50's designs

2

Helloooo! I am back with an other character that I designed for fun and training. May I present you Rosalie ( thanks to my friends who found her name ) !

I have been really inspired by an old lady that I crossed paths with in the street. Then, I mixed this very well looking old lady with Beth Ditto and her famous hair cut! Hope you’ll like her :)

What Kind of Punk are You?
  • Stonepunk: The use of time period-accurate materials to make contemporary contraptions ("Stonepunk doesn't exist" you might be saying "It's too far fetched!" Well, go to your dance search engine and look for "The Flintstones")
  • Sandlepunk: Old Greek/Roman style and ingenuity combined with post-modernism
  • Clockpunk: (Can be its own Punk) Renascence era, or 'The Age of Enlightenment' aesthetic with modern contraptions (I like to think of Ella Enchanted with the crank escalator and such)
  • Edopunk: Post-modernism combined with the Japanese Edo period. It could also be called that if something like steampunk were combined with traditional Japanese aesthetic
  • Steampunk: A healthy combination of Victorian ingenuity and aesthetic combined with some contemporary/futurism technology and concepts
  • Dieselpunk: (It can also be its own Punk) A combination of the oil age and contemporary/futurism
  • DecoPunk: (Can be a subset of Diesel) Focuses on the 20's-50's Art Deco design (I know one person who would love this)
  • Atompunk: 1940s-60s modernism, which includes the Atomic age and the Space Age (could also be considered Raygun Gothic)
  • Nowpunk: Contemporary Punkness... Not really too much to explain.
  • Cyberpunk: Extreme futurism normally associated with dystopia (The Matrix is a great example of Cyberpunk)
  • Biopunk: Focuses on the underground bio-technical revolution. This is different from Cyperpunk because it focuses on biology, not technology
  • Mythpunk: A combination of post-modernism and mythology and folklore.
  • Dreampunk: The use of any of the above Punk styles and combine it with Fairytales and storybooks (I have this kid an idea to write a story about a time-traveling Red Riding Hood and it was ecstatic about it)

Jayne Mansfield + The Pink Palace 

Jayne Mansfield was a big star from the 50’s that loved to be in the spotlight, she understood publicity and was a sweet celebrity that treated the public with kindness more than anyone else! Everything in her was attractive - her body, her face, her style, her personality, and of course… her house!  In November 1957, Jayne purchased a 40-room Mediterranean style mansion at 10100 Sunset Boulevard in Holmby Hills, Los Angeles. The home contained 7 bedrooms and 8 bathrooms along with a dining room, bar, library, and wine cellar. The estate also included a 3 bedroom staff suite and separate guest home. Jayne had the house painted pink, with cupids surrounded by pink fluorescent lights, pink furs in the bathrooms, a pink heart-shaped bathtub, and a fountain spurting pink champagne, and then dubbed it the “Pink Palace”. Her husband, Mickey Hargitay, a plumber and carpenter before getting into bodybuilding, built a pink heart-shaped swimming pool - The finishing touch at the bottom of the pool read “I love you Jaynie” in gold leaf mosaic. Jayne decorated the Pink Palace by writing to over 1,500 furniture and building suppliers and asking for free samples. She told the donors that they could then brag that their goods were in her extravagant mansion. The pitch worked - Jayne received over $150,000 ($1,259,538 in 2015 dollars) in free merchandise! In 1960, LIFE magazine photographed the mansion and published pictures of the rooms - Jayne was very cooperative with the press and let them to enjoy some drinks at her Pink Palace’s bar to take some pictures of her

catcomixzstudios  asked:

Do you remember how you first came up with the idea for Rock and Riot? Is there anything you can share about how it has changed since its inception?

It first came about because I was doodling cute 50′s girlfriends! I had originally planned for Connie to be a teen that delivers newspapers and rides around on a bike and had a crush on the cute blonde girl a couple neighborhoods over. They would eventually meet Gene and Clyde who were already boyfriends and the story would end with the 4 of them going on a big gay road trip  


I changed it when I was designing 50′s girl gangs for a personal class project and I decided to mesh the two ideas together!
