A Bit Mod

11"x 14"

So, I was going for a 1960's Mod Squad kind of feel here, but my major inspiration for this one was that 60's dress Kate Winslet wears in Eternal Sunshine for the Spotless Mind (one of my favorites!) You know the scene I am talking about?

Joel is trying to hide Clementine in his childhood memories, and they go back to the 60's to try to escape from the mind erasers. (If you haven't seen the movie, I just lost you. Go watch it, then come back. We'll wait...) Clementine has the most amazing dress in that scene, not to mention her bright red hair.

I guess my paper doll girl also looks a bit like Joan from Mad Men. So many sources of inspiration.
