The page in which Chiquita formally introduces herself.
Which is kind of a big deal for me, to tell you the truth.

I came up with Chiquita around four-or-so years ago, and I’ve had this scene in my mind for a large portion of those years — drawing it a few weeks back, and now posting it, feels really really good.

Feels “right” to have this out there — out of my mind’s eye and displayed in a semi-tangible, shareable form. Finally.

For I have watched her watching them for quite some time…

(N.B. I gave Chiquita the surname “Hernandez” in honour of my friend [and long-time supporter of my work] Celina Hernandez, who is a fantastic artist and a genuinely lovely person.)
