Dibo’s, dibo’s everywhere!

Like Su-Bo, Dibo’s will soon be everywhere. I was reading the other day that it is predicted that diabetes will affect half of all Americans by the end of the decade. Now that is going to be more than 150 million people and will annually cost around 10% (about $500 billion) of their entire healthcare budget. Now surely with all this over-eating and lack of exercise even their superheroes are eventually going to succumb. With this in mind I’ve depicted an overweight Superman (he can still just about fly though due to our sun that powers him) taking an overweight lady to the nearest hospital so she can be surgically removed from the telephone box in which she has accidentally been trapped.

I finished the original version of this piece last week and then took it outside in the sunshine to get a photo. As i’ve learned slate is a lovely medium to work with but can be fragile when it hits the floor… At least i managed to get a shot of it before it broke. Then i decided that there’s no point cursing at yourself for too long and thought i may as well just get to work on another. So version two is at the bottom and comes complete with a dose of glow-in-the-dark paint emanating from the sun that makes Superman so super.

Cheers
