A sketch of this dress from Loft.
I have been using my Moleskine quite a bit lately to just get bits of this and that down in watercolor.
I have been working on an illustration of a groovy bikini that belonged to my mother, but it’s not quite ready to show yet. So, instead I thought I would share with you a picture of my Grandmother in her 1940s swimsuit. I love this picture!
My grandmother is the lady to the right in the picture. My grandparents were living in California at this time and there are just tons of pics of them with friends on the beach.
But seriously, aren’t these suits just great!
I have been creating illustrations like this all week and thought…wouldn’t it be fun to illustrate myself? And yes, it was!
Some sandals I purchased a few weeks ago. I think it’s finally getting warm enough to hope I’ll be wearing them soon. 🙂
