Issy Archer

An old character design. "The last 9-year-old girl to play Big League baseball was Issy Archer of the 1923 New York Yankees." Needed a girl both athletic and artsy, confident and mature, who looked like she'd fit her time period. The bottom illustration (cropped here) is my favourite in the book, mostly because I resisted my usual urge to shove everyone and their giant heads tight against the foreground.
