New Artwork...

My model friend Ifigenia T., a.k.a. "Crowsreign" as KISS's "Starchild". Ifigenia is a Greek beauty with a really bad ass rock and roll attitude and me being a Kiss fan from waaaaay back I thought this was a good combo! If you want to see more of her go here or here to see the stock photo I referenced 2H and HB pencils on 18" x 24" drawing paper.

New Art..Ann Dvorak!

I just finished this last night, a graphite portrait of the great Ann Dvorak. I've had her on my list for a long time and was recently motivated to get this piece done by Christina over at Ann Dvorak: Hollywood's Forgotten Rebel who's been doing a post on Ann every day as part of her "A Year of Ann Dvorak" Blogathon and asked if anyone wanted to contribute. Also recently I watched "The Strange Love of Molly Louvain" one of Ann's few starring vehicles at WB and I really enjoyed the film...couple that with the fact that I watch "Three on a Match" once every 3 or 4 months or so and yeah, time for a picture of Ann! Tech stuff: 2H and HB pencils and a bit of white pastel pencil on 13" x 17" tinted canson paper

These just came today...2 vintage Lobby Cards for the 1935 WB production "Bright Lights" starring Joe E Brown, Ann Dvorak and Patricia "Mrs Artman" Ellis!

These are my first ever Joe E and/or Ann Dvorak Lobby cards and to be from my fave Joe E film and feature Mrs Artman in my fave gown she ever wore on screen and that they are such colorful and attractive cards in decent enough condition, I am extremely happy to have these in my grubby hands now!
