A commissioned piece. She wanted to have me re-imagine her online persona. I opted to use the works of George Petty as inspiration, and took the orange-y shade of his 50’s pinup and how he usually poses his models. I had so much fun drawing this character, which I hope shows.
In loving memory to Cheryl Ochinero. On the night of September 8th 2007 she lost control of her motorcycle and struck a tree. Emergency-services personnel at the scene were unable to revive her. Cheryl was 27 years of age when she died.
