I liked her so much I finished her. The hair took the longest to do, but I’m really happy with how much they remind me of cinnamon buns. I kind of wish she had feet, but when I tried drawing them in, they just wouldn’t.
I don’t have any art for today, so instead some of the books I’m reading. “The Knife Man” by Wendy Moore, it’s a biography on the man who created modern surgery, and “Princesses Behaving Badly” by Linda Rodriguez McRobbie, the title of which I think is self-explanatory. These are both non-fiction by the way, it’s rare for me to pick up fiction anymore.
Not the dog, the hairstyle. You may be more familiar with it if you’ve ever watched “I Love Lucy” seeing as Lucille Ball sported this ‘do quite regularly. Just a doodle of a pin up girl in capris and a crop top ready for the summer heat.
While I was on my way home on Saturday, (trying to make a right onto Sandalwood) I saw a line of 3-4 vintage cars that had been restored driving by in a line. I would have followed them but sadly Saturday was the day my mom was throwing a party so I kind of couldn’t.
I’m fairly certain one of them was a 1950s Cadillac convertible, a Delorean, and I saw a Model T Ford. They were all so gorgeous! The Delorean was a really rich plum colour, almost black, with some red/blue shimmer when the sunlight hit it just right. The Ford, was black and the Cadillac was a pale green.
Then as I stopped at the Dollarama (to get some party supplies), in the aisle over was parked a a glossy black Chevrolet El Camino. At this point you’d have thought I’d have the sense to snap a picture of it, but I didn’t.
So that Saturday June 21st will always be “Vintage Car Day” for me.
I did it! A finished version of that doodle from a while back. And I didn’t muck it up (unless you count the fact that I dropped a chunk of avocado on it). Now I just need to dig out my proper camera to get a good quality photo of it. I think I’ll have prints of her up in my Society6 shop soon.
