I Illustrate a Series of Zany, Imaginative and Stylish Ballet Tutu’s

Check this post out on Bored Panda!

Ballet is artistically beautiful and physically taxing and an absolute joy to watch. Like many when I was a tiny tot, I wanted to be a ballerina. Especially for the tulle tutus and sparkly embellishments that came with the job.

Though, this series, focused on whimsical and wild looks that no real ballerina would probably want. 🙁

Oh well.  The inspiration behind theses were different cultures, subcultures and animals. (Like I said, zany.) Granted, most of these aren’t practical but they sure are pretty and fun!

Which do you like the best? My favorites turned out to be No. 5,7,8.

All were painted by hand with gouache paints.

I Create Colorful Fashion Prints to Curb My Fear of Them (Part 1)

As much as I like fashion and all the creativity it entails, I must confess that I have a fear of prints. Call me boring, I tend to almost exclusively wear solids. On purpose. It’s not that I don’t like them, but that they scare me.

But, later I realized, that’s not really fair. So to curb my (stupid) fear
of prints (as well as use up leftover gouache paint), I decided to fill my little 5.5 x 8 in. watercolor sketchbook with 32 mini paintings of these little babies!

This post features designs No. 1 – 11. Here are Designs 12-22 and Designs 23-32.

As it turns out it was fun! I learned that prints are lively, happy and
not scary at all. I have a few favorites. (No. 2, 3,6)  Which are yours?
