50’s Formal Fantasy paper doll.

Sophisticated lady of the 50's doll.50s_gal_d4fin50s_gal_d3fin50s_gal_d2fin50s_gal_d1finThe Fifties Formal Fantasy paper doll set is based on photographs from formal dances that my mother and her bridge club friends provided me. The dresses drawn from these photos were worn at formal dances in the late 1940’s, to early 1950’s. I challenged myself to create the artwork using the gradient mesh in Adobe Illustrator, which was a new feature of the program at the time I made these illustrations.
