For a long time, I've wanted to do a series of drawings depicting my ten biggest cartoon crushes...but now that I have a girlfriend, I can't really call them "crushes" anymore. Still, I respect these characters, and I wanted to pay tribute to 'em anyway. So here we go, counting down from #10!
I'd be stupid if I didn't include Jessica Rabbit on this list at some point. Watching Who Framed Roger Rabbit for the first time when I was a kid, Jessica was the first woman (animated or otherwise) who made me first perk up and go "Whoa, hello, women are awesome." And of course, Kathleen Turner's voice acting really gives her that perfect sultry tone, guaranteed to drive men wild, while also being quite clever at the same time - she loves her little hunny bunny Roger, so much that she's willing to bash him on the head with a frying pan to make sure he won't get hurt. ("Makes perfect sense.") And any toon who's brave enough to fire a gun at Judge Doom earns a page in my Awesome Book. So what keeps her at the #10 spot? Well, her figure is entirely impossible - there's not a woman alive who could ever hope to have those breasts, and those who do are simply deluding themselves. Kinda builds up false hope among us geeks, don't it? If nothing else, Jessica proves that there is such a thing as having a body that's too perfect.
