Hey Mama

Drawing I did of my mum(Neo Lerato Gariba) and I. She keeps guilting me about never finishing any paintings for her lol I always end up hating them half-way through! Anyway this is inspired by old pictures of her and I .Tried to make it look like a dream. I'm slowly trying to get used to using photoshop mostly using pictures along with drawings(the fabrics used on the dress and the blanket are SouthAfrican and Ghanaian :D) .Hopefully I'll start drawing more layouts and actually painting in photoshop. Hope u like it ma! Enjoy.Critiques welcome.

La Belle et le Bad-Boy

In an attempt to not forget my French I've started to listen to french rap again...Cuz I don't read enuf English books I doubt I'd pick up a French one. " La Belle et le Bad-Boy" is an awesome song by Mc Solaar(http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dwEH6LYr4-U) .Made me wanna paint a sad looking hottie wiping tears out of her eyes...I also wanted draw in another style. Critiques are always welcome .Enjoy.

La Revue Negre

Soon after moving to France,Josephine Baker joined a group of Jazz musicians and dancers known as "La Revue Negre".They were famous for doing the opposite of the most popular type of dance at the time which was Ballet. They "broke" the form and broke-it down from the sounds of it lol. The painting was a bit bigger than the scanner which is why they don't have feet, I'll fix it when I get a hold of a better scanner. Critiques are welcome.Enjoy.
