2010 Gypsy color art by Oliver Nome

"this was a donation for a charity"
This is one of my favorite Gypsy pictures ever. Marrying most of the basics of her original Chuck Patton costume to the more streamlined, mature, but conceptually vague Sal Velluto take on the character yields a heroine recognizable as her namesake without looking like a dated joke. Great job, and quite lovely! Color really brings the piece home, but the naked linework is quite pretty on its own.

I wish that she was in the new JLofA. She'd fit nicely.
