The inspiration for this quirky series is interesting...a mash up of two of my favorite loves: female comic book characters and retro housewives. I have these two finished thus far: the once ferrel Catwoman bored with 1960's suburban life. (Although, she amuses herself with thieving from her naive neighbors.) And a cake-wielding, apron clad Wonder Woman in a 1950's style kitchen. I will soon get started on my renditions of Poison Ivy and Harley Quinn and will post them post haste!

P.S.These are hand drawn drawn and colored digitally, a method that I have not yet mastered but is extremely fun to play with!

C&C welcome!

Thanks for looking!

Thank you! I posted these a while ago, so nice to get some positive feedback on 'em!

i was beginning to worry I had accidentally offended the craftster gods...something I would never hope to do.

yay!
