I’m participating in a group art show at Cartoon Network on April 7th, dedicated to The Powerpuff Girls.

I decided to draw Ms. Bellum.  I was disappointed to learn she isn’t a part of the new series.  I get that there were problems with the way she was portrayed in the original, but she’s always been my favorite character and clearly the smartest (her name is a play on cerebellum, literally a part of the brain).  So as a tribute to you, Ms. Bellum, I drew you as the boss ass bitch I always knew you were.  Send them power texts, just like Hillary.


I’ve produced my very first video for BuzzFeed and I’m sooooo proud!  Watch and share if you like!
