Vi har tidligere skrevet bÃ¥de om Mike Wieringos alt for tidlige dÃ¸d og Project Rooftop, der laver nye dragter til eksisterende seriefigurer. Nu er Project Rooftop sÃ¥ vÃ¦rt for en Mike Wieringo-uge, hvor opgaven er at redesigne Wieringos figur Impulse:
In memory of our friend and fellow fanboy, Mike Wieringo, Project: Rooftop is announcing an open call for redesigns of Bart Allen, the super-speedster sidekick (and later mantle-bearer) of The Flash. Bart was co-created by Mike Wieringo and writer Mark Waid in the mid-90â€™s. â€˜Ringo recently wrote some interesting stuff about Bart over on his blog.
Submissions should be emailed to firstname.lastname@example.org by Sunday, August 26th, with the subject line â€œImpulse,â€ â€œKid Flash,â€ or â€œThe Flashâ€ depending on the era of Bartâ€™s life you decided to build on. Be sure to include your name and website with your submission. Weâ€™ll showcase the best entries all next week. In addition to the Bart Allen fun, weâ€™ll also be talking about some the best superhero costuming work from Mike Wieringoâ€™s career.
Mike had a timeless appreciation for these awesome characters and enjoyed the heck out of online costuming/drawing events, so I think heâ€™d really dig this kind of fun being held in his honor. Whether you consider yourself a friend, fan, or both, come join us in remembering Mike Wieringo, whose incredible artwork and unfailing kindness continue to serve as a source of unending inspiration and joy.
Det er et fint projekt og det bliver spÃ¦ndende at se hvad de fÃ¥r lavet.
TilfÃ¸jelse: dette indlÃ¦g var oprindeligt sat til at blive publiceret for en uge siden, hvorefter jeg sÃ¥ har glemt alt om det – nu er det for sent at deltage, men sÃ¥ kan man til gengÃ¦ld se alle de fine bidrag folk er kommet med, f.eks. denne Impulse af Leanne Hannah:
Der er mange andre fine bidrag, sÃ¥ smut derover og tag et kig …
