What's old is new?

I did a double take at the grocery store when I saw the People's cover memorializing Elizabeth Taylor. Looks like People's art directors and I have the same taste in beautiful photos!

I got around to rummaging through some old drawings and pulled out the one above. I did this years ago, at least 10, with a limited palette of coloured pencils on super slick Lettraset paper (if some of you remember that!) A softer rendition, using lots of cross-hatching throughout the face, then directional strokes through the hair. I still like it :-)

A stunning woman and a film icon; a heartbreaking loss~Godspeed, Liz.
