Britney Spears, Cheesey Puffs lover. The restored version.
A variation of this illustration of Britney Spears appeared in Entertainment Weekly back when the "pop princess" was at the height of her fame and paparazzi harassment. I was asked to depict her as the simple, nutty, white-trash girl she only yearned to be, enjoying her favorite snack treat "Cheesey Puffs" in a 711 store, oblivious to the media attention. Much to my surprise, When the illustration appeared in print, the editors chose to omit the orange "cheesey" substance from her teeth & around her lips.
Now, on this exciting dawn of Britney's "Summer comeback tour", she's been restored to her full "cheesey" glory.
