Body of Work

My drawing of prima ballerina, Julie Kent has been posted at VanityFair.com with a wonderful article by Elise Taylor in honor of Kent's final performance and retirement from American Ballet Theatre tonight. The drawing features every ballet Kent danced during her long career at ABT. You can see the finished drawing and the piece here. Below are some process photos, including my pencil drawing which used Roy Round's iconic photograph as a reference. Once the pencil drawing was finished and placed on the lightbox, it was straight to ink with the list of her 100 ballets slowly being crossed of one by one until the work was done . . .
