I just wasn't satisfied with a boring drawing and even worse -- rushed photoshop work. I like this one 'better', but I wish my drawing was larger so that I could have really fleshed it out. But c'est la vie! I like what I came out with!

ALERT. THIS IS A STYLISTIC FLUKE.
I have never done an illustration like this in my life. I was given a piece of "1950's ephemera" and was told to build off of it. I got a Vogue ad about how to look beautiful for your husband and your boss. So, my I try and use the so-called 'trite' subject of feminism and make a piece about the sad fate of a depressed houeswife from the 1950's. To get a feel for it, I looked at a lot of W. David Shaw, for illustrations from that era with a lifestyle feel to them. I'm glad I tried this piece out -- I learned a lot!
