2016 Deadpool - Veldhuisen and James

 Alexia Veldhuisen
 Josh James
2016.02.13 Dewey's Comic City, Madison, NJ

I went to see Deadpool on Friday morning (2016.02.12) 10am showing with my son Matt..
I had seen the poster with Deadpool making a heart with his hands. I don't think it is a spoiler, but he does this in the movie. It is after all a love story masked by extreme violence, rude humor, naked women and bad jokes..

Dewey's held a Deadpool Day on Saturday Feb 13, hosting Alexia and Josh, who were providing sketches to customers. I had the idea to use Valentines first day covers from 2013 (heart in sealing wax) and obtain companion pieces from Alexia and Josh. I figured they could each draw Deadpool with one hand forming the heart shape, so when the envelopes were put together, the drawing would complete the heart.
They both did excellent work and readily accepted the challenge.

Alexia Veldhuisen originally comes from Amsterdam, and attended the Kubert school to refine her drawing skills. Graduating in 2014, Alexia is pursuing her career while still dreaming of becoming a master samurai...

Josh James is currently a student at the Kubert School..

Deadpool was originally created by Fabian Nicieza and Rob Leifeld in 1991, when the character appeared in Marvel Comics' The New Mutants #98.  Deadpool (Wade Wilson) is a mentally unstable mercenary, who started out as a supervillian.  Deadpool is a takeoff on DC Comics Deathstroke (Slade Wilson). Deadpool's wisecracking attitude and comments have made him a fan favorite...
