Sketch

Postnova Stanislava – Ballerina Study

It’s funny how the littlest things remind me of being a kid. Making this video I couldn’t help but be reminded of that childhood feeling from when you first get to play with new toys that you just opened up on Christmas morning.

Instead of toys this year, my amazing family helped me out with art supplies that I needed and this was my first drawing getting to break them in. Postnova Stanislava (aka Ruby.Tear) is the Russian ballerina that inspired these sketches. If you have followed my work, for a period of time, I’m sure you have noticed a pattern that I fall into. Where someone Inspires me, I tend to draw them lot… I don’t know what causes it or why it happens. Such is life. I say all of this just to warn you this isn’t my last time drawing Postnova. 😉

The music in the video is by one my favorite singer / songwriters Lydia Cole. The honesty and purity of her voice blows me away every time I hear it. Her music is on repeat playing in the background when I’m drawing. Please check her out she is an incredible human being.

For those who have helped support me on Patreon over the last few months, I am forever grateful. Thank you! 🙏
