Sexy Sultry Redhead Skull and Car - Free Public Art by DKP

Sexy Redhead Comic Girl with Dune Buggy and Skull

Sexy, Sultry Redhead, Comic-Girl Art

This is a public-domain dedication (CC0 License, under Creative Commons). This was a project illustration, created by DKP in 1992, submitted to a collaborative writing project for Lex pen-pals. The character was illustrated to fit a specific description, of a woman who traveled through the galaxy in a souped-up, space-flight-capable, dune-buggy-style car. The sultry redhead comic girl, in leather and boots, holds a skull. The character was probably based on some similar character in space fiction, I don't recall. (It was another collaborator's description). I hereby release my copyright! (D.K. Pritchett). My photo/scan is slightly out of focus, and there are shadows. You may have to do some cleanup or airbrushing to use it. You may crop it or alter it in any way. If altered drastically (not just cleanup), then I prefer that you remove my signature from under the front tire. I have posted it on this blog in a larger size. Google Blogger seems to compress this art, but you can snag the full size version from my public file on Flickr.

Ladies with Red Hats

Red Hat 2

Two pieces of art work: each lady has a red hat. The ladies look neat, prim, and conservative. They might be useful for illustrating a 1950s or 1960s style. The art will work well as an illustration of pages relating to senior citizens. They were done as part of a series of the red-hat ladies in purple dresses. These two turned out looking more like straight-forward portraits of elderly ladies, or fashion illustrations of yesteryear, than like the light-hearted cartoons of the rest of the series. The medium is watercolor on paper. They are signed and dated DKP 08. Dominant colors are red, purple, brown, and pink.

Feel free to use them as you like: as is, cropped, re-vamped in an image editor, or altered however you wish. They are being placed in the public domain by the artist!

High-School Art: Daylily Watercolor

High-School Art: Daylily Watercolor


This daylily artwork was from my high-school days. It is actually mixed media on drawing or sketch paper: mainly watercolor, but with pencil and possibly pastel and colored ink. It does show a good sensitivity for the subject matter, in spite of its amateur qualities. I haven't tried to fix it: it is presented "as is," with stains and wrinkles. I'm adding this to the public domain. Possible uses are as decoration, if you like it. It could also be useful for a sample of art done by a high-school-aged child, for the purpose of critique or to illustrate an educational point. My guess is that I did it at age fifteen or sixteen, as it compares to other work and subject matter of that time.

Blind Man's Buff illustration, clothing of approximately Civil War era. The art is a line drawing in black-and-white or grayscale, of a blind-folded lady playing blind-man's buff in a parlor, with a man, woman, and little girl. One of these is a PNG, the other is a JPEG. I did the artwork for a history project, but did not use it. I am releasing it to the public domain. Here is the full-sized JPEG, if Blogger allows the original size:

I created this cupid border art using mixed media, including watercolor. I used it in several designs for postcards for my other website, Southern Muse. It is designed as a border or bracket for a card or photo, in which the cupid would be holding up or pressing against the card/photo. I hereby release this artwork into the public domain.
