At DEATH OF A SUPER HERO, May 2013, we donned spandex and masks, took up alter-egos and mourned the fading of the world’s favourite superhero- Man of Steel, Clarke Kent aka SUPERMAN.

Massive thanks to all models (Georgie aka Lady Loki, Maud aka Death, Lou aka Clarke/Superman and Ruth aka Lois Lane) for their superhuman efforts and dynamic poses on the night. Plus huge high fives to Jon Attfield aka Blue Arrow (our comic consultant, superhero super fan who put a lot of love in to making this event happen), Linsay Trerise aka the Incredible Sulk for creating amazingly realistic rubble and the KAPOW! signs (more of those to pop up in future salons) and other costumes & props, David Geewai Ho for photographing and Orbital Comics for generously donating prizes of graphic novels and comics as prizes.

DSC_0093And the amazing image where it all began, from the mind of  a 4 year old Jon:

supermanJon says: “28 years ago this picture was painted, tonight it came to life at ‘Death of a Superhero’… and it was amazing. The 4 year old kid who painted this was unleashed as I was able to take the comic books and characters that have inspired me and my art work and bring them to life, giving others a chance to be inspired and draw some amazing stuff.”

Awwww…..mission completed!
