Power Rangers on Splotch Monster Island!

Here’s a commissioned piece made for a fan’s wedding anniversary. Last year she purchased an embellished Splotch Monster vs Ultraman giclee print, and as a fan of all things Kaiju, she asked for a Power Rangers-themed piece, requesting specific characters in very specific outfits. This was a good challenge since I know virtually nothing about Mighty Morphin Power Rangers. I learned a lot while working on this though, and discovered how brilliant the deceptively simple costume design was, and how the monsters rivaled that of those featured in the old school Kaiju series, such as Ultraman and Spectreman, with regards to weirdness/coolness. Seriously good fun!
