Bee and the legs
This was inspired by the famous vintage Vogue cover by Horst p Horst “having a ball” in May 1941!! (Can you imagine, my grandma was not even married yet!!!!)
I had just gone to the museum to see his work and afterwards told myself, I gotta have a vintage drawing with legs up on a wall! I added the fishnet tights and a bee however, cause I wanted mine to have a softly implied sex vibe! I don’t know why but in my head, bees are really sexual (you can laugh)!

Vogue Cover
This one was inspired by another vintage Vogue cover of June 1962, called summer pleasures. It was more like a copy paste since I changed few things to the original.

Braided beauty

This one was inspired by the time I had this long braids that I super enjoyed having, but then realized that I had never drawn a woman with braids. I had to do it!!
