Beauty and the Beast
Breck girl illustration (from advertisement in a 1950s hair salon magazine) and a clay mask of a beast-like man -- I cut away a huge portion of it eliminating the long beard which would have covered Beauty's lovely neck and pearls. I liked the tension between the two elements. I added the telephone wire behind to create a feeling of further tension (thanks to a 1950s Western Electric magazine).
