ABOUT THE ART
The 50 Babes Project is a new series capturing beautiful babes (men & women) from each state. It is my love letter to the vintage postcards we all know and love.
A tip of the hat to the brothers of flight, the Wright Brothers, who made the first controlled powered airplane flights a few miles outside of the town Kitty Hawk at Kill Devil Hills. One of the brothers was always seen wearing a bowler hat, which can be seen in Lachlan's hands. Behind her onlookers witness one of the Wright brothers' famous flights. Below the horizon line is a green polka dot pattern that adorns every Krispy Kreme box of donuts. The donut shop was founded in Winston-Salem in 1937. A cigarette effortlessly dangles from her lips hinting at the agriculture history and importance of the tobacco industry in North Carolina.
