Honey West by Loopydave Honey West by Loopydave
I love all that 60's pulp stuff, movie posters etc and recently discovered the Honey West B&W detective series on Amazon, starring the ever fabulous Anne Francis.

Silly quick tribute pencil sketch, done for fun.

Indeed! Plan to add it to the passengers seat if I ever get around to painting this up.

I remember it so well. Ann Francis was so sexy and dangerous in that show!

I have a copy of the whole series even with the commercials from that time. Most of them are either cigarettes or coffee and one is with Honey, Sally Fields as the Flying Nun, and they are in Bewitch's house on the couch with Elizabeth Montgomery giving the times of the shows. Fun to watch it!

Sounds fantastic! I discovered the show through an Amazon recommendation and bought the DVD box set there... unfortunately it doesnt have those old ads on it though.

Its funny, I started painting it up soon after the sketch but stopped for some commercial work and now its in a folder filled with unfinished pieces. Definitely something I want to finish one day though - and yes, I was going to have the ocelot in the passengers seat :D

Sharp. I'm pretty sure "Honey West" was the first production, TV or film, that showed a woman win a hand to hand fight with a man.

Dont hear about it much these days, but it was kind of a ground breaking series in many ways.

This is beautiful! I've had (and maintain to this day) a crush on Anne Francis! This was my fave of all the cloak and dagger t.v. shows of the 1960s! (yeah, I'm that old!)

YEP, THIS IS SOOOOOO SWEET!!!!

....sorry for the caps lock... yeah, caps lock... that's my story and I am sticking to it. I am in such a Honey West frame of mind right now, and this pic fires on all pistons for me my friend. This is beyond awesome... and as you know I do dig your awesome awesomeness.

Thanks for the trip down memory lane. Although you drew this before Ms. Francis left us... what a beautiful and endearing and enduring mark you made, to honor the mark she has made. Truly beautiful, my friend!!

You big flatterer you! :D After seeing your cover, I wish I had gone just a little more stylized - have I mentioned how freakin' awesome it is yet? ;)
I have another Anne Francis picture in my sketchbook I should finish up sometime - her and the robot from 'Forbidden Planet'. Wish she'd done more movies!!

Nope, I don't think that you have :::goes back and looks::: no wait, yes... yes you did... Frank you!

You totally should finish that other Anne Francis pic... it will rock very much. Hot babe plus forbidden planet bot... equals much of the stuff we all can't get enough of from you... looking forward to it!

Agreed, wishing she could have had the opportunity to do more of the same. By today's standards, we don't think much of it... but she was the first bad girl to star in her own show... a female... good lord, can you see everyone just fainting in the aisles... what's next... women get to vote and then have their own opinions too... its madness I tells ya, madness. She was such a trailblazer... gonna dedicate this Fourth of July weekend to her honor... and watch all the Honey West shows back to back! Let freedom ring... and looking good while kicking ass... :D

Thanks man! Honey West is quite a stylish character, so I'm glad you think I did it justice. Oh, and dont leave your jaw on the floor - I havent mopped the floor for sometime and you're bound to pick up some nasty germs or something. ;)
