Some of my recent work: drawing, painting, and photo

About a month ago I did a photo shoot with a modern dancer friend of mine. She was kind enough to let me wrap string around all of her joints and take her portrait as reference for the drawing and painting above.

I’m lucky to have friends like her. Thankfully she won’t ask me to return the favor like back in art school when the subject of your work all of a sudden comes a calling wanting you to run half naked through the snow in the dead of winter for their film final.

I prefer the view from behind the camera, canvas, and paper. It can be fun to be the subject once in a while, though I prefer something a little less explicit than my aforementioned (if slightly exaggerated) anecdote.

    Thank you so much Nadine. I was not sure about it at first. I might have put the man in the wrong place or made him too big or too small. I’m glad you like it!! Thanks for the feedback and keep posting on anmutig!

    Very cool. Is the friend a puppet of the establishment?
