Bureaucracy vs. Sketching: the Final Showdown [Apr. 8th, 2009|03:02 pm]
Ellen Lindner - Comics and Illustration
April is fun month! And I mean that in the most sarcastic way possible: this month has so far brought with it levels of bureaucracy I'd never dreamt possible (naive, I know).

In order to get back into drawing, in the midst of all the crazy, I'm taking a page from jabberworks's book and starting some daily sketches.

The only rule: they have to be fun. REAL fun. Which for me, means fashion, flowers, and color, with the occasional bit of collage. For today, anyhow. :)

Enjoy...more on the way.

Not only do I love the drawing, I covet her stockings.

Luckily for me, I think most of what I draw is fun!

Ha ha...well put!
Glad you like it, Jenny, thanks a lot...I think I might have seen you rocking similar stockings on occasion, back in the day! The photograph the drawing's based on is from a 'my favorite outfit' type feature in a British magazine...I couldn't resist jazzing it up a bit!

Ooo, lovely piccie!

I know what you mean about bureaucracy, I'm planning to do my taxes tonight. I am so excited I can hardly breathe.

Ha ha...you ARE very stylish. I wish I had the budget for the Giles Deacon number this chick had on in the original photo...I went for more of a Marimekko vibe in the drawing, but the real thing has its own charms. Oh, to be filthy rich! :)
