I never know when inspiration is going to hit, but I’m very happy when it does. The inspiration for this piece came from my friend Katie Rodgers‘ (PaperFashion) Instagram story a few months back. She had hosted a sketching workshop and asked two ballerinas to model for it. The workshop was in New York. Even though I’m way over here in California, the beauty of the internet made it as though I was there. (Not really… well kinda… ha ha) The pictures from the event were too beautiful not to draw, so I picked up my toned sketch pad and some charcoal, and this sketch of ballerina Cate Hurlin was born. I hope you are having a beautiful Monday. I’m currently a little sick, so laying low today trying to shake it.
