MIKEY ESPINOSA – SAILOR MOON – SAILOR URANUS

Sailor Uranus, probably one of the first LGBTQ characters in anime! Known for her powers of Earth, I took inspiration from miners and rock climbers when it came to her design. Using ropes and Carabiners (I think that’s what mountain climbing locks are called.) Mikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Uranus bnw sqMikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Uranus close upMikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Uranus sq

MIKEY ESPINOSA – SAILOR MOON – SAILOR PLUTO

Sailor Pluto, also known as Setsuna, the guardian of time and also Sailor Chibiusa. Being in a lonely place, I figured she would feel more confident being free hence why her clothing is limited and free flowing but she is still burdened by the weight she has which is the guardian of time. Arrows are a theme to show the power of time travelling and there are also clock themes in her design. Her tiara also shows a half moon and half sun to show that she is of both day and night because time is always constant.Mikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Pluto bnw sqMikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Pluto sq close upMikey Espinosa - Sailor Moon art - 2017 - Sailor Pluto sq

MIKEY ESPINOSA – RACHELLE ANN GO AS FANTINE (LES MISERABLES)

Last year, I had gone to see Les Miserables in the theatre in Londons West End. Rachelle Ann Go had just finished her role as Gigi in Miss Saigon and with such a powerful and emotional voice I wanted to hear her sing “I dreamed a dream.” As usual, I was blown away and I just had to draw her as Fantine.

I did this by ripping pieces of paper and sticking it onto the base of her drawing to show how she became a victim of exploitation. Mikey Espinosa - I dreamed a dream - Rachelle Aug2016 raw 3She did an amazing job as Gigi and Fantine and I’m happy to hear that she is coming back to London to be in Hamilton!13781884_10154112619246998_4492931696892787224_n

MIKEY ESPINOSA – 4 BEAUTIES OF CHINA – YANG GUIFEI

Yang Guifei – Said to be so beautiful, her face would put flowers to shame (719 – 756, Tang Dynasty.)
Yang Guifei also knownas Yang Yuhuan grew up to be a beauty who caused the downfall of a nation. She rose to become favoured by the Tang Emperor Xuanzong and her family members gained high social ranks. The Emperor began neglecting his duties and giving his complete attention to Yang Guifei soon causing a rebellion against him and the capital. The lovers fled but soldiers soon caught them off guard and demanded her death. Without a choice, she killed herself with the people believing she had brought danger to their country when it was in fact the self indulgent emperor who had let go of his duties causing corruption within the land.
