Rough indeed they are. Thanks to my friend Keren Albala, I became aware of the world of roller derby when I attended a match a few months ago. It was a completely different atmosphere than I had expected; I saw kids, parents, and grandparents cheering together for their favorite girls on the ring, as if it was as mundane as going to the park for a picnic. And, yet, there was nothing mundane about the roller derby girls.
They are really incredible athletes, who not only know how to compete with each other, but also know how to perform and put on a show; so ultimately, it’s just a really fun experience for everyone. I want to go to more meets in the near future, so hopefully I’ll get to sketch some more (and even make another category here in the blog just for it.) Enjoy.
