Prettiness!

Illustration Friday: “Vanity”

I wanted to draw something based on Ecclesiastes: “Vanity, vanity, all is vanity.” Like most good little agnostics, it’s my favorite book in the Bible. It proved too lofty for me at the moment, so instead I drew a pretty lady with her eyeballs popping out.

Illustration Friday: “Acrobat”

Next time we shall return to your regularly scheduled black outlines, but today I double-challenged myself with watercolors and painting from a photograph (my boyfriend, I think he’s part orangutan). It felt good to use watercolor on its own, instead of mixed with a dozen other things like I’m used to. I think it loosened me up (but not enough to do this).

Illustration Friday: “Breakfast”

The Breakfast Bikini!

The Breakfast Bikini!

I don’t get too many fashion design ideas, but the Breakfast Bikini has been kicking around in my head for some time, and I think I might make a real one (from fabric!)

Also, there are certain shapes I love to the point of fetishism, and the fried sunnyside-up egg is one of them. Unfortunately I ran out of my supply of collage-cut-outs from cooking magazines, so I had to draw them this time.

Sausage Swim Trunks for men are coming soon.
