Illustration Friday - Spotted

Oh no! she just realised she had been SPOTTED! This is a take on the media's crazy obsession with Hollywood and celebrities today!

Who cares what they look like without make up or what they are shoving into their mouth or how much weight they've gained or lost - but hey the magazines still sell so I guess someone does!?!

Ive also drawn a spotted dress - about 6mnths ago I was in an Ebay bidding war for a 1940's navy blue polka dot tea dress - OK I was having a Gwen Stefani in her 'Dont Speak' filmclip moment and I really really needed to win that dress - it was just too perfect! Sadly a few other people thought so too and it ended up going for US$80.00 - thats just crazy!!! Im not sad as I know I'll find another one on Ebay someday but this is how I would have worn it - cinched in with a belt and with my groovy black leather boots! Nice!!


  1. I like your take on spotted and the accompanying story.

  2. i like her glasses - which seem to call attention to her desire for anonimity

  3. ADORABLE!!! LOVE the dress, scene and sentiment!! SUPSRE JOB!

  4. I love the outfit, Anastasia! I want that dress too (and the puppy)! Great job on the scene!

  5. Amen on the obsession with Hollywood. :-)

    Hello Anastasia
    This is a particularly amusing illustration: you've got the facial
    expressions exactly right.

    I like the other work you've put in your blog too.


  7. I like the imagination that you have put into this illustration, Anastasia. You could even try to write a little short story to go with your illustration.

    I sympathise with you about those eBay moments. I am an addict.

    Scratches & Scribbles

  8. I like your 'spotted' thinking. And I like the dress.

  9. Very nice indeed.
    Is it just me or does the photo guy look a little like a burglur?

  10. cool! i enjoyed reading your post!

  11. a burglar?? Yes I guess he does hehee
    he is stealing the privacy of others haha!

  12. Wonderful illustration! Love the dog. Ugh so true about eBay! Hopefully another one will come around very soon. [ =

  13. Neat spin on spotted. Luv Gwen tunes & have had crazy moments on eBay myself.

    BTW.. come over to my place.. Drivi-in & Gwen tunes.

  14. I think I know exactly the dress you mean! I've been looking for one ever since 1996 (the year "Don't Speak" came out)... and I finally found it! At a vintage clothing stall in Freemantle on Friday afternoon, just hanging there waiting to be bought... and it fit perfectly. I just wrote about it on my blog.


Thanks for stopping by and taking time to comment!! i really appreciate it!
