1920's, Art Deco, Jazz Babies... (flappers)

1920's, Art Deco, Jazz Babies... (flappers) illustration by Nicola L Robinson


It is hard not to notice the current resurgence of interest in the 1920's fashions and styles partly fuelled by the newest film adaptation of F Scott Fitzgerald's novel The Great Gatsby and the ever growing vintage scene.

This new illustration of mine (a private commission) takes as its inspiration the 1920's, Jazz, Art Deco and Flappers- or Jazz Babies in this case as these girls love to dance!...


Here are a couple of 'in progress' photos of the ink drawing -
Warning inking in progress!...
