Fairytales & Nostalgia

I probably should be posting here more often, but I don't really want to make a whole bunch of blog posts in here containing only one drawing. Anyways, the pencil has been staying pretty busy, this time drawing stuff from my childhood and when I was younger...and fairytale (sorta) inspired stuff.


This one is of Baby Bonnie Hood, of the videogame Darkstalkers, made by Capcom. Its not really a fairytale, but seeing as how the character is based off of Little Red Riding Hood, I thought that it would fit. Basically, she's just Little Red Riding Hood with copious amounts of weapons and explosives. How cool is that? And just like the rest of the drawings that I've been doing lately, she's African American.

And here are some things from my childhood. I used to LOVE much so, that I couldn't even watch the Power Rangers because I felt like they were basically the store brand version of one of my fondest memories. So, here's an African American version of Princess Allura, who piloted the blue lion of the Voltron Force.

Speaking of 80s cartoons, I had to do one of Cheetara of the Thundercats as well. I'm sure she's running off to Lion-O's aid from the Cat's Lair or something.

And lastly, an African American version of Sailor Moon and her cat Luna.

And this is a drawing that I posted on my blog quite a while ago, but never got around to finishing it. And by 'finishing' it, I mean, just throwing a background on it. I need to do another one of Supergirl though...maybe sometime soon.

I'm still open and accepting commissions as well. Always feel free to email me at Illumistrations(at) Or you can send me a message via Twitter as well.

Without Wax,
