I didn’t grow up watching Sailor Moon – unlike apparently 99% of other Millenials. I knew it existed, but I didn’t watch it regularly.
But when I DID watch it, I watched it for Sailor Mercury.
Mostly I watched for her because Mercury (the planet) rules Virgo, and that happens to be my astrological sign.
But also she’s smart. I REALLY liked smart girls in my cartoons who were also cute as heck. Surprisingly, not many girls on TV at the time were smart AND cute. You were one or the other. But Sailor Mercury dared to be BOTH.
So yeah. I drew her.
She’s available as a hi-res download now, too, on Ko-Fi and Patreon for just $1.
The original sketch will be listed on Storenvy soon.
