You Unnecessary Spot Illustration for Today: Julia

I'm posting this to break the ice, or something. It was drawn for the Washington Post's old Book World section. Damn, but Julia Child is fun to draw!

I love this art. I should have bought this for the pie maker at Casa Sparks!

Love the cartoon even though not Julia! Is that love the cartoon; not the cartoonee?

59 pyramusNot to sound nitpicky obsessive, but--I love how the top of her head is rather flattened at the end of the paper, almost like her 6'2" height couldn't be contained. I love the tidiness of her cups and spoons and pans (true in real life,) and I love this tiny squiggle in her garment that could almost pass for a fly (if you wanted it to.) For a moment I half wished her tiny bottle said "creme" instead of "cream," but...one doesn't challenge the decisions of the master. I am afraid I enlarge your work to study it. I really zoom in on your water coloring techniques. One could write an essay on Julia's cheeks, alone. I use your work as templates for me to learn.
