‘Lions, Tigers, Versace… Oh My!’ I would like to welcome you to my latest Crying Girl; Drowning Girl Oz. This lilac haired vixen, is a much belated birthday and Christmas present for my wonderful friend, Jamie. He adores all things Dorothy! So what better way to celebrate this with a bespoke and original illustrative gift.
The illustration is part of an ever growing series inspired by the Pop Art Legend; Roy Lichtenstein. So many girls, forever drowning in their own tears and brightly coloured woes. This particular Dorothy, has been given a fashion spin. Houndstooth and Versace break up the yellow brick road themed drawing. The picture itself stands approx 30 x 36 inches. I wanted to incorporate red glitter, to emphasize her red shoes, one of the most iconic references to the film, and very fashion orientated. Unfortunately I decided against the glitterati, due to the continual sprinkling of falling glitter and Jamie’s feline housemates. Glittery kitty tongues… not cool. Enjoy Drowning Girl Oz. Happy Thursday! S x
