52 Week Illustration Challenge - Week 5 1920's

What a fun week this has been. Look back at the 1920's it was such a time of contrasts, jazz, prohibition, gangsters, great fashions... I decided to do 2 images for this week. I could have done so many more as well.

The ladies hats were stunning. I love hats. I wish I could get away with wearing a hat these days.

Harry Houdini was at the height of his fame as an illusionist and escape artist before dying in 1926. I remember watching a movie based on his life. He was an interesting man. This is based on the image he used on many of his posters.
