Xena Color Pencil Portrait

Xena and Murphy Brown were me two female role models growing up, and I am eternally grateful for their influence.

Re-watching Xena today, I am still blown away by the fact that there were two females leads, often an all-female cast, and complex female characters with story lines that didn't always revolve around a romantic problem. Though I think the fact that I'm in awe of this today, says more about today than anything else.

This tribute drawing was done in color pencil on toned brown paper. Prints of this piece are available!
