Paper Doll: Joy from Lamb

It’s been a few days since I managed to finish a drawing to post, but here it is!

A few days ago I finished the book “Lamb: The Gospel According to Biff, Christ’s Childhood Pal” by Chrostopher Moore. It was wonderful. Incredibly funny and thought provoking. This is one of my favorite short passages:

The angel and I watched Star Wars for the second time on television last night, and I just had to ask. “You’ve been in God’s presence, right, Raziel?”
“Of course.”
“Do you think he sounds like James Earl Jones?”
“Who’s that?”
“Darth Vader.”
Raziel listened for a moment while Darth Vader threatened someone. “Sure, a little. He doesn’t breathe that heavy though.”
“And you’ve seen God’s face.”
“Yes.”
“Is he black?”
“I’m not allowed to say.”
“He is, isn’t he? If he wasn’t you’d just say he wasn’t.”
“I’m not allowed to say.”
“He is.”
“He doesn’t wear a hat like that,” said Raziel.
“Ah-ha!”
“All I’m saying is no hat. That’s all I’m saying.”
“I knew it.”
“I don’t want to watch this anymore.” Raziel switched the channel. God (or someone who sounded like him) said, “This is CNN.”

So I decided to draw one of the outfits described in the book. This dress was worn by Joy (which is short for Tiny Feet of the Divine Dance of Joyous Orgasm, but that’s too long, so they call her just Joy). Joy is a chinese concubine who lives with one of the three kings. Anyway, she’s a woman who is sexy and totally deadly at the same time (and not in a creepy way). This dress is apparently just the kind of thing she wears around every day and since it sounded pretty, Idrew it. The chinese dragon isn’t perfect, but it’s not awful either. To use this as an actual paper doll dress you would have to cut along the slit in the skirt so that her right leg could peek out.

Here’s the dress.
