Abstracted Super Friends
Admittedly, I am a bit of a geek.  I have a decided fondness for sci-fi, fantasy, and comics, all those "geek culture" things.  My knowledge in this area is rather scatter shot and no where near to in depth.  This said, I had been watching some of the Justice League animated features on Netflix and they got me thinking about the old Super Friends shows I loved as a kid.  A thought began to grow about doing a series of paintings based on these iconic DC characters.  But did I really want to do straight up portraits?  Which incarnation would I pick?  I kept the idea in the back of my mind for a while, then one day while walking to the Seattle Art Museum it hit me, why not do abstracts of them.  A series of imagery based on impressions the characters left on me.  The result follows.
