Since this weekend is a holiday I wanted to share with you a beautiful sketch to set the tone. Mr. Mackie did a lot of costume illustration for many studio costume designers including this one for Edith Head. This illustration was for one of the showgirls in the movie "A New Kind Of Love" (1963). I love this sketch! Bob Mackie must have been using this opportunity to hone his craft for when Vegas would be tapping him for Jubilee in 1979.
It was actually a couple of sketches from "A New Kind of Love" that allowed me to meet Mr. Mackie, I'll be forever greatful to Eva Gabor. See Story Here.
I hope everyone enjoys the sketch, and their weekend!
