The very first cartoon I watched was "Sailor Moon" and the character that caught my attention was Sailor Mercury. She was smart, optimistic and had a strong will, basically characteristics that I aspired to be. Sailor Mercury is also the reason that I am pursuing a career in art. Most of my drawings that I have made over the years have been influenced, in one way or another, by her. All right, this sounds a bit creepy, but I must admit, if it wasn't for Sailor Mercury, I probably wouldn't be the optimistic, level-headed artist (or aspiring artist) I am today.
