Up In Yo Ashes, Risin'

Yeah, I've been "enhanced". I heard all the Hollywood peeps are doing it these days.

Original recipe, bitches!
So the Phoenix has always had a special place in my heart. I've fallen so many times, only to rise back up and stumble onward down my path, whatever that may be. So I've been thinking about logos for stuff (eventually I'd like to make my own t-shirts), and this image is something that comes to mind. Or pen and paper. Both. anyway, Phoenix sketch, because anything that rises out of flames like a boss deserves tribute.

Kamala Khan, Rockin' It

I've been a bit busy (and lazy) and honestly haven't done anything post-it note wise I've been happy with...but having finished reading Marvel's Ms. Marvel series, I was inspired to at least sketch something. And I honestly need a lot more practice with doing females, so I present today's post-it note sketch.

The giant hand of Jersey City says, KAPOW 

If you haven't read the series and need something new to check out, I'd highly recommend it. Was it somewhat familiar with a teenager trying to find their place? Yes. But that's not a bad thing, especially when it's the POV of a teen-aged girl in our crazy American modern society. A muslim teen-aged girl, with both parents still intact. This isn't an introduction to a hero who takes up the mantle because of a major trauma (parents are still alive, and so are her friends). This is someone who wants to make a difference in the best way she can. I'm down with that. Even if she is from Jersey (yes, I'm a New Yorker, born and transplanted elsewhere against my will).
