“In America, sex is an obsession, in other parts of the world it’s a fact.” – Marlene Dietrich
The latest entry in my ‘LickedinPop’ series is the wonderful Hollywood legend, Marlene Dietrich. Known for her sultry, sex appeal, she was a major leading lady in the 1930s and 1940s. She explored notions of feminism with her femme fatale roles in films, such as in the film Morocco. Continuing to play the femme fatale, Dietrich challenged accepted notions of femininity. She often wore pants and more masculine fashions on- and off-screen, which added to her unique allure and created new trends.
All work in the LickedinPop Series begins as an original pen and Ink illustration. Rich and colorful, it is my homage to the work of Roy Lichtenstein tuned to my favorites in pop culture.
