Cartoonish Nakey Folk

Well, by golly, I missed it yesterday! I was planning to post, but things didn't quite work out, however, I do have a little something today. It is what you might call a cartoon nakey sketch dump, for lack of a better name. I used to use a traditional sketchbook, but in the last couple of months I've started drawing in a newsprint pad, which I find works remarkably well. However, the pads really don't hold up well to repeated opening and closing, so the pages come loose pretty easily. I usually use an ocher or light blue colored pencil or art stick and then go over the lines I like with a black colored pencil. All of these sketches are from my imagination, and were done while sitting in my car in a grocery store parking lot. What do you think about that?

Starting off, we have a collection of nakey gals in a variety of body types, including my favorite, the pregnant lady on the end.

Here is a tatted up alternative gal going topfree, because topless implies that something is missing, and clearly she is not, well, except for her right hand..

This one is inspired by vintage nudist magazines from the 40s to the 60s. I'm simply fascinated by the concept. There is just something about the average mid-century family standing around in their skin enjoying everyday activities, or doing mundane tasks. It's a bit of an odd mixture, like a hybrid of wholesome and creepy (in a good way).
