I love Josephine Baker so much...her face resides on the intriguing edge of cartoon and realism. I also find her to be one of the most interesting women in history -- she lived such a unconventional life and had an incredible impact on the entertainment world (and many kids!)~
For those of you unfamiliar with her work as an actress/jazz singer/burlesque dancer/spy/etc., she's one of the first few people (if I'm not mistaken) to sing the song "Blue Skies". She did a song called "Blackbird, Blackbird" as well.
11"x14" paper, graphite pencils, and somewhat a deviation from the elderly woman I drew last night. I'm happy with how fuzzy this turned out -- it's not the fault of my camera this time.
