Another one from the vault:
Orphan of the streets and skateboarding daughter of justice, Jesse Sanchez fights a never ending battle against the forces of evil, nepotism, ninjas, and hunger as Street Angel!
I was a huge fan of Jim Rugg and Brian Maruca’s STREET ANGEL comic (http://www.streetangelcomics.com/), and wrote Jim and asked if he’d design a Jesse Sanchez sculpture for me. I was extrememly grateful that he not only provided me with some amazing sketches, and this piece was featured in the tribute art gallery of the STREET ANGEL collected edition.
In each issue’s frontispiece Street Angel fought a squid in increasingly unlikely confrontations (underwater hand-to-hand, wrestling, chess, etc.). This piece continues that theme where she’s downing a 40 of SQUID JUICE, the label of which Jim Rugg also designed.
And some wonderful people actually made a STREET ANGEL movie: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nnL9b1Hrrrs
