Here is a sketch of Die Kitty Die’s Kitty Ravencraft dressed as Princess the female member of the classic anime cartoon Spaceteam Gatchaman edited and syndicated as Battle Of The Planets here in the US during the late seventies.
As a kid growing up during that time, I was a big fan of the show even though I was pretty ignorant of it’s origins and the way it was chopped up for US audiences. I knew it was some sort of import from Japan much like Speed Racer and my much beloved Star Blazers, but I had no idea of how the show had been changed from its original form. To me, it had super heroes fighting giant monsters and that was all I needed!
This piece was done as a reward for Sean Allen, one of Kitty’s biggest supporters during last year’s Kickstarter campaign. I hope he’s happy with this one. I still have a bunch of sketches ahead of me including another piece for Sean so I’ll be posting them as I go. Keep checking back here… and as always… comment below!
