“You will find as you look back upon your life, that the moments when you really lived were the moments when you have done things in the spirit of love.”
The idea of this monthsary drawing was inspired by a vision I had of Taenggu earlier that same month. I’ve shared the story here at TAENGGU IN MY MIND: BETTY BOOP TAENG. I associated her hairstyle to that of Betty Boop, a famous female cartoon character in the 1930s.
To make the idea of Betty Boop Taeng come alive, I merged both images of Taenggu and Betty Boop into a single drawing.
The result was a cheeky, playful face of Taenggu in the body of Betty Boop. 😆 It was done in a caricature style (large face, small body).

"BETTY BOOP TAENG" When I first saw Taenggu's teaser image for SNSD new album "Holiday Night" (1st pic, left), I thought her hair looks really cute! About 1 or 2 days ago, a female cartoon character flashed across my mind. I thought Taenggu's messy double hair buns image looks really similar to this cartoon character whose name I couldn't remember. This morning, I had a vision of the same cartoon character again. Later on, I found out that Taenggu was sporting the exact same hairstyle during her appearance at Inkigayo and fansign today! I had to google to find out that the female cartoon character whom I was thinking about is actually called Betty Boop. 🤔😃 . #taeyeon #태연 #snsd #bettyboop #bettybooptaeng #vision #mindimage #messagefromtheuniverse

This drawing is inspired by the vision of Betty Boop I saw in my mind when I thought of Taenggu's hairstyle in Holiday Night album. Swipe left to see my reference photos for this drawing! ㅋㅋ You can read the story in my recent post titled "Taenggu In My Mind: Betty Boop Taeng" on my blog. Link in bio. Happy monthsary 탱! @taeyeon_ss 💜💜💜 . #31stmonthsary #august2017 #170829 #bettybooptaeng #bettyboop #taeyeon #태연 #탱구 #caricature #drawing #fanart #monthsaryart #art #love #loveart
After I posted my drawing and shared my story about having a vision of Betty Boop as a visual representation of Taenggu’s hairstyle in real life on instagram, I noticed Taenggu began tying her hair in similar buns more often and sharing more photos of herself in that hairstyle on her own instagram.
I felt like the action of her sporting the same Betty Boop hairstyle more often was a sign that she liked my story and the idea of Betty Boop Taeng very much. In contrary to my previous monthsary drawing #30 MONTHSARY: PINK DOT GIRL, I guess she liked this one more! Kekeke. 😘
Flower for the month:
