Ginger Rogers

Sharpie drawing of Ginger Rogers. OH HOW MUCH I LOVE HER! Not completely satisfied with her mouth...kind of fucked that up in the inking process, but what the hell. It's still fun. Going to do a Fred Astaire piece to match at some point in the future.

Old Art, For Your Viewing Pleasure!

Just for the record, all of these drawings are pretty damn OLD. I've improved at least a little bit! Just wanted to share, though. :)
The proportions on this one got a little fucked up, but that's alright. I based it off of an old photograph of a ballet dancer in Ziegfield's Follies. I thought she'd make a nice faerie.
I love Chicago. I love it A LOT. I'm not gonna lie, I fucked up the face, but I'm really proud of the jail bars. For some reason, I just can't draw Catherine Zeta Jones. Ever.
Louise Brooks, a.k.a. The Greatest Person In The World. Oh how I love her!
Amanda Fucking Palmer, a.k.a. The Other Greatest Person In The World.
Another one of Amanda Palmer. Got it signed by her at a concert (that's the scribbly black thing over on the side there. Epic signature!)
This one was fun: Madonna on scratchboard, colored on the computer.
Another scratchboard piece, this one of Peter Pan. Thought I needed to do something original, so BAM! Peter!
Scratchboard: one of the most famous photos of Louise Brooks. Again, wonky proportions, but whatever. I like it.
Scratchboard: another Louise.
ANOTHER Louise! This one took forever and a day to draw, and in the end I fucked up the face (are you noticing a pattern?), but you know what? Her dress looks amazing, so I'm not too concerned.
Kate Winslet and Jim Carrey in Eternal Sunshine. Thought it would be interesting to draw a picture of Clementine actually disappearing gradually instead of instantly. Based on a screencap. (I think it's funny that men in my drawings are less um...advanced looking...than the women)
Scratchboard: Edward Scissorhands that I made for a cousin of mine. Added color to the butterfly later with colored pencils. That sucked. Kind of wish I'd left it black and white, but whatever.
I did this for my friend Ann: It's a picture of her daughter, Capucine. :)
Scratchboard: The Beast (according to Disney. Best Beast EVER)
Annie Lennox that I drew in high school.
