A Golden Era
Hello my lovelies! The weekend is finally here and I can't wait to just unwind (for a change!) after quite a busy week . So how did yours go? Had any special projects that got you running around like the Easter Bunny? :)
Well, this drawing was one of the commissions I've had to work on. As much as I like drawing custom portraits, what I like even more is creating the specific themes for them. For this particular one, I had the privilege to work with a super lovely lady, Victoria, who is a huge fan of The Ziegfeld Girls. So you can imagine my enthusiasm as I plunge myself researching for the perfect 1920s outfits. I swear, those days people can look their best effortlessly! The ladies with their stylish cloche hats and fur coats, the men with their suits and matching hats. Don't you just wish you could live in that golden era? :)
Unsurprisingly, I ended up spending hours just admiring Ziegfeld's gorgeous girls, and like most of my admirations, it lead to a couple of drawings of my own...
But what's special about these two drawings is that I finally have the chance to answer some of my followers' requests to create affordable originals for them to collect. So here they are, just for you. :)
I hope this weekend brings you plenty of happy moments and time to unwind.
