Last night at around 7pm I wrote up a recap posting of this past Sunday's ATL housewives. It was full of snide remakes about Bravo dredging the bottom of the barrel to find new cast member Marlo. She's pretty bad. A "socialite" who has been arrested seven times and uses designers objects to derive her self-worth. Actually that might sound like an interesting character if you've never seen the show but if you are watching, then you know otherwise. She's loud and thoughtless and she'll scream 'faggot' if she's in an argument which is perfect for a show on Bravo. This franchise is home to many batshit crazy people but, to me, she's not watchable. She makes me mad. In that posting I started last night, I also went into great detail about how horribly most of these women are behaving on their South African trip. A trip which most people would relish and learn from but not the majority of these dames. Lots of complaints and a lack of interest in experiencing the local culture and Marlo brought 29 pairs of designer shoes and a slew of handbags. Why? Because she insists we know that she has these things. And in case you forget she has them, she'll bark about it endlessly. Bleh! So after I finished that posting I hit publish and typically a few seconds later and it appears on my blog. But not last night. I hit publish and then an odd swirling icon which I've never seen before appeared on my screen. Huh? I was able to get on other sites so it wasn't an internet thing. I left my laptop open until about 11pm and it was still stuck in that mode so I just had to shut it off and all I'd written was lost. Oh well..... it's probably Karma for all the awful yet I feel accurate detailing I went into about Marlo. Maybe it's best that posting is gone because I do not want to be the reason for mugshot number 8. :)
What I drew from the episode was when the ladies went to a dinner party and their faces were detailed with some beautiful painted dot patterns. There was no significance to the designs, they were just ornamentation.
Were those painted dots to be emblematic of each woman's character, then Marlo would certainly have had this painted on her face.
I did that image from start to finish in about twenty minutes so if she looks like a dude then all the better.
Ink on sketchbook paper with digital dots. :)
