IF - geeky


I did this illo for IF based on the 1960's board game - Barbie, Queen of the Prom. I used to play this game with my sister and her friends and I would ALWAYS get stuck with Poindexter, the supposed 'Geek' of the game. Ken was the hottie back then, but looking at him (and Tom and Bob) today, they are ALL GEEKS! I was originally going to just do something with my man, Poindexter (is that a geeky name or what!), but the other 3 were just too hard to resist. Barbie, of course, always looks fabulous! I decided to call it Beauty and the Geeks, to bring these classic icons into today's world. I Love that show! Can't wait for it to come on again.

My big sister used to make me play the Barbie game with her and engineer it some way that I would always wind up with Poindexter- but I can view your excellent illustration without the unpleasent flashback now so I guess I can forgive my sister.
