It’s been a long time since I’ve shared any of my personal illustrations, so I’m excited that I can finally share something new.

Meet my oginal character, Penelope! Penelope is a pin-up space cadet who fights crime and bad guys in the stars.

I drew this little skech, Penelope, earlier in the spring when I was bored at work. She kind of morphed into a whole series of poses and I have a bunch of drawings that I’d like to finish of her. I’m going to use her as my muse, and explore different techniques, poses, and push myself to get out of my comfort zone. It’s going to be a slow process since I’ve been so busy, but it’s nice to have this project in my spare time.

Are you working on any projects in your spare time that keep you sane from the chaos of work?

    Wicked! Love her orange glasses(?)!

    I’ve been using my painting class assignments to forget about the other assignments I’m not enjoying as much… I guess it works out a little anyway??

    Love it! She seems like a really cool character! Also on a superficial note, I’m all for the pink hair. :)
