Red Heads Do it Better

Well, in follow up to the sketch post for Saint Patrick’s day (long overdue!) here is how the final image came out for the Lady and Leprechaun print.

A tongue in cheek, bawdy Irish pin-up. You are invited to laugh and celebrate your inner Irish. Who’s the lucky one? The girl with the newfound gold or the leprechaun himself?

This piece is titled, “Devil Take the Women” after the old Irish tune, Whiskey in the Jar.

“I counted out his money and it made a pretty penny
I put it in me pocket and I took it home to Jenny
She sighed and she swore that she never would deceive me
But the devil take the women for they never can be easy”

A fun addition to the home gallery. Chic / Fashion / Retro / Rockabilly / Prehistoric
