Like a record, baby

For this Weekend Art eXtravaganza on Sktchy, the theme is “vintage”. Vintage used to take me back to the 60s or 70s, but these days the 80s are vintage too. Damn, I’m getting old! So what to do, if you have to combine vintage + a picture of a fellow artist who is also on Sktchy? Luckily there is one member who is just as crazy about a certain 80s musician as I am, só crazy she dressed up as him once for a theme party! She dressed up as Pete Burns, charismatic frontman for Dead or Alive, who sadly died last year. It was quite impressing. I’m a HUGE Pete Burns fan and I totally fell for her personification of him. I tried to capture both their spirits in the portrait. The single is actually in my own personal record collection, I had to do a whole lot of tweaking to fit her in, but I’m quite happy with the result.
