Lydia, Oh Lydia by shoomlah Lydia, Oh Lydia by shoomlah
Lydia, oh Lydia, that encyclo-pidia.
Oh Lydia The Champ of them all.
She once swept an Admiral clear off his feet.
The ships on her hips made his heart skip a beat.
And now the old boy's in command of the fleet,
for he went and married Lydia!


I was listening to Michael Feinstein and, well, my childhood came rushing back and smacked me in the sketchbook.

okay, I see the ships on her hips
and I see that on her back is the battle of waterloo
and beside it the wreck of the Hesperis, too?
I don't see proudly above it the Red White and Blue.
But I did learn a lot from Lydia.
La la la.
La la la.

(and nice hips!)[link]

I had to stop and comment on this one! Besides the fact that it is a beautiful piece... which it is! I saw the title Lydia and thought, "that couldn't possibly be what I think it is," and it was... I know this song! My buddy and I have sung it at a couple of cabarets! Hysterically funny when it was originally done by Groucho Marx. And I just love the fact that you illustrated it!

I heard another excerpt from that song in "The Fisher King", a movie staring Robin Williams and some other guy. I like your interpretation of her tattoos. Very stylish.

Wait a sec...I thought we were supposed to be drawing women all skinny and spindly nowadays; like a twelve-year-old boy with a boob job. This thing you've drawn looks like...well, frankly it looks like a woman. What's up with that? ;)

I love the Hirschfeldian lines. I'm a big Marx bros. fan, and I remember Groucho singing that song. So I had to check this out. Now I gotta fave it.

I'm Dazzled! The wide hips got me hooked from the start on this piece of work... It's so pretty! I love how the whole body is a curve, it also has a lot of attitude.

Instant Favourite!
