I signed up for a swap in the group that I belong to, An Affair with Art. For a June swap theme we had to pick a female cartoon character to create a post card. Since I had an old (2004) Betty Boop desk calendar I picked Betty Boop to use on my post card. I guess it pays to hang onto things, because you just never know when you may find a use for the item.
I bought a unused Betty Boop calendar several years back at a yard sale for 50 cents, and the calendar has been sitting in a draw ever since. The pages in the calendar have many Betty Boop pictures that look like pages from a coloring book. I colored the image I selected with colored pencils, cut out Betty, and added her to a water color beach scene that I painted.
Did you know that Betty Boop started from a cartoon French Poodle and was then changed into a flirtatious flapper? http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Betty_Boop
I received a post card from Jeri, and she used Little Lulu on her post card. Do you remember the comic book Little Lulu or am I dating myself here? :-)
The past two days have been in the 90's. Triple H...hot, humid and hazy. Thank goodness for air conditioning.
