!

That's a great looking Spiderman! What will you do when his attention turns to Jessica Rabbit? *lol*

Brian said...

Neat Spiderman! It is actually a very good exercise too, because those comic book artists really know their stuff with figure drawing and anatomy, so copying their work is an excellent way to learn.

Anita said...

LOL...Thanx Jenny!

Anita said...

Thanx Brian. I agree, those comic artists are amazing!

This is great, Anita! I went to art school with a guy who has found success illustrating for magazines and comic books. Talk about knowing anatomy! His site is here:, if you're interested. He's a great guy to boot!

You're such a good mom. I can just picture your son playing with allo those different action figures.
