The Weekend ~ 5/4/12

Tomorrow is both Cinco de Mayo and the Kentucky Derby. I couldn’t decide which event to illustrate so I did a piece for both.

First up is Cinco de Mayo and I decided everyone needs a Piñata Purse. You just know it has to be full of goodies. If not money than definitely sweets. And what could be better than that? The Margarita doesn’t hurt either. This drawing was originally inspired by this photo of Dita Von Teese for Cointreau, then the purse idea, last her colorful companion sprung to life.


For the Derby I immediately thought of Eliza Doolittle’s day at the races. So for this one my trusty blade came out for a quick paper cutting session. It’s all about the hat!


No reading list this week. Just artwork. Hope to see you all again Monday.
