From The Vault: Marilyn - 2004

This is a pretty straightforward portrait, coming off having seen one of Monroe's early films, the noir classic The Asphalt Jungle.

Since Monroe is one of--if not the--most recognized American icons, I never really got inspired to do a portrait of her, but this has a pulpy simplicity that I like. Maybe could use a little more detail, but I think the contrast and the placement is what makes it work.
