Totally Sketchy: East Villager Wants to Draw Your Fave Femmes

Ray Sumser, the East Villager who drew pretty much every cartoon character ever, is back with a new project. This time, he wants you to suggest your favorite female characters from comic books, cartoons and video games, so he can create “a sampling of the often overshadowed and under-appreciated heroes that are pop fiction females.”

According to Mr. Sumser’s Kickstarter blurb, the idea arose because the epic creations he has shown in Union Square, including a crowd-sourced collection of comic-book villains, “tended to be boys clubs. This seems like something worth acknowledging and possibly changing.”

And so he has kicked off his latest with drawings of Miss Piggy, Belle from “Beauty and the Beast,” Patti Mayonnaise from “Doug,” Velma from “Scooby-Doo,” Valerie from “Josey and the Pussycats,” and Marceline the Vampire Queen from “Adventure Time.” You’ve got eight days to contribute $15, which gets you a print of the finished work with your favorite character in the mix.
