THEY COULD SMOKE BACK THEN.

Only Survivor.


Wow, I'm still alive! Sort of! Skipping to the end of a rather lengthy and uninteresting run-down of the school year so far, enjoy this ink rendering of a sad air hostess from the 60s.

It's a piece for my Character Development class, which sounds like it should be geared towards children with self-confidence issues but it is actually a character design course taught by Brian Ralph. The only prompt we were given was "The Only Survivor" and since I've been wanting to draw vintage flight attendant uniforms since I saw this collection, it seemed like a prime opportunity. I should also note that I borrowed heavily from the technique I used for my Hellboy piece and I'm slowly getting more confident in working this way. Now if only I could do the same thing with gouache...

  1. That's one kick-ass illustration, Annie. The whole story unfolds from it in both directions. And that cigarette is a god-kiss (hopefully not her last one).
