Lunch Time Heroics

Artist

Name: Michael Watson
Statement: I create comic art because I want to make people feel like I do when I read comics. I am amazed by the worlds, characters, and stories that are created in comics. It's like being a photographer in these adventured filled realms and capturing the right moment with your camera. The work was drawn with non-photo blue pencil, drawing pencils and scanned into the computer then digitally inked and colored with Photoshop CS. With this piece, I wanted the city of Columbus to see a hero in their city. A hero who was like them dealing with life trying to get by when "LIFE" happens and you have to react to it. For anyone enjoying this, that means you have become a part of it. We are with Hotshot in this moment of Awesome. You can believe it's real, grounded in the reality of it being your city. As we stand with the variety of people we see every day in that moment your inner geek is like "That's cool!"
