So I'm four days late, but this is a time of year is when I say something very patriotic with a cartoon. And who none other to help me is DC's Wonder Woman? With her patriotic garb and all...
Oh, and she's engaging in that new American pastime Texting and Driving. Do you ever hit that steady speed on the highway and take a quick glance at the drivers next you? If you do, chances are they're right there texting away on their phone, eyes OFF the highway and glued to that little bright piece of shit. As if something is more important than controlling the glass-windowed cage you're steering at 60 mph. Or they might be going 45 slowing down the whole damn lane. Either way that's shits annoying. Some people may have the focus to do the two at the same time, but the ones who don't have the potentialto fuck shit up royally. So why take the chance? Put your stupid phone down for 20 or so minutes and just drive.
On a lighter note, as for the piece above, well, I love Wonder Woman. I thought it would be funny to draw her texting and driving, pissing off other vehicles, mainly because I see a lot of it when I drive. Take a look next to ya and you'll see it too.
Today I saw a post about the top eight women wanted by the FBI here in the US. Reading it was a lot like reading a rogue's gallery list to a secret agent. Some committed some horrible acts of violence and piracy, while others just committed atrocious white collar crimes. Crimes of passion, crimes of money, crimes of revolution. It inspired me to draw out these characters as I saw them in my head based on the mugshots and what I imagined they wear and how they behave. Here's the POST.
Hopefully you'll be inspired to do your own searches on some of these women, and find out what their cause is (was). While some of these crimes are heinous, others are quite revolutionary. As far as the likeness, I did take a lot of creative license to craft these figures, so I would no way consider these entirely accurate to identify these fugitives. If you feel like chasing these bounties better find a better picture.
I enjoyed this lil' illustration project so much I prepared a PDF for you to print out so you and the kids can color these illustrations! Just download, print, and color!
HEY KIDS! Download, save, and print the PDF from HERE.
...or at least trying to. One cool way I found to keep the brain and pencil going is by following @sketch_dailies on Twitta. They hit you with a daily prompt, you draw it and tweet it. It's that simple. They retweet the best ones, and it's a great way to see what other artists are doing and how to link up with some of them. I've only posted 2 so far, these.

Been a fan since middle school, but this is only the second time I've drawn Sailor Moon, believe it or not.
