me: roger rabbit

When I was doing reseach on the Ink & Paint Club picture I did, I found lots of this style of 1940’s art as well. I seem to be on a vintage and retro art kick as of late so I wanted to give it a try too. What started off as one image turned in to the main cast of Who Framed Roger Rabbit. Still one of my favorite films.

Once again, designs like this can be found over at my Red Bubble shop and Society6 too.

Can we just take a moment to appreciate Jessica Rabbit here. She is sexy, beautiful, tall, curvy, red haired, smart, mature, classy…basically every guys’ dream woman. She has guys throwing themselves at her, going crazy over her and fighting just to get a glimpse of her. She could literally have any guy she wanted. And yet, she falls in love and marries someone who isn’t conventionally handsome, but who has a great personality which appeals to hers and is fun to be around. All her life she’s probably been told how physically attractive she is and been used for her beauty, so it must be so wonderful for her to meet someone who wants to make her laugh and be genuinely happy rather than have her as a trophy wife. Roger appeals to her humour and appreciates her mentality and personality and is the first guy to treat her like a normal girl and a human being. Of course she’s going to be defensive when guys don’t understand what she sees in Roger. He was the first and only guy to respect her personality and wanted to know her as a person so he could make her genuinely happy. She didn’t settle for any less than she deserved.
