I wanted to do a drawing the way Margaret Keane used to do paintings. Everyone knows her work but you may not have known her name. She did people and animals with very big eyes. I did this at work in my notebook using watercolor and colored pencils. A lot of what I do is influenced by artists of the 60's such as Keane. Margaret's husband Walter tried to take credit for doing her paintings. They finally divorced. He said he had a right to all the paintings since he did them. She told the judge she was really the one who painted them. Keane actually painted one live in front of the judge. Her husband declined to do one. Obviously she won. Great story. She is still alive today. Kate Hudson is going to play her in a movie of her life.
