Sketch of General Fufu, a character in a new show I am designing called Galactic Girl: Attack of the Starbarians.  It is part of the Brick Theater’s Comic Book Festival.



General Fufu’s leotard on my dress form.  Can’t wait to find some silly gold Elton John glasses to go with it.  He will eventually have tights too.
