Aquaman by Bailey, Age 6

A couple of weeks ago, my pal (and F.O.A.M. member) Brian Dixon, of the awesome Crimson Lightning blog, posted a series of sketches by his niece Bailey, age 6.

She drew Superman and the Flash, and then just the Flash. I asked that, the next time she was taking commissions, could someone hand her the orange and green crayons? Little I did know, that just a few days later, the above masterpiece would arrive in my mailbox, an original Aquaman by the artist herself!

Dix told Bailey a little bit about Aquaman and the Shrine, and within minutes she was hard at work. I appreciate the addition of some of Aquaman's finny friends, and, as Dix pointed out, "Even a six-year-old can ensure that Arthur Curry's gloves are the appropriate color."

I love it--thanks Dix, and thanks Bailey!

Just a reminder--you have only 4 days left to get in your submission for the Aquaman Casting Call Contest for a chance to win a copy of the hardcover book The Wolverine Files. Entries due Sunday, August 9th at 10pm!
