Today’s drawing challenge brings me back about ten years (god I feel old) to a time when a little girl woke up early every Saturday (imagine doing such a thing now) to sit in front of the television and tune in to Kids WB, where X-Men Evolution was showing.

Kurt always made me laugh. Sometimes he made me cry (like in that episode called “Shadowed Past” where he finds about about his mother) and sometimes I found myself getting annoyed at his choices. He motivated a little girl wake up early just to be close to him for that half-hour-twenty-minute slot on television–true love at its best! The first seeds of the idea of an ideal boy were sown when I watched Nightcrawler on X-Men Evolution. Sans blue and fuzzy.

I still adore you, Kurt Wagner.
