While doing some cleaning-up I found this which served as a base to My Girls studies (mastodon.art/@aaribaud/1022552). Now I need to find the energy to turn it into a full-fledged drawing.

Well, at least it's not *litterally* a case of .

After looking around a bit, a first draft of my future . Much to fix as this is a rough just to get thjngs rolling, and I haven't drawn for months. Also, got to think up a punny greek name.

Thanks to all of you who faved/boosted, and to @fluffyfied for his advice!

Of course, the whole process made me think of "Les Passantes" (youtube.com/watch?v=vvjhsZYaof -- sorry: youtube AND French. English version here youtube.com/watch?v=3Yjd48Dv1X. (still youtube though).

Yet I'm not sad for any supposedly missed opportunities; rather, I'm happy for the memories (elusive as they are).

This is based on an old but vivid memory of a girl who'd come to high school in a striped blue and white dress (which at the time was quite uncommon) and yes, wearing an assorted hat (which no other girls ever did).

As usual, done in
