There is very little I can add to Pam's extraordinary account <----to be found on her blog -- except to say--I had a hell of a lot of fun doing it. I've been drawing with marker on T-shirt material (on and off) since I was 10 years old.
(One of these days I shall give a full account of why that is. It's a darn good tale in and of itself.)
I haven't done it in years and when Kid Nexus approached me with this request--I was glad to do it. And Pam was correct...I didn't approach it as a sketch but wanted to make the entire composition flow together as best I could. I didn't allow myself the ability to "think" too much--I just wanted to "feel" my way around the fabric and the curves of the dress itself.
My thanks to Pam for being so clever and asking and being so generous to the Fund.
Suzy Thomas, my assistant at work just said that Pam's arguments regarding female comic book apparel really make sense--there needs to be other "stuff" available other than just oversize T-shirts for the female half of the population. Particularly now that the ratio of males to females at conventions is changing yearly and trending more towards the general population.
