Marilyn Monroe by kaczmarek08 Marilyn Monroe by kaczmarek08
I believe things happen for a reason. People change so that you can learn to let go, things go wrong so that you can appreciate them when they're right. You believe lies so you eventually start to trust no one but yourself, and sometimes good things fall apart... so better things can fall together. - Marilyn Monroe

I have been wanting to draw Marilyn for what seems like the longest time now!, I'm glad I finally got around to it. The above quote is one of my most favorite quotes of all time, and are words I can really live by...

I am interested in using one of your Marilyn prints for the front cover of my book, entitled DEAD BUT NOT GONE. I see several that interest me, what's the procedure and how much do you charge?  I assume also that because they are your drawings that there are no copyright issues to be concerned about - correct?

Lovely portrait! But Marilyn never said that quote. There are no sources--interviews, books, etc. that prove she did. The internet is filled with fake and misquotes of her. ;D
