Drawing 8 of 365

“Let us read, and let us dance; these two amusements will never do any harm to the world.” ― Voltaire

Dancing beatniks with their favourite books. This is a bit of a cheat as I actually started work on this ages ago – inspired by that great dance scene of Audrey Hepburn’s from the film Funny Face. But I finished it today and I think I will be popping it up on Society6 in the next few days – I hope. Or etsy. I can’t decide. Let me know if you are interested and I’ll keep you posted. There will also be a version with the Voltaire quote for those who like quotes.

Day 8! Bam! xx

    I am interested. Looking for art for my daughters’ room redos. One is 11, and the other 8. I think this would be an awesome addition but not sure for which one . . . Hard for me to find pieces I like that are not to juvenile but still have kid energy. Bought on etsy before but not the other site.

    I love this drawing. But I recently had back surgery, and all I can think when I look at it is: They’re going to herniate their discs with that posture!
