A Fifties Fantasy Babe vs. A Fifties Reality Babe

April 18, 2013
Worked this morning on a Fifties Fantasy Babe. Every 14-year-old boy has a fantasy "girl" he desires. In the days of my youth, she had to have Big Hair and big, uh, eyes. Anyway, seems somewhat embarrassing now, but, amazingly this caricature still turns my crank, as my dad liked to say.

From this cliche, I turned my attention to what this "girl" would probably really be like in real life:
