Tornado Allie


This is a piece I did a couple of years ago for my sister Allie who was writing a column for her workplace newsletter. The column was about adopting a super hero persona at work and asked for people to send in a description of their alter egos.

Allie had a lot of fun coming up with her super hero identity and I had a ton of fun drawing it. I started out with a few pencil sketches and, once I got something we both liked, I scanned it in and finished it up in Adobe Illustrator. Looking back on it now, I think I should have gone with a more simplified whirlwind effect. As it is, I think it distracts from the figure.
