Busby Berkeley Girls....

  The illustrated creation of Bunny and Una seems to have ventured forth to create two more perfectly coiffed members of the chorus....

  Marlene and Gloria...

Hair is made from  golden muga silk top roving, which is quite difficult to get hold of but its very luxurious. It's quite fine and difficult to work with but I think you'll agree it's super pretty.

  They really are quite the spellbinding little team. Bunny and Una will always however remain my leading ladies in the 'Once a Showgirl' illustrated series.


Just a photo of my latest Bunny and Una illustration. I am creating all the paintings in gouache



Marlene, Gloria and Bunny
