I’m not so sure why I got so much positive traffic these past couple of weeks, but I’m happy to have it :)  So I spent a part of yesterday making this piece as a way to celebrate and welcome my new followers with a fresh doodle.  I just made up this character but she’s clearly an amalgamation of several 80s, anime, female protagonists. I grabbed the background image from something else I’m working on in my spare time. It was designed by the insanely talented, Brandon Cuellar

“The Damascus community firmly stands behind the belief that “we are all connected.” Sacred geometry not only is powerful visually, but also represents the perfect mathematical, visual, and energetic balance of lines that make up all the material within our reality. By infusing these shapes through our projects, the message is not only portrayed but also felt.” -Quoted from Bassrush interview ( photo by @TigerDiv )
