Painted Hills

When I started this collage, I was going somewhere completely different with it. But I’m very glad it took this turn; it was incredibly fun even though I’m not quite sure how I feel about it as a whole. Collage is so freeing! ❤

Sailor Moon

While waiting for episode two of Sailor Moon Crystal to come out last Friday, I drew the first Sailor Scout I’ve drawn in years. Sailor Moon apparently released in Japan in 1991, three years before Kurt Cobain’s death. The North American release of Sailor Moon coincided perfectly with my childhood, and I grew up alongside Usagi and the company. Unfortunately, I’m not one of those people who was able to revisit it in adulthood and enjoy it all over again. Sailor Moon Crystal has come to my rescue with beautiful art and a harder storyline that more closely follows the manga. Also Mamoru’s character is so much better in this series: calculated, odd, slightly angsty. I often hated him in the originals.
