Audrey Redcoat

More fun with watercolors. This is the sister act to "Black Eyed Susan." It quickly turned into a sampler of watercolor technique, I think the only thing I didn't do was throw salt on it! My favorite part is the variegation in the stockings... I think my next watercolor will be less controlled.

I've been watching Twin Peaks like a madman lately, and it couldn't have come at a better time because the women in that show are perfect models for these lusty ladies of vice. While I conceived of this project a week or so before I began watching the show, I can't help but notice the similarities between to two: a throwback to retro-Americana & mystery. And lots and lots of cigarettes. This one was going to have wilder hair, but I reined it back in as a tribute to Audrey Horne of Horne's department stores.

Guess what? I got into the "Big Book of Illustration Ideas 2." Go out and buy it, then turn to page 124, then find my e-mail address ( and commission some work! This promo I did of KT Tunstall is the selection piece.

To all the mamas in the house...

Happy Mother's Day! This image was created for my mother, because she likes dogs an awful lot.
