Drawing dancers from the net

Below are some drawings from 2018. I wanted to draw the movement of a dancer, but not having a chance to draw a real dancer in a studio I resorted to drawing from videos on the internet.

I tried to capture the flow and energy of the movement whilst also capturing the form of the body through quick gestural marks.

I also made some more drawings I made around the city which I posted on chrisfraserart.com

Mind the Gap

Mind the Gap

Everything is fine. There is no cause for alarm. Please move along steadily. Mind the gap. Enjoy your journey. Move away from the closing doors. Remember to smile. Chin-up. Keep on keeping on.

Shop till you drop

A quick reminder about my little society6 shop where you can currently buy prints of my illustration work. I haven’t managed to put any of my fine art work up there yet, but hopefully that’s coming soon.

There’s not much profit to be made on society6 unless I sell hundreds of thousands of prints (which is unlikely!), so any meagre profit I might make can go towards my monthly donation to the WWF in Finland. Anything leftover will be spent on rum. And toilet paper.
