i dun an art too



i love uni

girl on girl

I met up with some people at the pub the other day. they were already a little lubricated, and, to my knowlege had just been out painting.
Anyway. i got there and was sat down and asked a very serious question. one that im not too sure i can answer.. so ive decided to put it out into the public forum...
undoubtedly, some of you may have wondered about this before, as i have. Mainly, though, because I am a facilitator of this mystery....

i was asked "claire... why do chick painters always draw girls?"
which is totally something i have wondered about. As i pretty much only draw girls.
I cannot answer it...

I was thinking of some artists that i know of that are chicks. who pretty much specialise in chicks...
Audrey Kawasaki...

her shit is off tap!
Her ladies are fucking beautiful and mysterious and soft and lovely.

We have Melbournes own DEB

once more with some pretty ladies.
we have France's Fafi
Mishap from melbourne also!

a terrible photo of one of my ladies...

Texas Betty...

there ya go..

just a small sample of the lovely ladies drawing lovely ladies.
And it is a beautiful thing!
each one had their own unique style- which is super important. but as to WHY chicks draw chicks.... I dont have a fucking clue.
