The Present of Madonna

This quick sketch has turned into one of my favorite illustrations of 2008. I've been looking a 100s of published illustrators sites and blogs to see what they have that I need. I realize that I would love to have an illustration or many in Rolling Stone ~ so I have decided to embark on a celebrity painting quest. This is the first of a least 5/hopefully more. Then I can send the package around to potential reps.
Of course I started with Madonna because she is my all time favorite celebrity.

IF: Worry

She is very upset that her husband left to become a rodeo clown. She believes there are other motives behind it besides his love of being a clown and large live stock. From the depth of her soul however, she knows that there is a woman. ~~ A lovely woman with skin that tans and the ability to apply little or no make-up...that has captured Alfred's heart.

"Alfred, why'd ya do it?" and "WHY?!?" are two of a four piece series (the other two are still in my head).
Acrylic and mixed media ~ collage.
