When I learned of Phyllis Dillers passing, my first thought was to draw her portrait. But then I talked myself out of it, as I am too busy working on my film. But then my buddy Conard sent me a message saying “You gotta do a portrait of Phyllis Diller”! And he was right! Look at that face! I couldn’t resist! And what can I say? A legend has left this earth!! As someone who grew up with her, it’s strange not having her here. I know she was 90, but she was a part of my life and most people who grew up in the 60’s and 70’s. I’m not gonna lie, she scared the shit out of me as a kid. I think it was her eye brows!! But you gotta give props to a lady who began her career in the 50’s because she was a “bored housewife”. She paved the way for funny lady comediennes since. Rest in Peace Phyllis, I’m sure you’re makin em laugh where ever you are! oxo gd
