Artist's description:

Charcoal on paper.

Before Gentlemen Prefer Blondes became the famous movie, and one of the films that established Marilyn Monroe to her superstar status for being a dizzy blonde, it was a novel written by Anita Loos published in 1925, who also co-wrote the screenplay for the film.

Had it not been for Anita Loos we would never have seen Marilyn in That Pink Dress singing Diamonds Are A Girl's Best Friend.

My charcoal is a portrait of Miss Loos, to give her a nod for her witty writing that has given us iconic images of Marilyn.

I worked from archive photographs, including one from Vanity Fair and made my own preliminary sketches freehand.

Materials used:

paper, charcoal, fixative spray
