All I can tell you is that this was a quick one from a publicity still of a cross-dressing Katherine Hepburn in Sylvia Scarlett. I suppose it struck me due to a sort of resemblance to David Bowie in his Thin White Duke phase. In any event, it's a little rough, I should've spent more time with it...
On the flip side, to balance all that masculine-femininity, here's some feminine-femininity in the form of Ella Fitzgerald. Another quickie from a photo I found amongst the Library of Congress archives.

Something a little different for today. After a failed attempt at getting a piece that centered around masquerades ready in time for a themed show, I then turned may attention to possibly doing something concerning Poe's Masque of the Red Death. While that project may still materialize, it never quite came together like I wanted. Anyhow, this was one of the tests that I painted up real quick. Originally it was supposed to be inked as well, but I decided to leave it colorful...and generally line-less.

Just another result of being in "one of those moods". I'm proud to present my swift rendering of soul legend Isaac Hayes as Truck Turner. I'm led to understand they're going to remake this film...or, I should say, make another film with this title and a character of the same name. Likely, it'll once again prove that the "creative" powers that be have never and will never understand what made b-movies like Truck Turner great in the first place. Alas...
After all, Isaac Hayes wrote Sam & Dave's megahit "Soul Man", won the Oscar and a Grammy for "Theme from Shaft", and was just...well, Isaac Hayes....who could replace him?
