Hello Lover

Between talk of True Blood & 50 Shades of Grey* I was inspired to make a frisky little pin up to spice up your Monday. And isn’t it so true that great lingerie is the foundation for feeling extra sassy in any outfit you wear?! Plus you don’t want your doctor or the women in that open dressing room silently judging you because it looks like you have on your laundry day panties.

*Really tempted to call it 50 Shades of Horrible up there, but I’ll leave my personal opinions for the footnotes.

Red Hot Riding Hood

Inspiration, Muses, Video

Wanted to share this classic Tex Avery Cartoon. I’m sure most of you have seen it but for those who haven’t Red Hot Riding Hood is a play on the timeless Little Red Riding Hood tale, the cartoon in it’s entirety even starts as a traditional retelling with all the characters breaking the fourth wall, complaining to the narrator to give the tale a fresher take. Can we agree that what they cooked up is just plain kick ass and awesome?! I mean Red is a super mix of Hollywood’s heavy hitter babes of that era, the wolf is hysterical, and Grandmother is clearly my role model. ┬áRHRH is definitely in my short list of what influences me and my drawing style and I am still inspired every time I watch it.

 

*Wish I could embed my other Avery favorite, Red as Cinderella but since I can’t feel free to clicky click to take a gander.

Swimsuits and Sneakers

From the Sketch Book, Illustrations

Ha! and you thought there would be no post today! Thank goodness for slow workdays and the fact I remembered to bring along my sketchbook! I wish I was like this girl, who I imagine is somewhere near a beach and where walking the streets in a swimsuit and sneakers is encouraged.
