body as artist’s canvas

drawing in a knee and leg

Robert Picault

We have long loved to draw and write notes on our hands, but only occasionally have imagined the possibilities for drawing on the rest of our bodies. Then we found these two unattributed pictures from Under the Sun and really GOT IT, first with a charming Picasso-esque image (It IS Picasso) and then the wildly-liberated pint-sized artist’s scribblings below (slightly disturbing, though no harm seems to have been done).

There are so many possibilities, we wonder why we don’t see it more, as one more avenue of fashion and expression…
