I've always been inspired by classical ballet, it's one of my favourite things. I've been going to see ballets ever since I was eight and I even danced for a while as a hobby. I love listening to ballet music from composers such as Tchaikovsky, Delibes and Adolphe Adam. I'm working on a series of ballet themed illustrations. The first one is of Odile (The Black Swan) from Swan Lake. Below you can see some work in progress photos of the illustration. After this one, I will make an illustration of Odette (The White Swan) to accompany her. I also want to do illustrations of Coppelia, The Nutcracker and Giselle to name a few.
