Anyone who has seen my illustration posts or heard me on the Geek Fallout podcast knows that I don't do anything without a plan. So while its not for me, I was an eyewitness to blind buying this past week.
While out shopping with my neighbor Asia (she's the kind of person who should be post for the League as she fits more with the toy collector crowd) She was squeezing the Star Wars figure bags looking for a Boba Fett. "This one's a BB-8!" she declared matter-of-factly. I suppose the unique shape would give it away. She ended up getting a Darth Vader.
She did the same thing with the Disney Princess bags. She left with Tiana, Merida and Cinderella. She arranged them on my dashboard and had them sing Skyler sister songs from "Hamilton" the whole way home. She seemed satisfied.

(It would seem the cold doesn't bother Anna either.)
EDIT: One of the disadvantages to drawing digitally is that I'll often find myself leaping to render my idea as it first pops in my head, to jump on that idea while it's fresh and new instead of thinking through and sketching other possible interpretations. For example, this was the original drawing, that once finished, I realized, it wasn't really working.
