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!
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:
WordPressers, please re-blog this post and let me know which one you fancy. OR:
Click on the photo of the pin-up lady you like to most to go to the blog post about her. Then re-blog that post or share on Tumblr, Facebook or Twitter using the “share” buttons. Please leave the Twitter handle @miss_beretta in your tweet or I won’t know your preference. THANK YOU FOR PARTICIPATING!
Phew… It’s been a busy few weeks working on commissions. Squeezed in this little brunette as England failed miserably in Brazil. Ah well, being a born and bred Dutch girl, I’m supporting the Netherlands of course. Anyways, it’s my own competition next week! I’ll be raffling off one of these pin-up portraits. But first, next up is… a multi-colour hair girl!
