Harley Quinn - 1968



Harley Quinn © DC Comics

I had this in my mind and had to get it down on paper. Harley in a 1968 mode was a given, but it wasn't until I thought of actress Goldie Hawn did I put it together. I could see Goldie (1960s) as Harley.  What a perfect fit. I didn't draw Harley to look like Goldie, but having her in mind did help the process. The baby doll outfit and a modified scarf over her hair seemed to fit the personality of both. I even added some quick digital color to the piece to help define the placement of the red areas.
