Day 12-18-18 - (2018) 3 2 1 to Double Happiness
A tribute to painter Paul Klee (Dec 18, 1879 - Jun 29, 1940) for his 139th birthday, with a stylized portrait of my muse YRlin inspired by Klee's Crystal Gradation (1921) and Growth of the Night Plants (1922).
Day 12-17-18 - Diva & Born Sexy Yesterday
A tribute to actress Milla Jokovich (Dec 17, 1975 - ) for her 43th birthday, with an illustration of Diva & Leeloo from Luc Besson's the Fifth Element (1997).
"Born Sexy Yesterday" is a trope describes a female archetype that is often used by Hollywood movies, as the "ideal" love interest of the male protagonist.
This female archetype has the body of an adult woman, but her mind is as innocent as if she was born yesterday.
Now when I see Leeloo, I can't help to think she fits the "Born Sexy Yesterday" archetype perfectly.
I like how he summarized his video essay:
"Innocence is not sexy, knowledge and experience (maturity) are."
