Wednsday's woman #14

On April 8th Annette Funicello passed away, she was one of my favorite Disney actors. When I heard the news I started sketching a few doodles of her from the first movie I saw her in, Disney's Babes in Toyland. I remember we had recorded it off the t.v when i was a kid and it  went right into my little library of movies i constantly watched. At first i was gonna do a piece from just that fil, but for whatever reason i felt bad neglecting her as a Mousketeer or her time as a beach bunny in the 60's surf films. Soooooo i decided to do all three. These are just my ideas that i got down in my sketch book . i hope to have the final pieces in a week or so. Until then listen to Annette sing a song that comes to mind around the first of the month. See ya next wed:)

Wendsday's Woman #12

And this awesome lady is Celeste, she's seen alot of changes since the first doodle my senior year at art school. Her back story is still in the works and still morphing as her character fleshes out. Though, just like Lilly from an earlier post you'll be seeing alot of Celeste this year. She was most difinetly inspired by all the strong women in my life.  I also wanted a strong female charcter who could kick ass and wear clothes at the same time lol. She may not be a size two but she stronger than you:) See you guys next week...aaaaaaaand i just noticed i didnt finish her gun  *sigh* lol

Wendsday's Woman #11

For this post I just wanted to share pages from my sketch books. I love watching dancers and seeing how their bodies move it's awesome to watch someone perform. I also been watching alot of arieal dancers lately too. It's so cool to see someone wrap them self in the silks and move so smoothly..its like magic :) The performance P!nk gave a few years back at the Grammy's while she sang and used the silks is one of my favorites, it gives me chills every time i watch it ... and maybe a tear :.)

Wednsday's Woman #10

Hi people, I'm back sorry for the short break. As it usually does, life knocks unexpectedly and demands attention. Annnnyways lets get back on track here, Im gonna upload a little extra to make it even. This is Lilly she's a singer growing up during the height of the Harlem Renaissance. She doesn't really have high ambitions to be well known as a singer. She just enjoys performing and sharing her gift at a little night club. What she doesnt know is that her gift is going to take her beyond what she thought was ever possible.
Lilly's story is just one of a few characters who your'e going to be seeing this year :)
