Happy Wannabe Wednesday!
So our Wannabe Heroes Kickstarter is only 10 days away from being over and we NEED YOUR HELP! Head on over and pledge your support if you want or take a minute to download this Ninja Bear Coloring page and color it like there’s no tomorrow!
You may be wondering… ‘why should I color Ninja Bear?’
First of all, coloring is fun. It’s nearly impossible not to smile while coloring. As if that’s not enough, we are going to pick our favorite colored Ninja Bear and print it in the back of the Wannabe Heroes comic book!! (giving credit to the colorist, of course!)
This contest is for all ages, but you will be judged based on your age. (I know, I know…age discrimination, but please don’t sue us!)
The deets: Once you have downloaded and colored your Ninja Bear (you can color by hand or digitally), simply email the digital file to us via the Wannabe Heroes Email! If you live close by, you can also drop off your colored pieces with me at Arena Comics on Free Comic Book Day which is May the 4th (Que Star Wars jokes here). You don’t have to support our Kickstarter to be eligible for the contest, but it’d be a lot cooler if you did, man.
DEADLINE: Sunset on May 6th, 2013! Click here to download file.
Hey guys and gals,
We’ve finally started a Kickstarter and it’s located here…
Check it out, Shout it out to your friends or Support it!
Any one of those is cool, All three is divine!
Thanks so much.
If you’re like me, you may be wondering, “What gives? Why no new content on the website for awhile…?!” Well, sorry about that. We’ve been working pretty hard to revamp the characters and turn Wannabe Heroes into a full fledged comic book and good news, we have a 4-issue limited series already in the works!
You may have seen us showing off a promo for the new comic at the Baltimore Comic Con and we have decided to start a kickstarter to help fund the first 4 issues of the comic (with loads of other goodies) in March. Please don’t completely give up on me as I really love drawing comics and these characters especially and I will do them justice when time permits. Take Care!
Well, it’s officially been a year and I want to Thank each and every one of you who’ve stopped by, tweeted, facebooked, commented & shared in this experience. You guys (and gals) are awesome!
With that said, I have something to share. Way back in 1998 I started a small comic strip when I began working at the local paper as a Graphic Artist and it was called, ‘Lost Ambition’. It was pretty bad, but I didn’t really have any idea of what I was doing, so make fun of me if you must. Anyway, one of the Wannabes got his first gig as a character in that strip. Allow me to share with you the First Appearance of Kenny. (As seen by clicking the thumbnail to the left)
I’ve said before that Kenny was partially based off of my own inner critic, but in those early days, he was based more off a friend of mine whom I attended college with. As you can see, Kenny wasn’t always as bitter as he seems nowadays, I guess that comes from being kept in the filing cabinet all those years. Regardless, he’s out now and I have big plans for for our wannabe elitist, so please stay tuned.
So thanks again for sharing in this occasion and the good news is, I’m just finding my bearings and look to be doing Wannabe Heroes for a long time coming. Here’s hoping you guys stick around. *Raises Glass* A toast to Wannabes, past, present & future!
