|"'Slash' and Stacey" by Carmen K. Welsh (c)|
Here are my main protagonists: 'Slash' and Stacey.
My gangster is in typical Summer Chic fashion. All he needs - & he will get it in the final draft - is a porkpie hat! (That's the straw hat with black band men wore during the summer months & visiting South America in those days).
My girl-next-door is in the summer suits women often wore during the work-week. Notice her clutch bag and skull cap (typical of women's hats during the 1920s-1930s).
I enjoyed drawing Stacey's saddle shoes. I had a pink & white pair as a kid.
