Illustration Friday-- Deja vu

Every time she wore her favorite hat, Louise inexplicably felt like she was experiencing her senior prom all over again...

  1. Great character! Makes me think Louise likes to sit in a sun-warmed kitchen full of Crate and Barrel, green tea (with honey, of course), thinking of yesteryear. Excellent illustration!

  6. Hey Krista! I like the combination Granny/hippie look! Great character. Did Louise ever get married?... or did the bees keep away prospective suitors?It took Bobby Goldsboro six years, but in 1968 he recorded his tribute to Louise and her hat......”Honey” (I miss you) :o) I was going to repost my last week’s Illustration Friday “resolutions" and rename it Deja Vu and give everyone a deja vu experience... but that would have been to easy :o)

  10. Hahahahaha! Groovy, sistah! I love her hat. And strange as it may sound, I also love her elbows. Whenever I see a beehive, I think B-52s!
