WE’RE NOT SURE IF SHE’S SUPERGIRL, LOIS LANE OR THE ATOMIC BLONDE BUT SHE’S BRILLIANT!
The other day, Calynn M. Lawrence released a project on her blog, entitled “Superman Is Dead” and people are going nuts! It’s a series of artistically symbolic photos that represent her journey through heartbreak along with a lyrically insightful spoken word poem. The subject is a man whom she introduced as “Superman” in various interviews when asked about love interests such as her Glorious magazine cover, The Fire Behind The Fresh Faces Project and originally her My Time magazine interview.
Don’t worry, we’ve got the link to the project here: Superman Is Dead
To many in the Public Relations industry, she is known as “Supergirl” not only for her astounding work with her nonprofit, The Fresh Faces Project, giving free and discounted marketing services to small businesses but because of her profound ability to make it happen with her clients, and fast! We must admit, for someone who is freshly twenty-two, she has accomplished a ton, more than most!
However, in this project, you see a side of her that she rarely exposes to the media; vulnerable, angry, hurt, and then restored. It was as if we were with her the entire time she went through this process! Every girl who has ever had their heart broken can definitely relate to this, even if you don’t have the comic book knowledge to catch all of her snappy references. Here are a few of our favorite ones:
“Runnin’ his mouth like sports, Quicksilver, rapido”
“Superman mistook her for his fan, his flunky, Krypto”
“Tryna take away her power, lights out, Electro”
“All that to get buzzin’, Yellow Jacket, but you couldn’t sting Joe”
Understandably so, she has been praised for her courage and her creativity with this project. Despite a few die-hard Superman fans being a little offended, she has gotten a great response from the public and has gained the stamp of approval from many. With several news outlets and blogs releasing articles about her latest project, she is keeping her interviews limited due to a tight schedule. But, she was able to answer one of the million dollar questions for us: “Who is this Superman, given muse for one of your biggest projects ever?”
Her answer: “I have clarified a couple times that I will not be releasing the person’s name. Mostly out of general respect for that person’s privacy, but also because his identity is not important to the impact of Superman Is Dead. He is an everyday guy with no major platform or brand to boost readership. I created this as a means of venting and working through my emotions when I was coming to terms with the entire situation, also to officially deaden my previous statements about the person since they were made publicly. I’m a fairly good businesswoman but I’m an artist first and things such as this are the keys to my peace. Superman Is Dead, hence I laid to rest the canonized image that I once had of him, as ‘Superman.’ Granted this whole thing has blown up bigger than I ever expected, and I’m so grateful, but I think it’d be a little too unprofessional to bare his name. He knows who he is and that’s all that matters. It’s not even any animosity towards him at this point, I’ve moved on and wished him well.”
We like the diplomatic attitude! Although she’s got the ability to reveal it all to her audience, she has the decency not to. With a personality like that, she’s gonna go far!
