And here we are again! This week, you get to meet Ells! Her real name is Elisa, but nobody calls her that.

Also, that Mini Cooper’s prototype has sat on my desk since 2004, when I bought the 1/36 scale model of it in Hamley’s in London. I actually pulled the thing out and posed it so I could get the angle for the picture. Cars are harder to draw than people realize.

Also also, that really is her natural hair. It just grew in like that. Ells really has no idea why, but it happened, so it’s there. It’s not pigtails, either – it’s naturally like that. She’s just as confused as you are.
