First-ish real illustration job!!!

Hey everyone! So sorry I haven't updated this thing in a while. We have LOTS to catch up on. Right now I am packing up my dorm room for the summer. I "graduate" and get my associates degree on Tuesday as long as the world doesn't end on Saturday. I am SO excited to relax this summer oh wait never mind. I am very fortunate to have two jobs and an internship for PMc Magazine! It is going to be very exciting. I have a lot more to say but I really need to get back to packing...But here is some news:
I got my first real paid illustration job doing a beach scene for coupons for sunscreen! It was fun to do something other than fashion and I am very happy. Hopefully I will get some more little jobs like this over the summer.
Have a great vacation, everyone!

Bettie Page: Style Icon

This is a project from last semester. We were told to chose our favorite style icon and do a portrait of him/her. I chose Bettie Page. She is super iconic and a LOT of celebrities are paying tribute to her look right now especially Nicki Minaj, Katy Perry, Dita Von Teese, and Beyonce. She is known for her adorable black bangs, red lips, curves, smile, and her tendency to pose in extravagant lingerie, bondage wear, and a whip in hand. That kind of stuff was pretty edgy for her time period- the 1950's. However, what not a LOT of people know about her is that she was very religious and her controversial modeling haunted her a bit later in life. I wanted to bring that into this piece by pasting together images of her bondage photos, her mugshot, and some old style images of demons and saints from Dover, into the shape of a cross.
