My second child, a daughter, is born. She came today. I could not be happier right now.
To celebrate this, I had a grand idea. I want to collect a bunch of artwork dedicated to her in her first week with me, her mother, and her adoring older brother.
I’m putting out the call to any mates with artistic abilities to lend a hand this week. I want to create a small journal full of all the great art I can muster up that you’re willing to share with her.
If you are interested, here’s what you can do:
- Create a piece of art. It can be a five minute doodle on a napkin, or a full blown commission with colours (she really digs Iron Fist). If you normally do a daily/warm up sketch then just dedicate that to her, but please don’t dedicate any actual comic pages or pin up material intended for others, I’m looking for informal stuff. I don’t want to put anyone out. The art can be of anything you want (Iron Fist, a moon over a lake, your favourite superhero costume, a life drawing, anything).
- Take a photo of the art. It can be scanned in or just zapped with you iTripodCamera. Send the photo to me in an email/tweet/carrier pigeon neck tube.
- If you want to add words in a thought balloon/speech bubble/caption then just dedicate it to ‘Baby Lindsay 2.0’ – I’ll make sure she gets the message.
If you are keen for this then I cannot thank you enough. I’m certain this will be awesome, and something the whole Lindsay Family will remember for a long time.
