That Wicked City Woman



Treat or Treat meant something totally different for the
deranged Anna Bella Maria Mary Josephine Constance Karen Maryweather.
That name had caused her much distress as a young girl.
The constant teasing would drive her to a life of crime.
She has since changed her name to, "That Wicked City Woman"
I'm sure some of you know her. She comes over to borrow your car
and brings it back on E or not at all! Ask to use your expensive jewelry and never
returns it! Steals your parking space at the mall. Gets in the 12 items
or less line with of course 30 items. If you see this woman, there is
a world wide warrant out for her arrest! GEEEEEEEETTTTTTT HERRRRR!
He he he!

With a long name like that, I would be kind of bad myself. As always, I love your illustrations.

Such a wicked illustration if I may say so myself. Love the orange background and the black cat and the wicked woman herself.

Roberta Baird said...

Hey..... I think I was behind ABMMJCKM Maryweather in the grocery store today!

I've passed an award on to you. It's in my sidebar, whenever you get a chance to drop by and pick it up!

Ces said...

fanstastic illustration once again my dearest sisterfriend but may I please ask, is she:

1) a wicked-city woman?
2) a wicked city-woman?
3) a wicked city woman
4) wicked?
5) a city?
6) a woman?
7) all of the above?

Is it cold up there?

Tomás Serrano said...

Great great background.

Amberbop said...

Haha! I can't blame her. If I borrowed diamonds that sparkly I'd probably never return them either! This is so FAB!!! You are just plain amazing, that's all there is to it.

She's so pretty!

Art Fan Ako said...

I love your style! She's so slick... I want boots like that! Excellent!

Elise said...

Tomás Serrano said...

You´re very welcome. It´s a pity the mail service was so quick. I was thinking of the oct 2 as arriving day...

Bella Sinclair said...

Dang, girl! You gave my secret identity away, and now I'm gonna have to change my name AGAIN. Sheeesh.

Wicked is too cooooolio! Strut your stuff! Even if the cops did nab her, they would release her on her own fashion sense. She's stylin', baby! She'd charm the pants off of any man in blue. (ooh, that sounds dirty)

bibouse said...

Bravo !
I love your illustrations, you've got a very original style.

Amy C said...

oh but she looks so sweet and foxy. Gorgeous piece Vanessa

Shirley said...

What a smashin' illustration, Vanessa! This kicks off Fall for me. I just LOVE those glittery details and her amazing shoes. You always capture strong, STRONG women...which is awesome. Is there a little YOU in this piece? : )

DEB said...

Vanessa, you are hands down my favorite illustrator! You've taught me how hard it is to create these gems that tell stories, entertain with a fluid ease, and stand alone as fine art. I really appreciate your kind, generous and enthusiastic comments on my blog too!

cally jane studio said...

Hi Vanessa, thank you for your lovely comment. Your blog is really great, I especially love this illustration, very stylish!

Lisa M Griffin said...

Cheryl Lynn said...

The Wicked City Woman has on a BAAAAD dress and I want those boots!

She is gorgeolicious!

Have a great weekend, my dear.

Cheryl Lynn said...

BELLA, BELLA! Is that really you? Giiiirrrrl, I knew you was cool, I just didn't know how cool!

You's the bomb diggity! HA!

Ann Marie said...

You have such a fun illustration style! I like that pretty necklace in her hand. It works so well with the background--which is great and contrasts well with the figures. Wonderful piece!!

Michelle Henninger said...

Hey, I think I loaned her a book and she never gave it back! Dastardly woman! Someone needs to stop her!! Enough is enough! Next thing you know, she'll be stealing the stuffy out of the arms of a sleeping baby. Devil woman.

Love it V! :)

Janine said...
