Well another one is done.. the beautiful Bettie Page.
In progress: Finished:
It started out as a 12x 18 but as I was drawing her back, it just looked out of proportion and just too small so I cut it in half! Todd said that was a bad move on my part, but oh well.. I'm drawing the same picture again but better!
So Disney has stolen my idea... they finally have drawn up an African American princess. Ok, so maybe they really didn't steal my idea.. but I did think of that years ago and I have the rough sketches to prove it. All 'who had the idea first' banter aside, it's about time they drew her up. Her name is Princess Tiana and of course, the movie hasn't even come out yet and there's already controversy. Her prince, is not, I repeat, not, black. Nor is considered white either - he's 'tan'.
Ok, so I can see both sides of this. While there are so many interracial couples out there today, and it's more accepted than it ever has been, why is this a big deal? But then again, coming from the other side, why couldn't Disney just made him black? Either way, it doesn't keep me up at night, but at the same time, why didn't they just make him the same ethnicity? I don't really get it - but - I'm just glad they finally made a black princess. It's about stinkin' time.. I mean, they have almost every other prominent ethnicity already.
Here's a picture of the happy couple:
And if you want the whole article - which I recommend reading, here's the link to that:
Good morning everyone! Ok wow.. lots of good things going on!
First off... I finally added my very first team member for Mary Kay! I'm sooo excited! She's an absolute joy to have.. and let me say that it was soo worth the wait. She's a gem and she's going to do amazing in this business. Her name is Jackie, and I used to coach her when I coached the Dance Team at McNick. So last night at success meeting, she got pinned and I got promoted!! And everyone in my unit knew I always struggled with recruiting, and last night, when I got recognized for it, they cheered and clapped for me SO loud.. I was soo happy!!!!!
Secondly, I got all my hair chopped off again! It's not even an inch long in the back.. but it looks sweet. It's all spiky and the front is longer and hot pink!
And last but not least.. new artwork!!!
My best friends mom is going to love this.. she's a HUGE Lucy fan! Let me know what you think!
