These drawing requests make my 365 Women project much, much more fun and interesting. One day, I’m drawing an androgynous girl in her undies and socks. The next, a belly dancing gypsy, then an extraterrestrial with monstrous Venus Flytraps for pets, then a skull-toting mermaid. Not only do they test my versatility, they also keep my creative juices flowing, so to speak. For today, I drew flappers.
Meryl Bernardo requested for just one, but I drew her two. I put them in a jazz club – one is smoking a cigarette through a long holder, while the other one is drinking wine. I had to look up for a couple of photo references for their headdresses and clothes. Of course, these jazz-loving ladies of the 1920’s won’t be complete without an Art Deco backdrop.
