New acrobat drawing


I took a well needed pause in my editing of the Million year Picnic documentary while i was waiting for feedback from the rough cut and did a new drawing. I didn't get as many reference photos as I would have liked during the MTL Complement Cirque festival but enough to keep me bust a few months and add more to my growing acrobat project I have been working on the past few years. I think working on the documentary is pushing me towards a more simplified black and white style. Simplified for me anyway.

Sorry I missed this one. Nice piece! Lots of drama because the trapeze is left out. It is a simple style but effective. Hope you get more time to draw soon, when you're back from Vermont.

He was doing a back flip from the ground believe it or not! One of the things I love about these acrobat images is how weird and extreme their poses look and how contorted they can be. I am back from Vermont since yesterday and I do hope to get a new drawing started before I do two days at the hotel this week, then I'll be visiting my family for a yearly event. I really just want to be home home drawing.

I was just thinking... I should try and get some trapeze artists somewhere...the idea of drawing them without the trapeze might looks really interesting...
