Thought I would go there, Edward Snowden style

Crew Of Kid Eccentric

From Left to Right, Wayne, Anita, Ken and Dylan. Together, they deal with life as 11-year-old’s.

 

I had a chance to actually redraw a picture that I shared a while ago on my Facebook page, a picture of my main characters from my web comic strip, “Kid Eccentric.”

I wanted to redraw it so I could get an idea of what it looked like after using the iPad app, “Procreate,” and I have to tell ‘ya, I’m surprised about how much personality comes out of this image.

From left to right, you have Wayne, Anita, Ken and Dylan.

Wayne is often known as the “I.T.” geek of his crew and of the school, but his full name is Wayne Koppa, so his best friends will sometimes lovingly call him “King Koopa,” which of course is one of the bad guys from the Nintendo game, Super Mario Brothers. Wayne is optimistic and is always interested in using technology to solve problems. He loves cookies and loves coding.

Anita is the girl of the group, but, respectively so has earned her place amongst this trio of boys. She’s as smart as the main character to her side, Kennedy (Ken for short), and, often keeps the group in line as far as maturity sake is concerned. When Ken get’s into a fit of conspiracy and rage, Anita, with the assistance of Dylan, simply has to remind Ken to come back to reality. It’s Dylan’s full-time job.

Kennedy is a the boy that no one truly understands and it frustrates him to no end. He’s smart and quite eccentric and peculiar. He’s probably the only 11-year-old out there who treats Election Day like Super Bowl Sunday. Throughout my strip he tackles the topics of God, Girls and Government and he often has the conversations with his best friend Dylan.

Dylan is Ken’s best friend and moral compass of sorts. While Dylan is a full-on nerd himself, you wouldn’t be able to truly guess it from his somewhat hip exterior. Dylan balances Ken out often when they discuss issues of life from bullying to surviving pop quizzes to parents. When Ken get’s into a fit of conspiracy and rage, Dylan simply has to remind Ken to come back to reality. It’s Dylan’s full-time job.

Stay tuned for more development. As you can tell, I’m having a LOT of fun with the story and with this creation.

Now, all I gotta do is finish up my other creative stuff.

Finding Time To Create

A lot of my good friends, colleagues and mentors are struggling to find time to create and make their work.

Mostly because of life.

Life hits us and it can hit us incredibly hard. Life can often be that merciless bully that never seems to quit bothering you.

My thoughts and prayers go out to every cartoonist, every writer, every artist and every single creative who is struggling to make the time and experiencing the pain of what happens when one doesn’t have the time.

You are not alone…the time will come back…I am with you in the fight and I believe you will come out of it!
