Eva G. commented that this mannequin series might want to become a children's book. I like the idea very much of taking her further. Definitely a series of prints, maybe an artist's book, maybe a children's book-- anyone else have ideas?

The mannequin wears a sign around her neck on a piece of red yarn; it says "Fragile! Nice complete vintage mannequin. Pants fit nicely. Hard to find teenager. $145" She also wears a perky straw and plastic fruit Easter Sunday church hat from the fifties complete with a net (were these nets called whimseys?) that creeps down over her forehead. Her eyes are a little strange and her teeth are extra white next to her painted lips. Best of all her limbs have been detached and tossed in the tub with her! What fun she seems to be having without any arms and with her legs playfully sticking out!
(The drawing I did with a black waterproof Pilot V-Ball pen on willow and abaca paper. I added watercolor when I got home.)
