Drawings for a couple of new pieces:
The tattooed lady...
...and the Dog Face Man.
These drawings aren't entirely accurate to their subjects. The tatted lady is kinda 40's pin up styled, and as far as I know the "dog face men" never bared it all the way mine is doing. They usually wore suits, I suppose in a dignified contrast to their very hairy faces. But they were fun to draw and so far everybody who I've shown them to has a kind of mad giggling reaction to Mr. Dog Face...I guess cause he looks so smug, like "Yes I have long hair completely covering my face, and yes I'm a side show attraction...but I'm rockin' it."
While I was searching for images of bearded ladies and the like, I found The Human Marvels, which is awesome! Lots of pics of sideshow folks and little biographies about the performers. It's worth spending some time with if you're fascinated by anomalies and weirdness (which I am).
As far as Miss Librarian is concerned, it would seem that green won the vote after all! I'm about half way through her painting right now so you'll see her soon. Thanks everybody who put their two cents in!
I'm going to go pick apples this weekend and hang out in Northern California, with my dad, where it is actually FALL, and the leaves have changed color. I'm going to wear a sweater and drink tea and make apple crisp, and in commemoration of that I give you Mr. Fox:
Have a loverly weekend!
