It's a bird, it's a plane...

...It's Superpig! This image is in progress...goes along with the flying pigs that'll be part of the site design. I don't believe all of the site's images will be pigs but  I'm having so much fun coming up with all the ways a pig could "fly". And this one just happens to be caped and armed with a raygun. Bu... bu... bu...

I can imagine this character in a story so easily. And he would appeal to boys and girls alike. Somehow, I imagine him to be full of energy and enthusiasm to do the right thing, but with undesired results along the way.
All would turn out well in the end though!
He has such a strong presence.

Thanks everyone (and son! What a sweet thing to say to your Mama)

June, that's exactly how I imagine him! I feel like he's sort a nervous fellow, filled with that nervous energy and he wants to be the righter of wrongs! I should add a toolbelt sort of thing for him since I bet he'd carry a flashlight with backup batteries, bandaids for boo-boos, sidewalk crack-filler, floss, and a cheese sandwich. Fighting crime is hungry business.

You've got it! That's him! And a tool belt is a gadget he would love to own. But I think the wrapper might come off an 'emergency sweetie' and tools might all be a little bit sticky! Or his string gets knotted, or something else like that.
He has so much energy and promise, you must work a story around him.
Gosh, brainstorming his adventures over coffee would be so much fun, if only I lived nearer!

I'll keep an eye on your blog :o)

I would so love that June! I'm a serious coffee drinker;)
Hmm....I'm so not a writer. Wonder if I could come up with a whole (decent) story. I've been meaning to email you, things have just been nuts. Please do keep stopping by. I'll do the same with your blog:)
