Toons On Tap - Session 22: The House Wife




Need more pin ups in your sketchbook? May we humbly suggest this session...

Toons On Tap does our take of 50s pin up art with local singer and cabaret performer, Bianca Boom Boom! Bianca will be posing as a retro (and cheeky) domestic goddess.

Warmups

Below is something I am trying for the new year. I am going to create at least 1 or 2 warmup drawings/digital paintings a day, to keep the groove going. We'll see how it goes...

Toons On Tap - Session 21: She - Ra Princess of Power

Poster Created by the Fabulous Lauri Lewis!

Now on Tuesdays! Dust off your sketchbooks for another evening of costumed gesture drawing. You are in for a treat this time...

Our model for the night is the filthiest drag queen in the GTA... Daytona Bitch! If you are a regular at The Rivoli, Crews and Tangos, or Woody's and Sailors, you are probably familiar with Daytona's biting wit, exaggerated gestures, and thoroughly offensive humour. 

She will be posing for us as 80s cartoon character She-Ra, Princess of Power. Expect an electric carpet ride through Saturday morning nostalgia. (You might want to keep the kids home for this one.)

Want to see Daytona in action? Watch this video:http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=shoMBdzCCcs
