14x17 graphite drawing of Marilyn Monroe. I was searching for inspiration by looking for women reading, and was happily surprised by how many were of Marilyn! I may just do an entire series of her reading, or of people reading in general. My favorite part, and the most challenging, was the books on the shelf behind her. I felt like I was in a library as I worked on it, and kept wanting to whisper!
I am going to use a local business to make prints of this, I think it would also make a very cute and fitting bookmark!
What should I draw next?
