Cascade Drawing

When I made this drawing I was looking at a lot of photos from the 1910s and 1920s. Most were of  Ziegfeld models, especially of those by the photographer Alfred Cheney Johnston. I was also very  inspired by the performers Nita and Zita, the Dolly Sisters, Anita Berber, Mata Hari, burlesque costumes, antique headpieces and turn of the century illustration. This was drawn by hand and colorized in Photoshop with hand painted water color textures that I scanned.
