i’m jealous of charlotta janssen


Hilarious and beautiful… I’m sold. This is from a series called Inappropriately Dressed by New York based painter Charlotta Janssen. Now, if you’ve ever found yourself inappropriately dressed for an occasion, you could be her next subject. I’m not kidding, this is from her site:

I will photograph, sketch and paint individuals and groups who are slightly or very inappropriately dressed for something. Anyone who’d like to send me images of themselves or others as material for inspiration – please upload them [under] inappropriately interactive … should I choose to sketch or paint from your image, I will send you an 8″ x 10″ print if you include your address …’

Ok, so how many of you are putting on a prom dress and heading to the laundromat right now? Yep, me too… don’t forget your camera!

    Her website is amazing!!! And on a quick scroll thru, I’m quite sure I could be one of her subjects. Thanks for posting this.

    Ha! That’s great… well, if you send her one, send it to me too… especially if it ends up being a prom dress at the laundromat! ; )

    I would love it if peops sent me some awkward pics to paint from, but alas to this day I waited with baited breath at my inbox for peculiarly dressed people.

    At least I got my mom to strip down, but I still need mer permission post painting …

    Really? Well, may I introduce you to ‘Heather’ above… it sounds like she might be a peculiarly dressed person! ; )
