Class is Forever

Inspired by Dave Sim's new project (well, one of them!) Glamourpuss, I took this from the back of a magazine. It's been driving me crazy for months, sitting on our living room table. "Class is Forever." It seemed like something that would be on the cover of Glamourpuss, and he was drawing from fashion magazines.

I didn't pencil it first, and didn't spend a lot of time on the details (plus I'm no Dave Sim!) but I kind of like the way this turned out. I draw women like drag queens, so why not draw a woman who already LOOKS like one?!! I won't tell you who it is! (After all the plastic surgery, you probably won't be able to guess either!)

Is it Joan Rivers? Or Julia Roberts?

Plus neither one has any class! ;)

Kim Basinger? I have no idea! I am not up on my celebrities I guess. Inquiring minds want to know!

Oh, well I guess it wasn't who I thought it was!!! I guess her plastic surgery isn't that crazy after all.

It's a 76 year old fashion model named Carmen Dell' Orefice, who is apparently a huge legend just for being old, because all the pictures I've seen of her are in her Winter years.

Sorry to be such an ass magnet!

But I am working on your roller derby picture if it's any consolation!!!

Thanks for checking it out!
