And the series is finished. I can't remember if I ever done a series of drawings... I mean without a treat of money loss, flunking at school or my boss being mad at me. Which in itself is wonderful The fact I like most of them is just a bonus. On the other hand it might just be a way am procrastinating making food and interior drawings I promised my agent. It turns out, and this was a big surprise to me trust me, I suck at drawing food. It turns out I cannot translate the appetite and salivating am feeling onto a paper... My food doesn't look neither cool, nor eatable, nor yummy or god forbid sexy... It just looks like "How old is that sandwich?". Not a look that's easy to sell. But am trying and trying, maybe something comes out, if not I can just kiss those commissions goodbye... Luckily I don't need the money (wink wink)! In the meantime enjoy the rest of my Miu Miu series.

I have been working on a project for which I had to visit Miu Miu page. Have you seen images from this collection? The ones with Mia Wasikowska.... AM a big fan of hers, but that's not important here. I was just blown away by everything here and instantly felt inspired. I just wanted to express them my way. Just like art should be ( though am not implying am an artist, but that's a rant for another day...). Anyway, I have been working on these on stolen time for the last week or so. These are just two, am planning to make another 2 in the series, but as it's taking long, thought it would be smart to post something. I hope you like my take on them. Madame Prada really knows what she's talking about. I mean these are not my usual style at all. I don't do patterns, I am not so much into retro either. Even this smidgen of Frieda Kahlo I feel she is channeling here is not my thing ( although I have great respect and admiration for Frieda)... But somehow all together. I just had to do it!
