Maryilyn Monroe – Pop art

This is an image I popped into some modern-day pop art!  With a little Illustrator fun and Photoshop magic, I created this image.  Adding a zebra print and a bit of color to the backing to finish it off.  Hope you like!  Here’s the image I worked off of in making my pop art.  Of course she’s much prettier than anything I can create of her, but I still love how my pop art of her came out!  I changed it up and gave her some dark hair, though.

Marilyn Monroe quotes - I just love her words of wisdom. 
“I’m selfish, impatient and a little insecure. I make mistakes, I am out of control and at times hard to handle. But if you can’t handle me at my worst, then you sure as hell don’t deserve me at my best.”

“I believe that everything happens for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you appreciate them when they’re right, you believe lies so you eventually learn to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart so better things can fall together.”

“Imperfection is beauty, madness is genius and it’s better to be absolutely ridiculous than absolutely boring.”

“A wise girl kisses but doesn’t love, listens but doesn’t believe, and leaves before she is left.”

“I am good, but not an angel. I do sin, but I am not the devil. I am just a small girl in a big world trying to find someone to love.”
“If you can make a girl laugh, you can make her do anything.”

“If you’re gonna be two-faced at least make one of them pretty.”

“When it comes down to it, I let them think what they want. If they care enough to bother with what I do, then I’m already better than them.”

“It’s better to be unhappy alone than unhappy with someone.”

“The real lover is the man who can thrill you by kissing your forehead or smiling into your eyes or just staring into space.”

“Give a girl the right shoes, and she can conquer the world.”

“Ever notice how ‘What the hell’ is always the right answer?”

“We should all start to live before we get too old. Fear is stupid. So are regrets.”

“Beneath the makeup and behind the smile I am just a girl who wishes for the world.”

“I’ve never fooled anyone. I’ve let people fool themselves. They didn’t bother to find out who and what I was. Instead they would invent a character for me. I wouldn’t argue with them. They were obviously loving somebody I wasn’t.”

“She was a girl who knew how to be happy even when she was sad. And that’s important—you know ”

“I don’t mind living in a man’s world, as long as I can be a woman in it.”

“Who said nights were for sleep?”

“This life is what you make it. Not matter what, you’re going to mess up sometimes, it’s a universal truth. But the good part is you get to decide how you’re going to mess it up. Girls will be your friends – they’ll act like it anyway. But just remember, some come, somg go. The ones that stay with you through everything – they’re your true best friends. Don’t let go of them. Also remember, sisters make the best friends in the world. As for lovers, well, they’ll come and go too. And babve, I hate to say it, most of them – actually pretty much all of them are going to break your heart, but you can’t give up becuase if you give up, you’ll never find your soul mate. You’ll never find that half who makes you whole and that goes for everything. Just because you fail once, doesn’t mean you’re gonna fail at everything. Keep trying, hold on, and always, always, always believe in yourself, because if you don’t, then who will, sweetie? So keep your head high, keep your chin up, and most importantly, keep smiling, because life’s a beautiful thing and there’s so much to smile about.”

“Success makes so many people hate you. I wish it wasn’t that way. It would be wonderful to enjoy success without seeing envy in the eyes of those around you.”

“Hollywood is a place where they’ll pay you a thousand dollars for a kiss and fifty cents for your soul. I know, because I turned down the first offer often enough and held out for the fifty cents.”

“I don’t mind being burdened with being glamorous and sexual. Beauty and femininity are ageless and can’t be contrived, and glamour, although the manufacturers won’t like this, cannot be manufactured. Not real glamour; it’s based on femininity.”

“I’m very definitely a woman and I enjoy it. ”

“I used to think as I looked out on the Hollywood night — there must be thousands of girls sitting alone like me, dreaming of becoming a movie star. But I’m not going to worry about them. I’m dreaming the hardest.”

“If I play a stupid girl and ask a stupid question, I’ve got to follow it through, what am I supposed to do, look intelligent?”

“We are all born sexual creatures,thank God, but it’s a pity so many people despise and crush this natural gift.”

“What do I wear in bed? Why, Chanel No. 5, of course”

“Before marriage, a girl has to make love to a man to hold him. After marriage, she has to hold him to make love to him.”

    Love the Marilyn Monroe quotes. She was a lot smarter than the dumb blonde characters she played. Why did you base your artwork on an image of Lisa Marie Presley made up as Marilyn? It’s an imitation of an imitation.

      Is it really? Yes, her quotes were brilliant. That’s for sure. Too many favorites to pick. Good question. I really thought the pic was of Marilyn. Are you sure it’s Lisa Marie Presley? I had no idea. Anyhow, if you’re right, then I did an imitation of an imitation! I didn’t know it was Lisa Marie. I thought it was Marilyn. If it’s not Marilyn, then Lisa Marie did a pretty good job at imitating Marilyn in the picture she took.
