I haven’t gotten around to drawing this gal in a little while, and folks are starting to wonder if everything’s okay. You can’t see it now, but I decided to reeeeaaally throw back on the throwback.

Magical Girls are so important.

I remember pretty well being in the first or second grade, not speaking much English, ambling around on the playground, and getting picked on all the damn time by the other boys. And every single time, there would always be little girls coming to my defense, yelling at the boys for being ding-wads, and shoving wood chips down those little dudes’ shirts if they wouldn’t let up. These girls, they were like EIGHT. And they were looking out for everybody.

And I love all kinds of superheroes to this day, but magical girls are special to me because they tend to come from a space of valuing relationships and finding strength in each other. The Capes tend to come from a place of I-can-hit-you-harder-than-you-can-hit-me. 

So when I saw Sailor Moon for the first time I gravitated SO HARD toward the whole concept, the genre, because they reminded me of the folks who were my heroes in real life while the Capes tended to remind me of my bullies.

Senshi Study Sesh!

This was the piece I submitted to the Meatball Head Sailor Moon art show in LA at Meltdown Comics! The show was this past weekend and was curated by the wonderful Nico Colaleo, who had a bunch of amazing artists in the industry contribute to the show! I heard that it was a blast, and wish I could have been able to make it.

So many thanks to my friends Gyimah, Ben and Scott for helping me out! I have much to learn, but was eager to try something new with environment, perspective, and colours. The colours have been tweaked since, but otherwise the drawing is the same :)

I’ll post some close ups later! Enjoy!
