Lady Killer: Joelle Jones

Lady Killer 1

I never say this person’s the best artist, the best writer, the best actor, etc. But I’m not timid about saying who are my favorites, and the brilliant Joelle Jones is on that list. Incredibly skilled with design and composition as well as an artful stylist, Jones isn’t content being a terrific artist, but has to be an inventive and creative writer as well…the show-off. Some handiwork of her best project so far (IMHO) shown here: Lady Killer, about 1960’s suburban housewife Josie Schuller, who’s also happens to be a lethal hit woman.

I Still Miss Hayley Atwell

Lesson learned: Never get hooked on a TV show. The damn networks will just cancel it once you’re fully invested.

Some handsome artwork above by Arne Ratermanis of Hayley Atwell as Agent Peggy Carter, complete with that wonderful red hat of hers.

Emerald Noir

Luscious noir-ish paintings — in vibrant green, no less, rather than customary blues, blacks and greys —  by Sina Pakzad Kasra from 2018. Both appear to be reworks of — or homages to — scenes form Hitchcock’s Vertigo, right?  Whatever the inspiration, they’re great.

A lovely period femme fatale, looking like she pranced right out of an early 1930’s film or pre-war pulp tale. By Lyon, France illustrator and painter Mikael Bourgouin. Look for more of his work at Behance.net.

Does Everyone Have A Gun?

Warren Louw

I count five in this handsome piece of noir-art by Warren Louw, and I don’t doubt there are more hidden inside suit coats and under skirts. This is one nightclub it’d be best to steer clear of.

Battelli’s Lonely (And Dangerous) Beds

Lucrezia Batteli - StudyThey say a bed with only one person in it at night can be the loneliest place in the world. Maybe so, if you’re still licking your wounds. Maybe not, if you never intend to let it happen again.
