New illustration I just finished that will be featured in Gallery 1988, partnered with Hello Giggles, one of the websites/projects with Zooey Deschanel. The artwork could only consist of females from old school young-adult literature (Nancy Drew, Sweet Valley High, Babysitter’s Club).
Honestly, I never read any of these growing up; I wasn’t interested in finding female role models in any of those books. I was more into the sci-fi and fantasy genres, and reading Nancy Drew these last few weeks for research was a bit of a struggle. The reading was easy of course, it was the fact that it was such a product of its time! And she’s so unbelievable without any faults whatsoever!
