Even though I'm a child of the 1980s, I found most of my heroes in reruns of 1960s and 1970s television shows. They were all women. One of those women is Jaime Sommers: The Bionic Woman, played by Lindsay Wagner, who won an Emmy for her portrayal.
I've never been one to enjoy the tired cliché of the alpha-male character. Lindsay imbued Jaime with a strong sense of feminine energy, intelligence, understanding, and unending compassion that I feel is lacking from so many female heroes of today. Jaime was part-superhero but all woman, often solving problems primarily with her mind instead of her Bionic parts. Her Bionics weren't used to inflict violence. She was a hero I could, and still do look up to, as well as Lindsay herself.
In the third season of the series, Jaime got a Bionic Dog called Max (aka Maximillion/Maximillian). That's who Jaime is running with in this illustration. Running is, after all, Jaime's favorite way to de-stress, and dogs are great de-stressors.
I'm very happy to be reliving this great series through Region 2 DVDs as I continue my recuperation from three herniated discs. It gives me Bionic Inspiration.
