This watercolor illustration painted in 2003 is from Naked, a children's book written by comedian Michael Ian Black and illustrated by Debbie Ridpath Ohi. The story is about the hilarity that ensues when a young boy refuses to wear clothes. In this painting, the main character of Naked is captured mid-leap wearing only a red superhero cape and a gaping grin. The cape flies behind him as he throws caution to the wind while protecting the public and fighting crime. An ambiguous blue background helps provide context and grounds the work. Ridpath Ohi aptly captures the seemingly endless supply of energy so easily expended by a child on a mischievous mission.
