dance


hi all, after a week off from illo friday, i'm glad to be participating this week! i am a huge fan of dance, and locally see the 'garth fagan dance' group in rochester, ny whenever i can. this image came from a book called 'breaking bounds-the dance photography of lois greenfield' (my copy is practically in tatters from looking at it so much!). you can, and should!, check out her website, it is incredible: www.loisgreenfield.com . so, anyway, i drew the picture from one of her photos, and then stylized it a bit and added my background. hope you like it!

It's beautiful Leigh, they look like they are actually flowing to the music. A lot of grace.

Thanks for your comments, I hope you had a great time in Ireland, no one can do weddings like the Irish! (I bet there were a few legless people by the end of it)

The linework is amazingly strong and lively. Looking forward to what you do with "rain".
