Sketch Club EAST

Mark McDonnell formed this division where after lunch, Sketch Club EAST identifies a person of interest, usually for their unique or distinct characteristics too. The subject is briefly studied without drawing. Once back from lunch and back at the drawing board, the subject is drawn from memory. (Due to the sucess of The Sketch Club, this division was formed . . .thank you Marcelo, Steve, Marcos, and Noelle...you paved the way!)

My Little 1930's Flapper Girl


For this past week's memory sketch we deceiced to do a drawing of the young girl in front of us, but with the theme of a 1920/30's flapper thrown in the mix. With that in mind, it was a prefect way to pay homage with my artist ablitites, to the late great Freddie Moore. I tried to capture the simplicity of that era's designs and do it all in only one sketch just to test myself . . . and I was running out of time. So here she is:

THE ONE

THE ONLY

THE GREAT CASIDY

Very tastefully done. You can tell it's a little girl mimicking some "sexy stuff," but your ick-radar screened out what I've seen so many people do with this sort of theme (see (or better yet don't see) Jodie Foster in _Bugsy Malone_).

Casidy is playing dress-up, and you can tell she's got an eye for a Look, but she isn't scary-precocious... You guys have great respect for The Line, and you don't cross it, which makes it much easier to enjoy your work...
