The good girl and the wild one

February 16th, 2010

How it all starts: pencil lines in red, ink in black, then scan and clean up any funky lines or mistakes.

I totally got inspired by these pictures of Marlon Brando and Mary Murphy from The Wild One, because let’s face it, that is how a young man should look. Swoon. Don’t even talk to me about Streetcar, I die!

    I do love that girl’s haircut though! Wish mine could wave like that.

    Aw, this is so lovely! I immediately thought of Grease when I first saw it. So adorable, and nostalgic.

    Agreeing with everyone. Super lovely. I love Marlon Brando, but it is sad how his life turned out.
