In Guest Gallery Three  

we are delighted to display several more illustrations by illustrator / mewsician /  cosplayer Rebecca Brogden, who was the guest for our September 2009 Mew, nya! Firstly of those is the purrticularly interesting redrawn mermaid upon the "Enchanted Waters", nya! On the left is the original 2008 version, and on the right is the 2019 remake, nya!

We think both are quite lovely, but the evolution of Rebecca's style and technique is quite striking, nya! After that is Rebecca's adorable image of the bunny girl and her pet rabbit out for the "Bunny Stroll", nya! This wistful bunny girl is wearing the purretty off-shoulder, short Pink dress as she hugs her cute happy White rabbit as the flowering shrubs bloom vernally, nya!

Then we are cordially greeted by the chibi - style version of Rebecca's catgirl character Eamane, who says "Thank You" to her patrons, nya! Eamane resides here on the island with her niece Hannah and boyfriend A.J., nya! Purrhaps y'all have seen the purrior pics of her, nya? Rebecca used the pencil, pens & Copic markers for this pic of her in the Lavender Yukata, nya! 

Nextly is Rebecca's pencil, pens & Copic marker illustration of the female faerie's "Flower Magic", nya!
