Greetings, Art Monkeys!
If you have no time for geeky bullshit, you may be unaware that Detective Comics is undergoing a "reboot," overhauling their classic characters with a fresh edge for the 90's. Wait what decade is it again? Ah, close enough. Anyway, in the deplorable Suicide Squad #1, we saw the new Juggalo-styled Harley Quinn and felt kind of queasy. How refreshing, then, that at the last session of Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School, Lucy Sky Diamond, Tasmania's Bonfire on Legs, came dressed as a Pierrette doll, and showed everyone how to do a gender-flipped Commedia Dell'Arte character right. The marvelous Kate Black took photographs.
You know, I never played with dolls much as a kid, but I really should start.
See what Lucy can do with a chair? And I bet you're just sitting in yours. Lazy bastards.
Some behind-the-scenes shots show Lucy's dramatic transformation into someone with hair.
This shot reminds me - Steve Prue hasn't photographed for us in a while.
In case you were wondering, yes, those legs go all the way up.
Our hard-working audience.
A Slash doll indicates that someone has scored a touchdown.
Pierrette pines for her love, Cal Lumbine.
Foley, Yao, and I - some of the best-covered heads in show business.
A Pierrette pirouette. Try saying that three times fast.
With a little imagination, anything can be a codpiece.
That is some damn fancy art.
And colour makes it even fancier.
However, only the Jack-in-the-Box drawing above won the Squishable T-Rex. That doesn't necessarily make it better art, just more worthwhile.
And they all lived happily ever after.
Thank you to Melissa, Kate, Foley, Yao, Keith, and Jawad (whose name I hope I got right).
