ROLE: WRITING, COLORING

ABOUT THE PROJECT

Several years ago, when I briefly ran a small website for the purpose of interviewing cartoonists I admired, I was contacted out of the blue by a company called PWD that was looking to revive an advertising mascot they'd once used in the distant past. They asked me (due to the related subject matter of my site) if I would be able to create a one-page comic to promote their brand. I contacted an artist with experience drawing superheroes for the project and together we created this comic, with the artist drawing Captain Rush's adventure and with me writing the comic, coloring it, and turning it into a Flash version for viewing on the internet. We produced a second one-sheet after this, but after that my work with Nike grew busy and, with the blessing of PWD, I passed the project on to the artist (who prefers to remain unnamed for personal reasons) and a new collaborator.
