Pinky Sweetness


I love the old greeting cards designs of the 50's and 60's.
Here's one that I did for a greeting card company.
Have a great day.

Wonderful. I wish they would sell cards from that company in Germany.
Your art truely should be spread worlwide.
I hope you are not angry with me.
I know I did not do you justice with the "jersey girl", but it was ment as a compliment.
Hugs

I love seeing all these little characters that you bring to life, full of attitude!
The pink in this is one of my favorites--I seldom get to use pink in my quirky work and am drawn to it quickly!
Bravo Vanessa! Ya rock.... ;-D

Janine said...

Dear Vanessa,
thanks for your comment, but I am a little bit surprised to find it under my "Three muses"- entry. The digital collage is not the jersey girl.
But the women of the world, America/ New Yersey / Vanessa.(that´s the post before)
Did you see that too?
I hope you recover soon.
It is very upsetting to have the flu.
I feel a little ill myselfe.
Where the hag is spring ;0)
Have a great day
Janine

Hi Vanessa just catching up on your recent blog entries. I was really taken with your last one where you touch on your childhood and talk about why you create such uplifting artwork! I found it so interesting to read a little about your background and what inspired you to create the art that you do. I love your work because I feel like you really show your heart and soul and that's why it's so inviting, such positive energy radiates from your work I think that's such an amazing talent to have. Thank you for sharing with us!!! Love latest pieces you posted so cute and lively!!! :0) Hope you're having a great week xoxox

Vanessa it's a supreb work, just the right colour tones and composition to give that joyful feeling

It's no surprise that's your inspiration. Your work has always reminded me of the old Disney cartoon of the sock hop...do you remember that one?
