Young Loretta

Filed under: DRAWINGS,Portraits — Tags: , , — Colby @ 9:12 am

Occasionally I watch Turner Classic Movies (TCM). I came across an old movie starring Loretta Young. I remember her fondly from her TV days. I looked her up on the Internet and came across a photo of her when she was young and decided to draw her on my iPad. I didn’t realize it until I had finished the drawing that the photo of her was taken when she was only 14 years old!

Cyclops!

Here’s another one of those posters I did with Marks-A-Lot to advertise the movies we showed the kids at the recreation center. The black ink is faded and the poster board is yellowing and stained.

It Came From Beneath The Sea!

Back in my previous life we would show movies to the kids at the recreation center. This was before tapes and DVDs. Before Blockbuster, Netflix, etc. We’d use a biggo projector and actual 16mm film and show them on the wall until we built a homemade canvas screen. The kids would sit on tumbling mats we spread around on the floor.

I would make posters to let them know what movie was coming up. I managed to save a couple of them. Here’s one. The colors have faded and the poster board is turning yellow.
