Hi Marlo,

Your Sokol studies are awesome, I totally want to paint now. I like how they're still in Marlo colors.

Sokol was a master colourist & could draw like a sonufabitch! No finer artist to learn from, excellent work.

Nicely painted. The girl's right arm is a little undefined and hard to read (especially before it's enlarged), but it's certainly better than I can do.

Well done.

Elizabeth J. Smith said...

Nice work, Marlo!
Do you ever look at the work of Lisa Yuskavage? If you haven't, I feel like you'd like her. She's a personal favorite of mine.

Marlo said...

Hey Beth! I've looked at Lisa's work a long time ago, but thanks, it was worth a revisit.

These are awesome studies. This second one is phenomenal (first one is good too!).
cool take on the color palette while maintaining the designs and composition. Sokol rules.

Sokol is a badass.

my best friiends sister worked at playboy in the advertising department for years-at a young age my friend got a free subscription to playboy-making him the coolest kid in the hood, i got used to everything, and i mean everything, playboy had to offer from the mid seventies til the mid eighties, i got bored with the playmates, started really getting into the artwork, the playboy funnies. one year, on my birthday, my friends sister got me these large panels of playboy cartoons-after they printed of course-about seven sheets-representing all the different artist that contributed-it wasnt signed or anything but i didnt care-they were copies-but i was still floored-best gift ever!! all ruined in an apartment flood-never got over it! nice to see them again here.
