Weekly Winners – February 1 – Feburary 6th

February 8, 2009 at 1:38 pm 9 comments

This week’s Weekly Winners is accompanied by drawings by a promising local artist by the name of Hannah S. On Sunday, Ryan Somma and I attended a Super Bowl Party at her parent’s house. Hannah loves to draw so she was put in charge of decorating. A sign on the front door welcomed us to the party. Throughout the house, there were signs labeling important landmarks such as the living room and the food buffet. A banner of hand drawn footballs hung from the mantel.

During the game, Hannah further demonstrated her artistic skills by drawing herself as a super hero. Her favorite color is black and she loves to skate board, so her super hero donned a black mask and a time traveling skate board. And thus Skate Board Girl was born.

Later this year, the 1986 critically acclaimed graphic novel Watchmen will come to life on the big screen. That’s a 23 year long journey that featured a number of failed adaptation attempts and a bitter copyright suit. Young Hannah, on the other hand, was able to bring her vision to life the same evening. Using black construction paper, she made herself a mask and viola – Skate Board Girl lives!!!

Knowing that I liked to rollerblade and my favorite color is green, Hannah’s next character was “Fire Blade Girl”. And knowing that Ryan Somma is exceedingly smart, she created “Fire Brain”.

“His brain is working so hard,” Hannah explained, “It’s on FIRE!!!!”

And of, course, we needed masks to match.

Watching Hannah making masks was very much like watching an episode of Project Runway (which like Watchmen  has its own set of legal complications). For each of her creations she had to have the model report for a fitting before securing the final seams.

At the end of the evening, I discovered Hannah isn’t the only one in her family with artistic talent. I thought I was all cool making a Plastic Canvas Icosahedron. That is… until I saw the amazing Plastic Canvas village Hannah’s maternal grandmother made. It is the most impressive plastic canvas project I have seen to date.

    I read nearly everything I could get my hands on. Do you like to take
    chances in bed? Do you smother or are you free flowing?
    What’s he thinking about when he considers me?

    I was bored a great deal back then, and I would not go back again to
    that time. Right answers are tallied and the players are supplied
    a rating for instant bragging rights. Thin wallets are in demand for both
    men and women.
