Aiden Strong

Today’s sketch, or rather, painting, is in memory of a little boy named Aiden who passed today, who also happens to be the son of one of my best friend’s cousins.  I’ve known about Aiden’s fight for his life since earlier this week after the injuries he sustained, keeping up with my friend, hoping, and praying along with countless others, that he’d pull through.

After making the decision to donate his organs to save the lives of other children, His parents requested, through Imgur  that his image be used artistically to turn him into his favorite super hero, Spiderman.


Upon seeing their request, It only seemed right to dedicate today’s sketch to Aiden, and his Family. My sincerest condolences to Aiden’s family, and their loss. aiden strong Image is photo edit/speed painting, which I made by arranging my reference photos into a collage, that I drew and painted over.

  1. This is an amazing piece of art, and a wonderful memorial to this little boy. I remember reading the post on Imgur, yesterday and I’m so glad that someone went above and beyond to create something amazing for the family. My deepest sympathies for them and for Aiden.


    • Thank you. Imgur confuses me, so I’m grateful for yours and everyone’s support in pushing the image forward. I’m confident now that the parents will get this.

      • Wow is all I can say. Aiden was my nephew and this is so AMAZING!!! I am wondering if it would be ok to somehow use this image for the shirts I’m having made for a walk/run to prevent child abuse in Indianapolis in April. Please let me know and thank you so much for this!!


      • Thank you Heather! I’ve given this art to the Father with rights to use as he pleases. It would be my recommendation to ask permission’s from him, since it is his now 🙂


  2. This is truly beautiful. What a wonderful gift, both of the artist and from the artist.


  3. You give me life like a breath of fresh air. This is a great representation of what life is about. Loving unconditionally & giving from our hearts. You are the best!
