Jem and the Holograms


Poor poor Shana......she was my favorite.

I had her doll......

She had purple hair and a purple dress...purple was my favorite color....

But alas, I could not find a composition that fit everyone including the drummer and was still interesting to look at. So she was left out. Poor poor Shana.....
Maybe I'll just have to give her her own fan art to make up for it. If my lazy ass ever gets around to it.


This piece is SOOOOOO old. It was drawn OVER a year ago. Shortly after I discovered the Google SketchUp program. An incredible tool for getting tough perspectives or difficult to draw objects. I used it for the stage and microphones as well as the guitar.

I also started coloring this piece OVER a year ago. I didn't like how it was turning out. Then I got frustrated. Then I got discouraged. Then it sat on the computer for about a year, until 2011, when I tried again. And finally finished the bitch. I gotta stop doing that.

Good luck with your art and blog!

I'm seriously gonna have to try that Google SketchUP program.

I totally feel your pain when it comes to finishing pieces. I have some stuff that may never see the light of day. Need to finish what I start. Completion. Balls.

Looooove Jem. And your artwork here and the illustrations of the Misfits you did too.

I'd definitely be cool to see a shot of Shana - or else Flea from the Red Hot Chili Peppers - he plays good bass, too - although I feel that Shana's slapping technique is superior -

I find purple to be the most underrated color ever - society would be better with more purple out there -
