I finished inking the girl on a swing. I've given her a quill so that she can illuminate text. I'm thinking of using her as a header for some of my infrequent letters, her pen will start whatever I am thinking of writing. ("Dear Advertisers, I am disgusted with the way old people are depicted on television. We are not all vibrant, fun-loving sex maniacs. Many of us are bitter, resentful individuals who remember the good old days when entertainment was bland and inoffensive. The following is a list of words I never want to hear on television again. Number one: Bra. Number two: Horny. Number three: Family Jewels.")
If you are curious, my drawing is intended to emulate the style of Art Nouveau. In the industrial era leading to World War One, new techniques in publishing allowed a greater population access to art. Mass advertising in particular became cheaper and more prevalent. The art world responded to an increasingly mechanized society with intricate and detailed designs that chose to exhibit Nature as the primal force over Man. Geometric designs contain natural forms, but not completely. Nature is tamed using carefully-placed lines, but remains unruly and unpredictable. Man can hope to rein in the macrocosm, but only for the short-term. Predictive of the awful cataclysm of the Great War, Art Nouveau seemed to be the last pure form of global culture before the world descended into fanatical patriotism.
All that, and the Art Nouveau artist also gets to draw lots of pretty girls with really long legs. Priorities remain important!
