Haven’t done a normal Black & White drawing for a while (ballpoint pen & paint pen).
I don’t think Marilyn Monroe was ever a Playboy bunny but she’d probably make a great one, so I gave her the ears.
I’m subtly subverting the vintage Vogue icon but in more of a playful than disrespectful way.
The thing about spending two weeks drawing from old photos and blowing them up larger by hand is that you can actually correct pixelation and image artifacts in the original photo; generally making it higher resolution, more defined.
“Bunny Monroe”, ballpoint pen & paint pen on paper,
45x30cm (not inc frame), 2017.
