Best of 2015

Well Damsels, 2015 was kind of sparse. I've been dwelling on the same themes: Mysterious women of power being coy and aloof, while usually taking on danger head on. This old video from the Kung Fu Panda TV series was the only muse I found on this 2015 Holiday trip.

Up on the housetop...

No reindeer are pausing...

It's Cubcake, up on the roof, staking out the seedy bar across the street.
She's snug in her insulated power-suit, ready to pounce on some thugs when they come out.

It's not exactly Christmas, but the snow is helping her stay out of sight.
And she's still wearing a cute scarf, even though she really doesn't need it.

Basic coloring in Photoshop, bashed out over a rough sketch.
I also wanted to work on some perspective drawing.

San Bernardino shootings

It's finally dawned on me:

So many people feel that their lives are in the toilet, that they are willing to vote for Trump, or shoot up a community center in the name of a terrorist cause. 30 years of war in the Middle East, reaganomics and rush limbaugh have turned the world into such a meat grinder, that we will beg for a police state.

Paris, Colorado and now San Bernadino; I wish we had better protection. I wish the causes for this butchery could be tamped down.

 This sketch of a Zbornak in battle armor is all I can think of right now 
as a protective spirit for the Holidays.

May her big mine-proof armored hooves stomp on the fat-cats, gun nuts and crooked politicians who foster this rageaholic nightmare we live in.
