Har alltid elsket å lese tegneserier, og mye var fra Marvel og DC. comics da, som WonderWoman.
Nå for tiden går det mest i bøker - Fantasy, på engelsk. Men jeg kjøper også enkelte tegneserie album som 'fortsettelser' på tv-serier - Buffy, Charmed, Farscape ++ og jeg går ikke glipp av ett eneste Nemi.. og jeg prøver fremdeles å komplettere Alvefolket album samlinga jeg begyndte på i 12-års alderen. Så synd de er jæskla vanskelig å få tak i! Noen har fått skyhøye antikvariat priser også...

Her er en gammel LO av meg i 4-5 års alderen! Hehe, SÅ typisk 70'talls-tapet! :)

Fantomet ♥ var min aller første helt (sånn rett etter pappa, som jo var den største helten!)

Pappa brukte å lese Fantomet, Tarzan, Supermann og Sølvpilen (+ Conan, Tex Willer oa. som jeg ikke fikk lov å lese), da jeg var liten. Lærte å lese stort sett på egenhånd gjennom disse tegneseriene, samt Donald og Bamse - oj ja husker dere Pellefanten? Tuppen &  Lillemor? Blokkskrift var så mye lettere å forstå husker jeg :) 
Men tilbake til DT-kortet mitt! Fikk denne stilige Wonder Woman digi'en fra ukens sponsor Sassy Studio Designs ♥ hos Creative Fingers. ~ Lag akkurat hva du vil for #18. om du vil være med! :) Klarte faktisk å ødelegge den første superdama da jeg skulle montere! Rev av armen hennes... og måtte male en ny! Kjempeirriterende!
Sorry at innlegget ble litt langt *hehe* Og ikke glem å joine Gorjuss bloggcandyen min! Link øverst til høyre i bloggen, eller gå hit :)

I've always loved to read comics ~ especially as a child, and alot has been from the Marvel & DC Universes, like WonderWoman :) Actually learnt to read with comics! First with Donald and kiddiecomics like Bamse & Pellefanten (don't know wich name they go by in english - but they're pictured in my layout (old one) of myself as a child above... Later on it was the Phantom, Tarzan, Superman and other of my dads fave comics that also became my first heroes ~ beside my dad ofcourse! ♥

Nowadays I read mostly books, especially fantasy. But still read some graphis novels, like the continued Buffy, Charmed etc. series. I collect ElfQuest (the old albums) & have read most Nemi albums published :)

I'm SO loving the image I got to work with in this weeks challenge at Creative Fingers! #18. wich is Anything Goes! She's named 'Wonder Regan' from our sponsor Sassy Studio Designs :) 
Almost didn't get my card in for this one ~ I accidentaly ripped one of her limbs off when mounting, so had to ink up another one.. Luckily, that happens very rarely as I spend ALOT of time on watercoloring, even more so than the cards, and I'm a perfectionista when it comes to making cards.. never completly satisfied ;)

Sorry about my lenghty post! And please do join my ongoing Gorjuss blogcandy ~ top of my sidebar or here :)
