I don’t have a LinkedIn account but, if I did, I could possibly list as one of my skills “Draws creepy eyed children from yesteryear with proportions that are wonky to an often unsettling degree”. I did a whole series of drawings based on vintage photographs last year and most had wack proportions and many were bobbleheaded. Apparently I have experienced zero growth since completing that series because this pair of sisters might be the most big-headed figures yet. I don’t mind. I had fun drawing them, which is the main thing, and they make me laugh. The girls in the photograph I used for this illustration were holding baskets of flowers in their hands but I eliminated those from my drawing. Incidentally, this was drawn on the reverse of a very crinkly page so has not photographed at all well. It will flatten out over time because of the weight of the book.
Shades of The Shining! (Including in the original photo – those girls look quite sinister. I know it’s just because they aren’t smiling as we would be.)
The Shining is one of my favourite movies so I actually think I am drawn to photos of creepy vintage girls for that reason.
They do look like sisters…I do have LinkedIn account and have no idea how to use it. Had it for years from when we needed to find someone for our pasture raised animals.
My husband and oldest son have LinkedIn accounts but that kind of professional networking and online presence has never been relevant to my career.
These girls look as if the are dressed up, don’t really know why, and might put a curse on you because they are cross about it. I love them.
I think they are fun!!!
