Women & Me

Some characters I've collaged & painted to make a picture book for girls aged 12+.
The Mum playing cards is a composite of Ellen de Generes & Doris Day. They kind of go together in an unexplained way, maybe.
The daughter is a lookalike for my Real Life daughter, Billie-Mae. She has Lily Cole's head & an Anonymous body. Lily is an English Model.
The Showy Off lady is a composite of a Holocaust Survivor & Diana Vreeland's talon-like hands.
The text has been appropriated from various magazine ads.

I am officially in love with your blog, from the paintings (fantastic!) to the Nancy Drew covers, to your crazy vintage.

I'm also Very Shallow.
