Dancing your own dance

Just as my writing tends to be heavily autobiographical, so does my art. Most characters in my cartoons are inspired by people in my world. This drawing is no exception. 

My dear friend Laura was a dancer once upon a time, and this year she is celebrating a milestone birthday. For her big day, I came up with this cartoon of her dancing in a swirly garden and basking in the sunlight.

It started as a minimalist piece, but in the end I had to go full color. 🙂 

I loved experimenting with swirly borders and practicing people in motion.  I so relish making cartoons of (and for) my friends.


Happy birthday, Laura!
