In order to convey that message, I used the classic photo of Marilyn Monroe from The Seven Year Itch over the steam grate. I used Photoshop Quick Selection and converted it to a path to get a really clean silhouette. I masked her with a vector mask and then added a black color overlay. Then I cut out a few defining lines to accentuate the pose.
I used Illustrator to trace a photo of the earbuds, and iPod, and to create the cord. I drew the cord over top of the original Marilyn image so that the split and 2 halves of the cords lined up with the deep V in her dress. Then I imported the iPod and the cord with ear buds into Phoshop as separate smart objects.
