My Super Late Thanksgiving Post – With a Bad Pun!

Standard

Happy belated Thanksgiving. I know that I’m five days late, but considering that Cyber Monday was just yesterday, I’ll just count it as one day :p

Here’s my drawing of a turkey that is the level of a five year old in Kindergarten, and if you think that’s bad enough, just wait, there’s more! I couldn’t resist adding in a horrible pun to go along with it!

So, how was everyone’s Thanksgiving weekend? Did you spend it stuffing yourself with turkey & mashed potatoes? Maybe you had to bite your tongue while listening to relatives you never get along with, or you could be a lucky soul that just stayed home & relaxed. I did all of the above.

Some of you must have been ripping apart others for a discounted flat screen T.V. during Black Friday, which is totally insane but I love you anyways. I’m not really of fan of shopping any time of the year, so I skipped that mess and ordered some things on Cyber Monday. (Thrilling, I know :p)

Anyways, hope everyone had a good Thanksgiving! Gobble, gobble!

Cartoon Drawing Inspired by the Glamour of Golden Age Hollywood

Standard

I have always enjoyed watching films from the Golden Age of Hollywood, so I decided to draw something inspired by it.

The hair is inspired by Veronica Lake, a starlet who is remembered for her ‘peek-a-boo’ hairstyle where one eye is covered by a lock of hair. This hairstyle was extremely popular in the 1930’s, but it went out of fashion during WWII when the women went to work in factories and had to keep their hair back so it wouldn’t get caught in the machines.

The eyebrows and eyes are inspired by Greta Garbo, the most famous actress of the era. Her eye makeup was intended to create a sleepy, mysterious look, which is said to have influenced Marilyn Monroe’s makeup.

The lips are inspired by nobody in particular. I just wanted to make it look as glamorous as possible. :p
