The Silke Touch

I really like Jim Silke's draughtsmanship and ability to evoke earlier golden age times. He is a true aficionado of the 30s and 40s, and yet has a truly modern style. Love his work.

Here are a few actresses rendered with the Silke touch.

Gene Tierney

Doloros Del Rio

Clara Bow

Anna Mae Wong

i have not seen much of his work, but these are all really nice. I think the Gene Tierney is the best rendered but i always have a soft spot for Clara Bow so that's my fave. great stuff!
