Metroheads - Pink and Black Power

It's Friday, and we need something strong to begin with.

The Lady in pink , what is she thinking, she looks bored, or concerned? Is it because she doesn't know whether she should change her life now or later, or is she thinking about tonight's dinner?

The Lady in black, she just has finished a very animated phone-conversation and is now concentrating on what has been said. It sounded like an argument, was she having a fight with her mother about how not to spoil the kid and let him do everything he wants to?

You are just so good Andrea!
I love the thoughts behind the drawings too. The second one does look like she is pouting...Ma must have given her a piece of her mind.

YOu just get better and better. I wish I could do this. but I would be chicken in the first place. But it looks like everyone is in their own world anyway. good job. love this.

Yes, the second lady sure has a grim look on her face. Like, hmmm now what do I do. Maybe the first lady heard the conversation and is pondering it too. Could these metroheads be put on T-shirts or is that too mundane/??

Andrea, you are amazing!

I think the woman in pink is thinking about the weekend. She has a project she wants to do, but she could also do some networking by having dinner with some people. She would rather do the project, but the people at the dinner may provide her with some means to move forward with other work....oh, what is a woman to do?

The woman in black is a little miffed because her sister is interested in the same man she is interested in. She wants her sister to back off, but the sister wants her to back off. She is probably rationalizing that if she doesn't back off then there will be a cat fight and no one will get this man. And she is smart enough to know the right man isn't going to be interested in her sister anyway...she has just come to the wise realization that allowing life to unfold as it should makes the most sense!

I have no idea where I came up with these stories. I think the expressions on their faces remind me of stories of myself or other women I have known. :)

Your drawings do the strangest thing to me, Andrea! ...and I love it!

Thanks my friend and have a beautiful weekend!

PS...Suki, they could be put on any number of items, I agree...how about posters in the Paris Metro? Cool! Then cards, mugs, t-shirts, tote bags....what do you think?

Thanks so much for all your sweet comments and the beautiful stories about what you saw in the picture:) (Kim, that could be a mystery novel:) or the script for a new series replacing Sex and the City:)

Lynniskynni:) Thanks for checking in here although you are busy with your beautiful road-trip! I like your comment saying that the lady is pouting:) Thas is what she looked like: a pouting lady:)

Cestandrea said...

Cris, thanks so much, I know I have the incredible chance to have all these beautiful models at my disposal, every day of the week. I thought of that the other day, and felt very lucky and vowed not be stressed anymore by metroing..
Which is easy to say now,at a time in the year were traffic is low and I can draw at my leasure:) Wait and hear me rant next time I can't find a place to sit and have to endure the garlic smelling guy with greasy hair right next to me, LOL,
love
Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Suki, thank you:) The grim lady:) Alos thanks for the T§shirt idea, I should try that with one, just to know if people like it or not. Great idea.
love
Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Tammy:) thanks for visiting although I'm still not yet back to the masks you love:) yes the "toutous" like they call the little skirts of the ballerinas are Degas' work, I love the comparison with Toulouse Lautrec I think he did revolutionary drawings and paintings,
love
Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Elis, thanks for visiting, that is a pleasure for me! I think I just have to put little stories to these faces so that they become more "visible", or so..
love
Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Kim, thanks so much for this great story, what a pleasure to see what these pictures inspires you to:) Love the story;
love
Andrea

Cestandrea said...

Jill, thanks so much for your comment, and I'm glad you like my drawings, at the moment these quick things are all I do, as I haven't had time to turn to something greater or more substantial, so to speak. It makes me work on my drawing every day, so that is great practise, always good for something
love
Andrea
