Breakfast in Italy

About the work
The track is “Pinup” style 50s waitress, but with a more current style.
From this my study began to find a nice solution, but at the same time fun and dynamic.
The inspiration came from the album cover of Supertramp “ Breakfast in America ” from 1979 in which a chubby waitress posing as Lady Liberty serves an orange juice with a “bar” style background of the Big Apple.
Perfect! But I needed a little variation to make it more fun ….
With the help of the beautiful Federica KillerQueen , I take a series of photos and select one of them.
At this point I make some changes to the face and neckline of the shirt and start working on a sheet of Schoeller 50×70 cm paper.
In the photo gallery some steps of creation.
And further down, look where you can see her “around” 😉
