Other People's Art

Lee, on the others side of the world at Quit Your Day Job has been cranking out some really nice super hero and comic-based artwork for a while now. I think he only got back into it fairly recently, but his work is really nice and seems to be getting better with each post.

A while back he did a three-part series called Coffee and Capes featuring home-made super heroes and their coffee drinks of choice. One of them caught my imagination and I asked Lee if I could draw my own vision of it (this is what I'm good at. If I see a good idea, I like to try to go off on it. Not so much stealing as... hunting and gathering).

He gave me permission and I went for it. I emailed it to him to see what he thought and ask permission to post it (it was his idea, after all). He liked it, so here it is:

So, go check out Lee's words and pictures.

I just love that I can see the original piece in this but then see everything that you've brought to the table and made it your own.

It's great and I'm more than ecstatic to have inspired anyone in even a tiny way!

Very cool. I like how you went from Lee's "A" to a "Z" on the symbol.

Just hanging out sippin' his cup 'o joe. Daydreaming a bit.

@Arjan: It is a satisfactory coffee, rather than a wake up coffee, but he's a morning hero ;)

@Lee: Glad you like it and you do.

@Jeff: You noticed the letter change!
