Fashion news













For machine drawings I often use photos from magazines
and such for orientation...













So I thought: why not actually use parts of them in
the drawing?













Liked it, and did it again...
Out came a person in a fashionably oversized cardigan,
for which I happened to find a fitting quote in an old
book on Virginia Woolf: "I admire your women, your pale
women, with their white skin and fair hair..." - says
some guy, about the Bloomsbury women, in Leonard Woolf´s
The Wise Virgins - and goes on, to tell you the whole truth:
"but I despise them ... your women are cold and leave one
cold - pale hair, pale souls, you know..."













Which doesn´t bother her in the least...

That is a very good idea. The one with the large cardigan gives a new way of looking at it.

ger hat gesagt…

Thank you... - depends on the kind of paper, Els, the more glossy the less it does oblige it seems...

She´s a bookworm, that gray lady... - and I´m still mixed up sufficiently to be smart enough not to put all my eggs in the real-world-basket...;)
