The UK burlesque scene

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 MaloneScarlett Daggers, Anna Fur Laxis, Lady Wildflower and Cece Sinclair. I’m sure there’s many more drawings to come.

Meanwhile on Insta…

It’s been a while.

Insta just kinda took over. Give me a follow if you like sketches in ink, cheeky pinup girls and the occasional snapshot of goats.

I’m now back in action again on here. There is just so much to show you, watch this space.

So this is what’s been happening on Instagram recently:

Pants Party

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.

beyonce drawing 7/11 videoI 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.

And here is the video:

Happy birthday, Andy!

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.

FKA Twigs mini painting

Dear FKA Twigs,

I have listened to your song Two Weeks 52 times today, so I thought a little artistic tribute was in order.
