Dita Von Tiki

A couple weeks ago, Ryan and I went to go see Dita Von Teese in her Strip Strip Hoorayshow. It was the second time I saw this show, the first time about 3 years ago, and it was just as stunning and inspiring. I got to see her Bird of Paradise show for the first time, and I was absolutely starry-eyed the entire time!

So I was inspired by that show to create this piece, entitled Dita Von Tiki! I've been wanting to do a Tiki Room inspired piece, and this came together perfectly with my love of showgirls.

Below are some exploration sketches of Dita and parrots that I did in prep for this piece.
