I love Harley Quinn. Not the one in the mediocre Suicide Squad film. She looked cool, but that’s not my Harley at all. My Harley is the cheeky under appreciated prankster in jingly bells!
I loved working on her hair in this picture, even though that meant I couldn’t give her the iconic jester hat. And there was something else missing in the composition when I first worked on it. Then I realised what it was. Harley is this innocent, hilarious, whacky, loving character that might kiss you, but might also wallop you on the head with her mallet! So the mallet had to go in there.
We’ve all known that amazing woman who falls for the wrong man and dotes on him, despite the fact that he’s clearly a crazy lunatic! Lovely Harley escapes the Joker’s clutches eventually and goes off on her own adventures, but I’m sure he still misses her.
