Ballet to Hip Hop in Charcoal

Beautiful artistic expression, incredible athleticism and intense human passion all combine to make ballet a mesmerizing experience for the observer. I found Hip Hop to have many similarities to Ballet including hand gesturing. This series of drawings in graphite on toned paper aims to capture the movement and passion of both the ballerina and the hip hop dancer.

For the Love of Cats

What is cooler than a cat? I love cats and enjoy drawing them. These sketches are in charcoal pencil on toned paper.
