Hey, everyone! A big challenge and (biggish) news for our (teensy bit late) one-year anniversary challenge!
When I first started the club, I did so with a swarm of butterflies in my stomach. I didn’t feel at all confident that I’d be able get things off to a smooth start, let alone keep the momentum going a year later. Lucky for me, the club’s members turned out to be an endless source of positive energy and enthusiasm. I’ve never seen a challenge go by without a thread full of supportive comments and passion for the DCU. The club is what it is today because of you.
Annnnd for that reason, I feel a little less scared about this next part.
Late this week, I got hit with some news that I had to be involved with another project at work that’s predicted to require several hundreds hours of work on my part over the next couple of months (that’s in addition to my usual workload). I kinda thought I was gonna explode and fade away into dust on the spot, but @JKoco17 has kindly zoomed in to play the part of superhero.
He’s slightly newish to the group, but anyone who’s been active around here knows he’s a great artist, organizer and all around good guy. I have full confidence in handing over the helm of this whacky ship so that he can keep this party running while I
fight for my sanity navigate offline stuff.
I love y’all and I’m not quitting the club! I’ll be active as much as possible. In the meanwhile, please show JK the same kind of amazing support and teamwork you’ve always offered me. I know I can count on you!
Our biggest collaboration ever!
Each artist will draw a DC character of their choice (hero, villain — anything goes). Later on, I (and maybe some volunteers) will digitally edit everyone’s artwork onto one background.

Hope many of you can join in!
