The Best-Laid Plans of Mice and Men...

I had a full agenda today: Finish two sketches, work on quote for a new client that contacted me on Thursday, sketch out another Christmas Cutie, and sketch a couple of Space Ghost ideas for a commissioned painting. But I went to Home Depot to return something and they had a sale on palm trees. $16.99 for a wide variety of palm trees that are at least 5' tall. So, 2 palm trees, 5 pygmy date palms, and 11 white birds of paradise later, plus planting and watering, we have only a Christmas Cutie. Still need to get the quote done but now the outside of our lanai around the pool looks pretty great! And now it's raining, making anymore gardening interruptions impossible.

This Cutie has gotten herself tangled up in the lights. The background will be a bare tree. This piece will give the taggers a chance to animate the lights so it should be a popular piece. I hope. This was done on 11" x 17" copy paper.
Today's Legion couple is Supergirl (Kara Zor-El/Linda Danvers) and Brainiac 5 (Querl Dox). I always think of their relationship as a crush more than anything else. Most of the relationship was during the Adventure Comics run of the Legion and I can't even recall them kissing. Supergirl did join the Legion for a while during the Levitz/Giffen run and that was fun. The creepiest story though was when Brainy, missing Kara so much, made a Supergirl android while sleepwalking and planned to run away with it, believing it was the real Supergirl. Ugh! Explains a lot about his mental instability that came up later, doesn't it? :)
