Dance Card

This is a card I drew for my friend Kayla, for her going away party. She is leaving Michigan to attend college in Washington, quite a distance. Kayla is a graceful and highly coordinated dancer, so playing on the idea of Dance seemed like a good direction to pursue.

I had heard mention the day prior to the party that someone was going to go out and buy a card, so I opened my big mouth and said I could draw one. So, much like my Father's Day card, I had to work feverishly to get it completed in a matter of hours to at least be presentable.

Also like my Father's Day card, I haven't gotten over this streaming stars pattern. Maybe its a sign I have a potential career working with Paramount Pictures.

Given how I frequently post illustrations related to a weekly theme, I thought I'd take some time, to share some of the images that helped inspire this particular illustration of my own.

Edwin Blashfield

Franklin Booth

Cesar Phillip Allegoria

Frank Frazetta

Alphonse Mucha

I'll have a colored version up sometime when I haven't been up all night.
