I love hearing about long term art projects, especially geeky ones. This one took place over the course of 2012, and comes to us courtesy of Pixar artist Everett Downing. He wanted to get all the ideas that were stockpiling in his head onto paper so he started the 365 Supes project which had him coming up with 365 different superheroes/villains over the year, one a day. It is an ambitious project, one that almost got all the way completed. He made 292 entries in all... not to shabby Just 70 some-odd more to go, but the 292 are pretty amazing. He also set up some ground rules: 1) No design should take more than an hour 2) Very small and limited back stories (which are included with most entries) 3) Come up with a clever name for each of them . He has an unreal blog of all of the creations he has made so far that you can see by clicking here, and Downing vows to finish the rest up over the next few weeks. I included my favorite ones after the jump. Enjoy them for yourself, and leave your favorites in the comment section....
