Go! Sweet Racer!

 This piece was for the Philadelphia Comic Con at the end of May. I've always wanted to do a Speed Racer piece, but wasn't sure how I wanted to illustrate it. Then I came up with a sick idea, what if Mojo Jojo was dressed as Chim Chim? That alone made me wanted to do a Speed Racer/Power Puff parody. The design was to mimic a well known Speed Racer poster so coming up with the composition wasn't too hard. After that it was just about drawing the characters which you can see below.
The toughest character to draw was Ms Bellum as for much of the tv series, no one has ever known what she looked like, except for one episode specialty (apparently).  Completed this piece within 24-hours before the Comic Con. With 2 hours of sleep, an Egg-McMuffin in one hand, and my portfolio in other, I went to artist ally with positive reception with this piece at the booth. Whoo-hoo!
