Bad girls

I’ve always loved bad girls. Confident, unashamedly sexual, drinking, smoking girls with over the top glamorous looks that don’t care if others might describe them as gaudy or tawdry.

The classic bad girl wears leopard print, lurex, fishnets, tight trousers and sweaters, hoop earrings and high heeled mules, all of my favourites! They also wear a confident, superior look on their faces, perhaps a red lipstick sneer or a sharp raised eyebrow.

This is pretty much everything I aspire to and the majority of my role models and inspirations growing up were typical bad girls, often of the cartoon variety like Jessica Rabbit (just drawn that way), the girl in that movie Cool World (I don’t remember anything else about this movie but the girl made a big impact on me), some femme fatale in a noir inspired detective cartoon about fish (anyone remember this?) and the showgirl bird in Rock-A-Doodle.

Anyway, have a ton of bad girl pictures.

I have finally invested in a fancy new printer and can make prints again! Big ones as well, A3 size.

First one up is Conservatory. Available at my Etsy shop now.

If you’re interested in a specific print, don’t hesitate to let me know, I will keep all requests in mind when I decide what print to make next!

Instagram June

June was a weird month because of Rik Mayall’s death. It feels wrong using the word idol as a grown up, but despite having only properly discovered him fairly recently he was pretty much my biggest idol, not to mention major crush.

I posted tons of videos of my favourite Rik moments on Instagram, but you’ll have to look them up there. I’m still shook up about it and don’t feel like talking about it, but it would feel weird not to mention.

Anyway, without further ado, my photos from June.
