This drawing isn't well-preserved but after all these years I still like the costume with its floating tendrils of special-effects power. "Mothgirl" comes from early in my artistic life when I was just building up my comic book and graphic story collection. Her costume is black and silver, which is always a great combination. I don't know what I had in mind for the original character but I imagine that the black wing tendrils around her had a psychoactive effect if they touched you, and she could extend or pull them in at will. They also appeared to act as levitation wings. It's been a long time since I drew like this.

"Mothgirl" original was ink on illustration board, about 3" x 4", early 1980s.
