kim possible

For A While I Was A Cynic About My Childhood But Screw It:

High School Musical was awesome.

“That’s So Raven” was amazing.

I still watch the first three Halloweentown movies.

“The Suite Life of Zack and Cody” was cool.

Nothing will ever replace “Kim Possible” in my heart.

“Phil of the Future” doesn’t get enough credit.

I still remember Now You See It, Get a Clue!, Phantom of the Megaplex & The Scream Team. (I can’t really find a GIF for that)

I would still watch a third season of “American Dragon Jake Long”.

I wish “House of Mouse” was still on the air.

Twitches was awesome.

I never really got into “Lizzie McGuire” & “Even Stevens”…but I wish I had.

There are still songs by Hannah Montana in my iTunes library.

I’m still watch “Phineas and Ferb” with a passion.

What can I say? I was a Disney Channel kid.

so i’m rewatching kim possible and?? this show’s so great???

  • totally platonic kim/ron is established right away. he doesn’t complain that she wants to go to the dance with another guy (even though they’ve always gone together–and he doesn’t try to guilt her into going with him again either!!), only resolves to find himself another date
  • subsequently asks a pop star to go with him i’m?? the balls on this dude
  • ron has absolutely no problem with being the sidekick. he readily accepts his role as distraction and doesn’t spout any “i’m the guy so i should be the hero” bullshit
  • they save each other?? all the time??? like ron isn’t just a sidekick, he also has very heroic qualities and when he excels at something, kim lets him take charge
  • kim !! is !! a cheerleader !!! like cheerleaders are always written off as air-headed and ditzy (and i am also very guilty of feeding into that stereotype, i would like to apologize to every cheerleader i’ve ever dissed), but kim is so smart and one of the villains even says something to the effect of “if she were on the debate team she’d be much easier to beat.” so you don’t have to participate in academic clubs to be intelligent, young audience! and you can use your hobbies to help you in real-world situations!
  • everyone knows she regularly saves the world! people in foreign countries regularly contact her for help and she’s never dickish about it. whenever anyone tries to thank her/repay her for saving their village/family/country, she always shrugs it off. “it’s no big.” like??? she could be lording this over everyone she encounters. she could use it to her advantage whenever she wanted, basically. but she never does and i honestly admire her so much for it
  • she’s feminine!! she totally owns her femininity!!! she is an uncontested badass without being a ~“tomboy”~ or one of the ~“dudes”~. she wears makeup and likes to look cute and literally has her lip gloss/compact mirror weaponized! weaponized femininity i’m ognna cyr
  • i just?? i really love kim possible ok

I wanted to draw myself in the style of all of my favorite cartoons, both now and growing up. These are all my influences and the ones from my childhood are the reason why I am an artist today. So it was a really fun challenge. My style is really influenced by a lot by shows like Avatar, Danny Phantom, Teen Titans, and obviously Disney so it was kind of cool to channel the core of my style and isolate all the individual variables. 

Anyone who has actually watched all these shows gets brownie points from me.
