"Kirsten Larson is a pioneer girl of strength and spirit growing up in Minnesota in 1854."
I don't know about you, but I was a huge fan of the American Girls
book series when I was growing up, and Kirsten was always my favorite. Not only is her design just...AWESOME, but her stories really showcased her resilience and creative response to hardship.
For my 11th birthday, my Mom bought me Kirsten's blue dress from the American Girl catalog, and to this day it remains the most loved piece of clothing I've ever owned. (and yes, I know it's gingham and has little red flowers on it, but I didn't add them to this pic because they just didn't work with the composition).
Anyway, since it's sort of anime-ish style, I made the title a play on words, combining anime and American to get "Animerican Girl". Hope you guys like it! I'm especially proud of her basket
Oh, and if you've read the series, tell me who your favorite girl is!
Maybe I'll draw her!
