Socc it to me!



Do you remember the show Laugh-In? I remember watching that show with my parents and sometimes laughing so hard we were crying. What a goofy bunch they were. And they had both older comedians that were already established and they gave the start to many new stars. I wasn't so sure that Goldie Hawn was going to be a star since she was known for dancing in a bikini but she sure has aged beautifully. And if you are younger than me - she is the mom of Kate Hudson! Goldie, and others, were often asked to say the phrase 'Sock it to me!' and they never knew if there would be a bucket of water thrown on them.


So, when it came to doing this challenge to use the tangle pattern 'Socc', I wanted to recreate the style and  feel of that show. I found a picture from the show and used that to inspire me for the colors and design of my background. Then I chose tangles that gave me the feel of the graffitti that was painted on Goldie Hawn's body in those bikini shots. Those were painted with color from my markers. Then the tangles were done with a colored Micron. Finally shading was done with a colored pencil.
