Pencil and marker

The vitality and the humor of the sketch both have their source in the way such an amply-proportioned woman is shown romping so energetically: both its persuasiveness and its comic effect are emphasized by the necklace hovering in mid-air. The means involved are so simple that one recognizes the line itself – thick where it describes the woman’s hips and breasts, but thinner in her face and hands – to be animated by what can only be described as an intrinsically comic energy.
