Alice Thompson created an illustration to go with a limmerick by Edward Lear. Here it is, as well as the Limmerick:
“There was an Old Person of Leeds,
Whose head was infested with beads;
She sat on a stool and ate gooseberry fool,
Which agreed with that person of Leeds.
I loved the detail in the hair and I even atempted this myself, so I know the effort and technical skill it required. The freeform figure is so relaxed and jolly, that she is seen as carefree or even stupid. So I was inspired and tried an illustration in this style (lacking the limmerick of course).
I call her “The Butterly Woman Dances.”
