Fade to Black...

Karen Black by Sophie Cossette

Learning the sad news about the death of the excellent and offbeat actress Karen Black two days ago made me pick up the pen and draw this caricature in tribute to her and her unique features. She was a real fixture on the big screen during the “Easy Riders, Raging Bulls” era of American cinema in the late ‘60s and ‘70s. One of my favorite movies starring Black is the 1975 film, “Day of The Locust”, an adaptation of Nathanael West’s satirical novel about struggling folks on the fringes of Hollywood, a subject dear to my heart.
