Seventh of a 12 piece series that will become the 2005 Retro Girl Calendar. Don't worry, I'll come back to May soon. This is my personal favorite so far, I'm just very happy how the whole composition flows together. Vacation is the theme for June. Of all the vacations I've been on, I have to say Paris was my favorite. I would go back in a heartbeat to any of the places I've been, but especially Paris. There is just an absolutely rich cultural herritage everywhere around you, even the room you're staying in (we stayed in Montmartre, just down a side street from the Moulin Rouge). I also consider this piece a small homage to the incredible artist and illustrator Mary Blair. When I finished, I stood back from it and I could just feel her influence in in my color choices. If you don't know who she is, they just recently publinshed a wonderful compilation of her work, definately worth checking out.
This piece is dedicated to
, the wonderful people who watch me who have their birthdays in the month of June. It also happens to be my birthmonth, as well
Medium: Original sketch drawn over in Photoshop with the pen tool, not vectors since the lines and shapes rasterize. It is similar process, but by devart definitions, anything that rasterizes is not vector art. Details added with brush tool.
