Oh my great googlymoogly, Lego Disney Princesses! How did they come out without me noticing? I’ve been saying for ages I’d kill for Lego Disney princesses, and here we are. Yes it’s Lego Friends so is pink and girly, but pshaw, I care not for Disney Princesses should be pink and girly and it’ll not stop me buying them for my boys. I rather especially want the Rapunzel set.
One of the many great things about Some Like It Hot is that it totally recognises what it’s like for women to be objectified. The first time you see Sugar, it’s that iconic pan-up jello-on-springs shot, where she is just The Object. But Jerry and Joe almost immediately learn what it’s like to be the object of sexual harassment. And Jerry, who here wants to be “a bull again”, by the end of the film has embraced his Daphne persona and realised that femininity isn’t just something to be either objectified or rejected.
tl;dr this film says more interesting things about gender and sexual politics than most media today.
You don’t know how much I love this movie.
There’s barely ever been a better film that tackles gender politics so well. The sad thing is that some 75 years later things really haven’t changed all that much.
“She seemed very shy, and I remember that when the studio workers would whistle at her, it seemed to embarrass her.” - Cary Grant
Damn, she was a stunning woman.
What with number two boy on his way and my laptop about to give up the ghost any day now I really need to raise a bit of extra cash, so I’m having a bit of an art sale.
All original art pages from Knight & Dragon, The Dead Queen Detectives and Amber And The Egg are now on sale for £50 each. All pages are pen and ink on A3 (297x420mm) Bristol Board. The Dead Queen Detective pages also include the lettering, the Amber And The Egg ones don’t. £4.50 postage in the UK, £10 ROW, although unless you order huge amounts that push the weight of the package up there’s only one postal charge per delivery rather than per page (should you feel so inclined to order more than one page).
Additionally pretty much anything on my DeviantArt page that isn;t labelled as a commission is for sale, so if you’re interested in anything let me know and I can work out a price (rough guide £20 for A4 black and white pieces, £35 for A3 black and white pieces).
I can possibly fit in commission pieces as well although I do have a couple lined up already and I have no idea how busy I’m going to be when our new one moves in, so I warn you now my timescale for drawing them may be a little longer than normal. Usual commission rates apply; £35 A4 black and white, £50 A3 black and white.
If you are interested drop me an e-mail to email@example.com
As usual any signal boosts very much appreciated.
