SOPHIE LA GIRAFE ... all grown up

SOPHIE LA GIRAFE is an iconic French teething toy that basically

EVERY French baby has owned for the past 50 years.

I paint in a style I call "RETRO POP"

and this is the perfect subject for me....

Using the iconic Girafe image and shape - but playing with it.

Here I imagined that SOPHIE is now a rebellious teenager -

with a punk vibe, piercings and spunk -

hanging out in the Belleville neighborhood of Paris -

by the AUX FOLIES bar where all the sprayers and models mix.

There will be a whole series of SOPHIE paintings - this is my very first one.

I LOVE PARIS IN THE SPRINGTIME

Original painting in acrylics on canvas
