My Work // Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time Watercolour Illustration

Watercolor illustration of Princess Bubblegum from Adventure Time by illustrator / artist Karen Muray of A Rose Cast

I adore Adventure Time. I've always been a fan of animated shows, and this one has captured my heart lately. It's both mind-boggling and funny, while having a bittersweet and thoughtful side to it.

Undoubtedly one of the best characters is Princess Bubblegum. She’s incredibly moral and tirelessly devoted to her people, but still quite snarky and has a tendency to look down on people who don’t match up to her fierce intelligence. And she has amazing pink hair. So I thought she would be the perfect subject for a new little piece of fan art.

Like my Sailor Moon piece, it was fun to recreate an animated character in my own style. Unlike characters that I’ve done before from live-action TV, with these kinds of pieces I’m not limited to drawing the face of a real life person, so have a bit more artistic freedom in how to depict them.

I’m hoping to eventually turn her into a greeting card with additional text, as I’ve done before with Captain Jean-Luc Picard from Star Trek: The Next Generation, Malcolm ‘Mal’ Reynolds from Firefly, Willow Rosenberg from Buffy The Vampire Slayer and Sailor Moon. So keep an eye out for that. Now to figure out what her card should say …
