The OC gals were still in Costa Rica this week and behaving as badly as possible. Tamra and Gretchen were acting like drunken sorority girls on spring break: constantly belting out a party yowl while flashing their boobs. Vicki was an emotional roller coaster: woo-hooing one minute then the next crying and saying they were going to be dead one day. ??? Heather kept it together though with a look at all times like, 'what am I doing on this show? Being on here better lead to another sitcom.' And then there's Alexis, poor Alexis. Here she is during her "pretentious intervention" in Costa Rica.
That intervention lead by Tamra had all the subtlety of a closed-fist punch in the face or a direct kick to the crotch with a steel-toed boot. Personally I'd have taken a different approach with Alexis. Perhaps a "pretentiousness encouragement" or a "pretentious enhancement" session. To me, she's at her best while simultaneously discussing: Jesus, her husband/king, their fleet of cars, her jewelry, her "couture" clothing line for strippers, their various homes, her competitive parenting ability, and her size triple J (for Jesus) implants.
I chose that still of Alexis to draw because it was such an odd mix of elements: that softball sized ring, those enormous furled filler lips, that avalanche of extensions, that sparkle eyeshadow, and anytime someone is crying while wearing fake eyelashes--- I'm intrigued. It's sad, glamorous, and weird which I find to be a good mix. It's a Lexitini served straight up a side of white elephant. :)
Drawing of Alexis completed with ink, pen, and marker on paper with digital color.
