There are just so many good burlesque performers hailing from the UK. Missy Malone, Anna Fur Laxis and Miss Miranda to name a few, travel the whole world to perform their tassel twirling, shimmy shaking magic. Here’s my ode to all my UK girlies, thank you for the inspiration! From top to bottom: Missy Malone, Scarlett Daggers, Anna Fur Laxis, Lady Wildflower and Cece Sinclair. I’m sure there’s many more drawings to come.
It’s been all Christmassy over at Prudy’s this December. And I totally forgot to tell you! Too many presents and recipes to think about! Head over to the butter, basil and breadcrumbs cookery blog to see the new Christmas header in action.
And this is Sophie, Prudy’s gorgeous Labrador. Merry Christmas to all!
I was pleasantly surprised by Beyonce’s new video which doesn’t take itself a bit too serious. Set in a hotel suite Bey prances around in a sweater and underpants and nothing seems to be rehearsed. So here a happy, airy watercolour to go with the happy, airy video.
I used to do silly lounge wear dances in my parent’s front room when I was in my late teens. Unfortunately my pushy parents didn’t launch me into stardom but ordered me to stop jumping in front of the television.
A big, happy birthday to my friend, Andy Hickinbottom – the best pin-up 3D modeler known to humanity. This gouche and ink picture of his signature character Trixie was the least I could do in return for the beautiful portrait he did of me not long ago.
It was a real pleasure working with Chef Julianna of foodieonboard.com – she pretty much did all the designing and I just drew the pictures ;) Head over to her cooking blog for some yummy, healthy meal ideas!
After a big Arty Room clear-out this weekend, I decided that enough is enough and an Etsy shop was born. Please have a browse… welcome to Miss Beretta’s Illustration Pin-up Emporium😉 All my cards are lovingly hand painted in watercolours – no prints, but the real deal: the original. Send one of these ladies to someone who’s really special to you… or stick her on your own wall, mounted and framed.
To celebrate, I’ll be giving one postcard away by randomly picking one of your names this Tuesday at 7pm GMT. To enter:
