So remember that thing I did with Young Justice/Teen Titans a while back? I’m going to be doing the same thing in rebooting/redesigning my own line-up of the Avengers! There will be 10 of these guys just like last time! And here’s number ten! I hope you guys enjoy it! Also hey its the last one meaning expect a group shot of these guys soon!
Number ten makes you feel awesome again.
10/10:

Sam Wilson as “Captain America”
Sam Wilson grew up in Harlem, NYC. His father, a minister, died when he was a young boy trying to stop a gang altercation near their church. From then, Sam grew angry at the world, but rather than unleashing his fury on others, he used this anger to better himself. He joined the military soon after high school and eventually was recruited as an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. under the codename “Falcon”. As an agent of S.H.I.E.L.D. he was able to work with Nick Fury’s top agents, including Steve Rogers, aka Captain America. Steve Rogers had been employed by S.H.I.E.L.D. since the 1970s when he was found frozen in a glacier after on his last mission in 1945. During Sam’s time at S.H.I.E.L.D. he was frequently Steve Roger’s partner. However as the years progressed, Steve began to age. Though the super soldier serum still slowed down Steve’s aging process, he had been fighting for decades and the aging process began to take its toll. Fearing he would not be able to keep up with the new agents, he decided to retire and pass down the Captain America title to his trusted partner, Falcon. Falcon during this time had developed hard light construct wings, which enabled him to fly as well as a fully capable shield to block attacks. In addition, he frequently uses his wings to attack foes, as despite them being light constructs, made them almost completely indestructible. With the rise of superheroes and supervillains, Sam and Nick Fury agreed to create a team of superheroes to help defend the defenseless, thus creating the Avengers. Sam and Monica Rambeau aka Pulsar, lead the team.
Redesign Remarks:
So I tried to combine the movie look and the new Captain America look for Falcon in this. I liked the hard light constructs because it would mean he is able to turn them on and off, which means no cumbersome metal wings. Thoughts?

There will be 10 members of this group and you can check out the rest of the group currently drawn HERE: [LINK]

Falcon is my favourite

So a little while ago, I was asked to submit samples for a possible comic adaption of Karen Cushman’s wonderful book “Catherine, Called Birdy.”

As I am sharing these samples with you now, you might have guessed the project is not happening, at least not at the moment. At least I got to do some very fun art and learn that Karen Cushman and I share a strong admiration of Trina Schart Hyman and her work. 

I really loved this book and would be extremely pleased to have a comic adaptation :O

"The Zaatari Refugee Camp is twelve kilometers from the Syrian border, and has become the fourth largest city in Jordan. At its peak last year, over 3,000 Syrians refugees were entering the camp every day. This was a biblical level of population movement. Over 400,000 people have lived in the camp at some point in the last two years. UNHCR has responded to their basic needs: sanitation, food, healthcare. But there’s a large gap between survival and livelihood. For lack of a better word, boredom has become a big problem. It’s too dangerous to return to Syria, and there are very limited ways to be productive inside the camp. But the adaptations have been amazing. This is unlike any other refugee camp in the world. The Syrians are coming from a middle class economy, so they are a very skilled population— they aren’t subsistence farmers. They’ve managed to build an economy inside the camp. Most of the tents have been upgraded to houses. The refugees trade with the Jordanians, and bring in supplies from the outside to start their own shops. One man even started a supermarket. It’s still a tough situation. But arriving with nothing, the Syrian refugees have managed to carve out their own dignity inside the camp. They aren’t just taking what is given to them. They’ve created choices for themselves.”

Can we just take a moment to remember how advanced the astronomy of the Maya civilization was?

How they were able to predict eclipses and the motions of Venus and the Moon?

How they invented the concept of zero, independently from the Indians?

How their calendar measured the length of the solar cycle more accurately than the Gregorian calendar?
