My friend Michelle asked me recently if I'd like to contribute art to her Bunnies and Bows show in LA – and here is what I made for it! I really want the outfit I gave her… haha – the shoes too! Fashion dreaming through drawing.
A framed metallic print will be for sale at the show, and I'll also be doing a limited run of giclee prints for sale on my etsy… I'll post more about that in a few days!
I planned most of this out last week – It took me a while to figure out what I wanted to do, but the fun part is it left me with a lot of sketches to share! The sketch on the upper right with the giant carrot was my favorite, but it didn't fit well with the paper size I wanted so I decided to save it for another day.
I think these were the worst ideas of the bunch… but it's always good to get that sort of stuff out of your system while working.
Just when I was getting frustrated on ideas, I decided to doodle a retro playboy bunny and give my brain a break… and then after that I finally came up with the idea I wanted to do!
While I was working on all of this, I was trying to capture a feeling of Playboy Bunnies from the 60's and Pin-up Girls mixed with Lady Lovely Locks from the 80's… I really loved that toy and all her cute clip in animal hair accessories – which reminds me a bit of Michelle! Probably because of all the pastel rainbow hair colors and all the animals had little bows 🙂
If you live near Los Angeles, you should come check out the show on May 7th!! You can read more about it here. Take pics and send me some… I really wish I could go but I'm not able to travel there at this time. Another day! :)
