CHADPOPS’ ‘Working Girls Throughout The Ages’ Sketchcard Set Released
This week saw the release of CHADPOPS highly anticipated sketchcard set ‘Working Girls Throughout the Ages’. I have been waiting to show you these cards for a while, mostly because I am very proud of them and really enjoyed all of the research that went into the history, costuming and even religion associated with the evolution of prostitution. I even managed to get a carnival character in there down to all of my research into circus culture while working on ‘Cirque Du Mort’. The three legged woman you can see in my contributions is my interpretation of Blanche Dumas, a French courtesan who was born with three legs (and two vaginas! Not pictured *wink*). I have also included famous historical women who also happened to be prostitutes including the famous pirate Ching Shih, Calamity Jane (if only Doris Day knew!), Nell Gwynn and Mata Hari; and some religious characters including St. Mary Magdelene, the Aztec Goddess Xochiqutzal and Babylonian Goddess Ishtar. I also drew two male prostitutes – a Roman gladiator and a Japanese kagema.
You can see the entire collection of my contributions here, but below are a selection of some of my favourites. I hope you like them and you can also check them out on my Facebook and my Instagram @AnastasiaCatris.
