The Art of The Romance Comic
I have a large collection of romance comics. I love these titles. They were full of cautionary tales and advice for young ladies about the opposite sex. I did a few paintings inspired by these comics and this is one of them.
The woman here looks kind of crazed, and stunned at the same time. But she's keen I think! Good to go! The fella, well, he has an extremely long index finger but he's cool as a cucumber. I loved these paintings but they didn't go over very well. It's hard to fit the sarcastic and the smug into a booth full of happy cats and fish you know? I'd need a booth dedicated to this type of painting I think. It just sticks out like a sore thumb otherwise.
