The Little Coochi Snorcher That Could

 "The alcohol has gone to my head and I’m loose and ready.  There’s a picture over her bed of a naked Black woman with a huge Afro.  She gently and slowly lays me out on the bed and just our bodies rubbing makes me come." 

-The Little Coochi Snorcher That Could, Eve Ensler

Our productions of "The Vagina Monologues" are coming up here in two weeks. To enhance the experience, we're going to have projections of images behind our actors during some of the monologues. One of the monologues calls for a painting of a black woman with a giant afro. This monologue takes place in the 1970's. Here are some sketches, I'm still trying to figure out which one I like better. One is supposed to be slightly more realistic and the other is supposed to look more like a cartoon. Haven't decided yet. One will be 2x the size and sold at our performances. The money's going to Vera House and Women's Info.

It feels good to be drawing again. I've missed it a lot.

Realistic:



Non-realistic:


What you think? I think the non-realistic one needs more width to her afro. I think I'm digging the first one more.
