So in 2014, while Space Dandy was airing, I had a little ongoing series called the BooBies Calendar. It was a simple premise, a lewd in-universe pin-up calendar for the Hooters-esque chain BooBies from the show. I thought the series was going pretty well, some of the old entries still kinda hold up today even, but I ran into a snag with it. My June entry was based on a background waitress (like most of them were) featured in one brief shot early in the series. I made the pic, and then shortly afterwards the penultimate episode of season two aired. The episode focused heavily on Rose Reginald, a BooBies waitress who had a very similar design to the background waitress from the beginning of the series. I don’t know if they re-used her design, or if they were meant to be the same character or not, but it made my June page feel… incomplete. I’d used the earlier design, where I only had one small shot of her to even reference from, and now there was a real named character with a complete design that I could’ve used instead. I kinda lost my interest in the series, and ended up dropping it (along with all my other in-progress Space Dandy content).
Recently I’ve been being re-exposed to Space Dandy a lot, and I’ve decided to pick this project back up and see it to completion. Seven or eight pin-ups isn’t nearly as daunting a task as it once was for me, and I think I can probably finish this during 2023. I wanted to correct my biggest regret with the series first, though, which meant remaking the June page with Rose’s accurate design. I re-used a lot of my original art, but re-drew her head and flipped her for an angle I think looks better with her hair style. I hope y’all will enjoy this pic, as well as the later pages whenever I manage to get to them.
