REMEMBERING 'RINGO...

In memory of Mike Wieringo, who passed away Aug. 12, Project: Rooftop announced an open call for re-designs of Bart Allen (Impulse/Kid Flash/The Flash), a character created by Wieringo and writer Mark Waid. This gave me some extra motivation to create a fitting tribute to an artist that i admire. 'Ringo always showed a lot of energy
in his work and you could see his passion in it... we should all strive for that in what we do.

As Impulse-

As Kid Flash-


God bless,
-C!

Truly a sad story, I wish I had met Ringo. But your Impulse is rock'in!!! He's one of my favorite comic book characters. You've made his fans proud.
