Betty Page art

The drawing in this post is a special "commission". I was asked to give some art for a charity. I must admit that I did not understand all the details, the original message was in Italian but I did get that they were trying to sell artwork to help fund an african charity, in Tanzania. An italian penpal gave my name and I wound up in the company of Milo Manara, Giuseppe Camuncoli, Gabriel of the eight, Giuseppe of Bernardo, Corrado Mastantuono, Fabrizio Fiorentino and Stefano Raffaele. I'm impressed that Manara is in there...Anyway, since these artists are in the "good girl" style, I decided to use an idea for a future project and explore it a bit in this context. Plus, Betty Page is easily recognisable. So if you want to buy my artwork, you should get in touch with Roberto Riccio here and here.
