I Can Can-Can

You can Can-Can too!

These girls are most definitely ‘Linked’.

in another life-time, when I went to fancy art school, and had a face piercing, and still thought Williamsburg was cool – I was obsessed with Burlesque.

This morning’s Illo Friday prompt reminded me of those fabulous care-free days where my only real problems in life were all-nighters, waiting for my scholarship money to come in so that I could lavish it on expensive pencils, and figuring out how to get the oil paint off the couch.

This sketch happened in illustrator. It took about ten minutes. I have a new goal to do frantically fast digital sketches on Friday Morning after I get Penelope’s emails and then to finish and refine the sketches over the week, in whatever medium they need to be fine tuned in. Then next Friday you can see where I actually went with the illustration. So check back next Friday ๐Ÿ˜‰ I’m telling you so I actually do it.

As always I’m a comment-loving girl of sorts.

  1. Awesome sketch. Awesome concept & interpretation. And awesome new goal. Yeah, that's 3 capital-A awesomes in a row, bam bam bam.

    Can't wait to see the developed piece next week!
    This one takes me back – my own burlesque-obsession was actually in 6th grade when I sold drawings of lines of can-can girls to all the little boys in my class for 25-cents each (by popular demand). This business was put to a screeching halt by my teacher, principal, and parents after one of the boys' parents were concerned that these girls were wearing what looked like little Playboy-bunny outfits (complete with ears, tails, and fishnet stockings). Apparently I didn't realize what the parents seemed to believe: satin bunny outfits = gateway porn.
    (true story).
    I just hope those boys' parents don't read your blog, you just don't have time to deal with the parent-teacher-conference contreversy right now, you're a busy girl!

    Hope you're finally getting a little spring! Love this sketch!

Today has been crap, but now it is beautiful. #gofigure Kisses! 
Nature My husband is the dreamiest. I'm pretty limited in what I can eat these days. We've sidelined dairy, gluten and legumes to help with my auto-immune diseases. There was something particularly tempting while we were in Park City this weekend. It boasted its delicious lime salt loudly. Alas, it wasn't anything I could eat. I lamented and went GF/DF etcF, and then quickly forgot about it. As with most things that cause me fleeting disappointment, Matt remembered. Last night when I got home from the studio, I found this little bottle waiting for me on the counter. He made it himself. #limesalt #love #chefwifelife Dragon swimming in a bathtub. We adopted this dishy-fishy in Mexico during the #happilyeveralvarez wedding week of dreams. There are few worldly possessions that bring me as much joy. ๐ŸŒˆ๐ŸŒˆ#mood #nofilter End of the rainbow. 
#happyeaster #cake In my own bed tonight, where visions of last week's Yellowstone vignettes dance in my head (mainly because now that I've got wifi back I'm clinging to my iPhone in the pitch dark.) #takemebacktowyoming #witchesbrew Happiness is where everything you can fit into a grocery bag costs $5 #Montana #thriftshop
