Biology of Christopher D. Swinson
Saturday, August 8th 2020
Hello, my name is Christopher Dale Swinson. I’m a huge fan of Science Fiction Action Movies, Action Movies, and Thrillers. While living with Grandparents in North Carolina, I immediately “at first sight” fell in love with Comic Books. I was 10-years old at the time and my all-time favorites were Justice League of America, The Flash, The Invaders, Captain America and The Falcon, Shazam, The Invincible Iron Man, The Amazing Spider-Man, Black Panther, Captain Marvel, and quite a few others. I’ve dreamt of creating my own “Super-Powered Characters” ever since.
Rather it be a Super-Powered Character or a non-super character, I like to merge spiritually with all “characters” that I draw while I’m drawing her/him/ it … if it’s an extraterrestrial. In 2010, I’ve written/drawn/inked/colored free Mini-Comics which were available on my Art Site at the time. I created them for children whose Parents couldn’t afford the prices of this generation’s Comic Books. Of all of the characters I created over the years, my “main” Super-Powered Character is INFINITY™. She’s a 7 year old African-Latina, named Zahra’ Amina Henson® a.k.a. INFINITY™. I created her in 1994 in Inspiration of my Daughter when she was 2 years old. This exceptional Super-Powered Heroine can “never” die … allegedly … lol.
Moving forward, when I draw her, I try my best to draw/paint INFINITY™ to look as closely like my baby-girl. My Daughter actually designed the variety of hair styles I’ve drawn for INFINITY™. I create a Facebook Page years later called “Heroes Elite™” and a separate FB Page for INFINITY™. The Heroes Elite™ Facebook Page exhibits a few Super-Powered Characters I’ve created that are actually teammates of INFINITY™ … and she’s also their leader. My #2 “main” Super-Powered Hero is ADAMANTIS™, who I created in 1976. He was my first “main” SPC, until my Daughter was born in 1992. My goal is to get my characters on the “big-screen” like The Avengers®, and I hope that you like some of the Super-Characters I’ve created.
In closing, the feeling I get when I draw or paint an idea which popped into my head is indescribable, and I sincerely must give all Praise and Glory to God Almighty. I must also give thanks to my very special lady-friend for her adamant support, care, and loyalty. My art site is https://alphalevel.org/ “Alpha-Level Sci-Fi Syndicate.” God Bless you all, as well as your entire Family, and never give up regarding “creating” and “perfecting your art and imagination. Peace & Love.
