Life, Art & all the brush strokes in-between

Thank you for taking this moment to enjoy my artwork. I’ve been an artist and designer of sorts my entire life. But my true artistic journey began when I became a dad; then lost my own dad, comedian David Brenner, a few months later. My dad was my personal Superhero, and signed every note, letter or email he ever wrote to me my whole life with these words: “HEART, Dad.” On his last trip to Boulder, he held my son, Wesley, at his Bris.   This was a priceless moment that my wife and I will never forget.


Watching Wes discover his own heroes is an amazing thing. When I’m painting one of his favorites, I look for the moment when I can tell exactly what feelings or thoughts the character is having. Pooh sulks over his empty “hunny pot.”   Tigger wants you to bounce with him.  Suddenly, I’m Wesley’s age again, on my own hero quest.  His childlike wonder has inspired each of my canvasses, adding his own bit of magic to them.


As a stay-at-home dad, I feel really lucky to enjoy this precious time with my son.  We paint outside a lot, and he helps with the backgrounds of most of my canvasses.  When we feel a cool breeze on our cheeks, I like to think, “There is a kiss from my Dad in the wind for each of us.”


Wes knows that to be a true “Superhero” you need to nap, and that the world becomes even more magical every time you wake up.  I hope that what we’ve created reminds you of your own inner Superhero, gets your imagination going, and inspires you to be a bit of a kid again.   And, if you are a parent like me, I hope that your own mini Superhero takes decent naps.  Who knows?  Maybe they’ll be a Superhero Artist sometime soon.

"Superhero Nap Time, a pop culture-inspired small art company in Longmont, is the artistic brainchild of freelance graphic designer Cole Brenner, and it's a very personal endeavor. While taking some time off work after his father passed away two years ago, Brenner started painting and making toys as part of the healing process.

Brenner, 33, works from home and simultaneously takes care of his son.

"My son Wes is two years old; I don't have much time," said Brenner, 33. "And art's tough. There's a fun part where you're painting and then there's a marketing part, a selling part and shows. It's not like I have a ton of time to divide between freelance design and this."

Wes, though, provides the inspiration for Superhero Nap Time, and he even came up with the name. Through reading stories such as " The Giving Tree," "Winnie the Pooh" and "Where the Wild Things Are" to his son, Brenner is able to add to his initially abstract images.

Wes helps with the painting too.

"He'll always bust out paint markers and paint, usually at the start," Brenner said. "Once I get past about 70 percent, I'm like 'OK, no more painting on this one.'"
— Brett Callwood
