I don’t know why. I got to doodling the other day and my mind wandered to the chiseled-chinned science fiction heroes from yesteryear. So, before you knew it, this Space Cadet came forth. It was just one of those doodles that started with the face, and without a plan in my head, it grew into this guy. Even the space gun was an afterthought. I had originally roughed in a pointing hand, but thought the point would be more authoritative with a retro spiffy space gun.
Enjoy this Space Cadet. He may be the only thing standing between you and the destruction of the planet.
