Me Draw Meela

As I've mentioned before, I'm a big fan of SpaceBase 8. In fact, it's the only webcomic I read. No, seriously it is. Anyway, just for giggles I thought I'd draw Meela, one of the characters in my own style. What makes Meela so ripe for reinterpretation is that even though artist Dave Smith's style is so distinctive and a big part of Meela's look, she's also got some elements that can easily stay intact and make her recognizeable even if she were reinterpreted. Those cat eye glasses, the hipster hair and clothing...

Anyway I'm really making this sound like a bigger deal than it is- all that to introduce my doodle. Meela is Space Base 8's resident administrative assisstant, though she very rarely seems to be at her desk. But that's how I drew her, filing papers. Even in space, there's lotsa paperwork.

You might want to check out Space Base 8 for yourself. Aside from being funny, the art is incredible. Check it out!
