"Natalie" Commission illustration

©Leigh 2009

A recent commission I just completed for a client in Singapore.

I hope you all had a great weekend!! I will admit a bit jealous of those of you enjoying Fashion week in NYC, but loving all the amazing updates through all of your tweets. Next year I am there!
I am also ready for a new season of Gossip Girl tonight! (Simple things excite me).
Which takes me to what do you all think of Taylor Momsen's band and that outfit during Fashion's Night Out at the Giuseppe Zanotti Boutique.. She looks amazing, and knowing she is performing, but wow! ( I am just trying to remember when I was 16) I definitely never looked like that.. I was so scrawny still..

Emjie said...

That is a lovely composition. The eyes and hair are wonderful. Well done. If I may ask, what is your medium?

As for Taylor... I am lost for words. I am so tired of teen girls being sexed up. There's a saying, 'just because it can be done, doesn't mean it should be done.

Gorgeous though I'm not a massive fan of Taylor. Esp. now.

The Townhouselady said...

Your illustration is spectacular.

Taylor's outfit would be fine if she were over 18. I know she's trying to be provocative but at 16 her parents need to draw a line. I'm no prude but this is really disgraceful.

Leigh said...

grreat piece and taylor looks whoretastically great!

Kellie Collis said...

Ah gorgeous art!! Always so fabulous!

The Haute-Shopper said...

Wow, that drawing is stunning! The illustration looks so life like to me.

And I have yet to see the new GG (I recorded it, so I've set some time aside this evening to enjoy it), but I've always admired Taylor for having a different style compared to the others. Her voice isn't bad and the song is pretty catchy. I was definitely not like that at 16 either, but I guess you do grow up faster in the limelight! (not to mention if you get a wardrobe allowance ;-)
