call girl, pencil on paper, digital
i’ve become really tired of the way i illustrate in my personal work.  this is an attempt at something different.  this is also a mixture of apparel and technology spanning from the 1920s-1960s.  
i started drawing this after a visit to the computer history museum.  what i found most interesting was the marketing around technology in its infancy.  it seemed that, in order to make the computer more approachable, advertisers either made it look like furniture or put a “dumb” woman next to it.  ”so great, even she can understand!  GEE!”  it was both hilarious and embarrassing.  i’m not sure how the idea of drawing “dumb technology pin-up girls” fits in with this, but i think the sentiment is somewhere in there.
