2/52: Checkerboard Barbie


I was afraid I wasn't going to meet this week's deadline, but I've nabbed two hours to myself make this week's image. I've always wanted to paint my face like Barbie's, after she leaves Ken, in a game of you in the Sandman series. So here I am, in my favourite blonde wig. (This is nearly SOOC*, another achievement I'm rather proud of. Only minor blemish corrections were made in Photoshop. I'm getting better at exposure.)

I love how this picture makes me feel. Like you're about to say something scathing.

Scathing but also really funny, I think.

Yes! of course funny! I guess the two are inextricably linked in my mind.

It probably would have looked better as a square composition, but I didn't use a tripod so I was stuck at arm's length with my 50 mm. Need to get an f2/35!

My favorite Sandman arc. I still have the original trade I bought some... seventeen years ago?

It's still fantastic - the one I've re-read the most, probably.

My copy is one of the old hardbacks - from before the time when DC decided to use half the cover for names rather than the artwork.
