(I wasn't happy with the hair in the initial illustration, so I tweaked it a bit.)⠀⠀
"What should I draw? Hmmm…uhhh…God, I have no idea. Okay, I guess I’ll draw a shape or two. Okay, cool, a head. Nice. Let’s give it some spikey hair. Damnit…it looks like Dragon Ball Z. Eh…Whatever. Ah crap, the eyes look like their from Scott Pilgrim. Yeah, I am pretty sure I’ve seen hundreds of other illustrators draw the exact same character. Shit. Yeah, this is definitely not original. Oh! I’ll add a “0” on the forehead! That’s weird and unique, right? Yeah…Hmmm…pretty sure I’ve seen something similar on Instagram. Yeah this is pretty unoriginal. Derivative as shit. But everything is, right? Everyone has their influences, right? “Steal like an artist,” right? I know, I’ll tighten it up as a vector. Ah, damnit…I always do that. Typical. I’m just falling into my habits. Am I even growing? Or is it “original” to express the “unoriginality” of something? Wait, did Warhol do that? Fuck, what is anything anymore?"⠀⠀
[11.12] Growing up my first #hero was #Spiderman . 🕷 I stuck to him like glue, hehe! 🕸 I wanted everything that had to do with Spider-Man. I remember waking up early to watch the #cartoon . 💙 Makes me so sad to know that Stan Lee has passed way. 🥺 What a comic genius! 🤩 He let me experience so many adventures through his heroes! 🌟 You will be missed! 😭 I’ll specifically miss waiting to see what part of the Marcel movies you would come out in. 😂 Thank you for The Marcel world! 😘 #RIP#RIPStanLee#ComicGenius#Heroes
This cartoon reminds me of the second Lion King opening song "He lives in you by Lebo M:
He lives in you, he lives in me
He watches over everything we see
Into the waters, into the truth
In your reflection, he lives in you." RIP to The One Above All, Stan Lee!
A true original and creative icon. There will never be another like him. Rest In Peace Stan Lee. Your comic creations touched the hearts of millions and inspired countless children to pick up a pencil and try to create a character like the master of comic books. Generations of children will see his creations live on in movies, comics, television, books and video games. He gave an amazing gift to the world.
