I draw comics, ride bikes, and eat melon; sometimes simultaneously.

Growing up in the 70s and 80s, Battle of the Planets was of the first Japanese anime to be ported over and make an impact on my life. Yamada was out but I missed the window, and this was before Robotech took over and changed everything. The Gatchaman designs were colorful, expressive, and fun. I loved the swan motif in Jun / Princess' look, so this was a fun one to do. There's also a companion piece available, of her civilian look here
