Words to live by. I’ve been nursing an urge for a while to draw a male figure in white tie evening dress for a while, and my recent art show gave me the perfect opportunity! I made his pantlegs wider than usual for a more 20’s look, as tapered dress pants a la the 30’s aren’t really my thing at the moment and I couldn’t get them to look right anyway. Besides being more suited for dancing, I much prefer the visual effect of the blocky wide leg. Anyone who’s familiar with the illustrations of John Held Jr. will know what I mean . . .
