It’s Josephine Baker’s birthday! I don’t have time to do a drawing of her since I’m working on commissions, so here’s a little doodle from a while back.
“I’m not intimidated by anyone. Everyone is made with two arms, two legs, a stomach and a head.”
I did some posts about one of my most beloved ladies over on my war blog, Josephine Baker, and ended up drawing her. She’s a bit of a patron saint in our household - along with Ludwig II, Wilde and Yusupov.
My art is on the menu of Chez Josephine once again! I need smelling salts.
Unfortunately, this crappy scan is the only one I have of that drawing. Fortunately, this drawing is the reason I got to befriend Josephine’s son, the incredible and fabulous Monsieur Jean-Claude Baker. It hangs in his house now.
