Marvel's Spider-Man artist teaching children to draw online
漫威《蜘蛛侠》的漫画师在线教孩子们绘画

So my name is Will Sliney, I'm an artist from Marvel Comics. I've been working for Marvel for about eight years, and I'm best known for my work on Spider-Man and now Star Wars.

我的名字是威尔·斯莱尼,我是漫威漫画公司的一名艺术家。我在漫威工作了八年,我最出名的作品是《蜘蛛侠》和我目前正在创作的《星球大战》。

You know the schools closed down in Ireland and everyone was a little bit down, but someone online had sent me a picture that their kids drew because that's what they were doing with their time off and it brought a bit of a smile to my face, so I figured, you know, I could put a bit of direction on it and, you know, put up a theme for people to draw, thinking it would just get, you know, maybe a hundred or so drawings or something like that, but it really just took off, and now I have to keep up with the amount of people that want new challenges every day.

爱尔兰的中小学停课了,大家的心情都有些低落,但有位网友给我发了他的孩子们画的一幅图画,因为这是孩子们停课在家时做的事情,这给我带来了一丝笑容。所以我觉得我可以稍作引导,定下一个供人们绘画的主题,当时我以为只会收到100来张画,但这个活动一下子大受欢迎,而现在我得尽力满足很多人每天都想要新挑战的需求。

It's all for a good reason, it's all in really really good spirits, so that's good.

这个活动的初衷很好,它充满了正能量,所以很好。

With me working from home as well I suppose it's a bit of a challenge when you've got kids at home that you need to keep them entertained. So, it was a bit worrying in terms of how [we would] the whole logistics would work out, but, yeah, with the help of Will and different initiatives like that it's been really helpful.

“我也在家工作,这样当你有孩子在家时就比较难了,因为你需要让他们时刻都开心。所以,我们本来有些担心具体该怎样安排才能在工作的同时照看孩子,但有了威尔和其它类似活动的帮助,这给我们帮了大忙。”

One, it's doing something creative that kids enjoy and they're all learning from it, but two, it's really helping the adults seeing the drawings that the kids are doing.You see how happy they are doing them, everyone that's shown a picture of themselves with the drawing there seems to be a big smile on their face and you can't help but feel good after seeing something like that.

第一,这是孩子们都很喜欢做的一个创意活动,而且他们都在从中学习;但第二,它给大人们提供了一个可以看到孩子们作画的机会。你能看到孩子们在画画时有多么开心,孩子们在照片中拿着自己的画,每个人的脸上似乎都洋溢着灿烂的笑容,看到这个景象后你会情不自禁地感觉很好。
