it’s only a paper moon

8788aecbbb468f1e4be9815661b92e60I’ve always loved old fashioned “paper moon” photographs, and have wanted to do a series of drawings of my characters in this setting for a while. Maybe I’ll get around to starting them this week.  Here are a few of the images I’ve been collecting as references. 41da4ff7d407707aef124c56bd70ab67The tattooed gent and the girls with bows are both genuine vintage, while the lady below with the striped stockings is a modern pastiche, taken at the Helsinki Burlesque Festival in 2012. (And don’t  you wish you’d been there?)


The collection’s in my Pinterest on my board called “the classic moon”.

    Super cool! I always love things that remind us that our great (times however many) grandparents were fun-loving humans, too.
