Gallery 1988 Show: Skee-ball Girl

There isn't much to this piece, just a simple pin-up for the sake of doing a fun drawing. I thought the repetition of a bank of skee-ball machines would make for cool imagery, (plus a skee-ball pin up was something I had never seen before,) and then from there I just had fun with it by adding things like the sash made of tickets. It actually took quite a bit of playing around with color and things to figure out how I wanted all the details to look, and probably the biggest challenge was making sure the girls didn't get lost in the background.

I thought this piece might get lost among the other more complicated drawings at my show, but I was really happy that a few people let me know how much they liked it.

My show is up through June 22, so if you are in the LA area please stop by Gallery 1988 East! You can purchase prints of all the pieces at the Gallery's online store.
