When it was time for the Christmas card exchange at Get Messy this year, I was so excited to discover that I was going to be sending a card to Katie Smith. She has been such an inspiration to me this year. I enjoyed her Painting Galaxies class so much, I have discovered a new lifelong passion for cosmic art!
I decided this Christmas card would take the form of a comic. I always think of Katie as a space traveller and the character of Galaxy Girl began to form in my mind. I made an accordion book with pieces of 4″ x 6″ watercolour paper stuck together with washi tape. On the front pages I drew the panels of the comic and on the back I painted the longest galaxy in the universe!
Wishing you all a Happy Chanukah, a Merry Christmas, and a nourishing Winter Solstice. May your new year be filled with wonder and adventure and all your dreams come true!
And now, without further ado, I present to you The Adventures of Galaxy Girl!
