My character is called The Weedzard, some Gandhi Wannabe. His power is doing tai-chi that turns people into good vibrations so he can then sniff them and get stoned. "Shitsu Hirokaka or The Weedzard, as he would later be called, discovered he had miraculous tai-chi powers that could make people happy and boost longetivity at young age. In 1967, in the midst of the Cold War, and suffering alienation growing up from being half-Japanese in the United States post-war, he found comfort to his soul and felt connected to the music of The Beach Boys. He became convinced those surfer vibes should be «the vibes of America» and thus decided to form a religious cult, aiming to spread them in belief that it would bring world peace. In later years, having become a prominent figure of peace, the national agencies began vigilating him closely after the Manson incident, and with spreading awareness of his miraculous powers, he was eventually falsely flagged a communist with conspiracy charges that got him arrested by the end of 1969. Looking for any excuse to declare superiority against the Soviet rivals and with groundbreaking proof of his superpowers, the CIA program that held secret experiments with LSD formed the 1970 Esper Program and further confiscated and banned every book and article on the Chinese spiritual practice. He was held captive until 1985, when they desisted his confinement due to stagnation and lack of funding in research, and the efforts of the civil rights movement that manifested itself filling four blocks outside the White House. However, upon getting out, he would never be the same. Having grown detached from reality and beginning to lose the grasp of his mind due to the turturous experiments that were held on him for so long – yet with his objective still imprinted in his mind – he discovered that upon casting a big portion of his power into his feet’s little toe, he could turn people into a glittered curtain of pink smoke with effects similar to cannabis’, just the same as weed-tai-chi. He must now spread those “Good Vibrations” and stop the biggest threat he’s ever faced: Obomi, who threatens to turn the presidential elections into a Shakespearean musical!" This took me out of my comfort zone and got me to paint a drawing with this much effort for the first time, what's worse, a traditional-digital hybrid. I never win stuff but hope my character made you laugh.
