I've been thinking of Pippi Longstocking on off, here and there a lot lately!  It started off with some doodles of her in my agenda in a cafe one day, and usually that's where i get it out of my system, but this time there seems to be a litttttle more.  

For those of you that know her well, this is ultimately, only the Pippi Longstocking as i interpret it from my memories as a child.  However, i wouldn't say no to going back to the books again and rereading it before i indulge in some more doodles of Pippi and her friends!  The Pippi on the left is little Pippi, still missing her dad sorely every night; the Pippi on the right is slightly older, closer to the Pippi in stories we read.
