Zombie Jesus Day! Burlesque Poster

I was asked to design a poster for Pink Kitten Dance School’s student cabaret this Easter; I was inspired by an image from their ‘March’ image in the Pink Kitten calendar and worked from there.  I wanted it to be tongue in cheek and fun to look at, hence Zombie Jesus Day!  but I got cold feet and made a differently titled one for the final.  Although I’d be interested to hear if you have a preference title-wise….

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

I like bright pink and teal but after discussing it with a colleague at the dance school, I changed the colour palette and I think it does work better for the Easter theme.  So below you can find the final version, with all the tweaks.

 

I’m biased, as I work for the company and that I perform in their showcases, but they are a blast for an evening’s entertainment, you should come along!

 

Life Drawing with Christmas Glitz

After a good while of not putting pen to paper with a life model in the room, I thought it would be a grand idea to flex the ol’ life drawing skills at a one off (or every few months anyway) burlesque life drawing evening at Bristol Folk House.  The models Delilah Di Sgrace and Ally Katte were in their Christmassy finery creating both  interesting and festive poses.  I did particularly like the one where Delilah Di Sgrace rolled up onto her shoulders, fair play to her holding that for 10 minutes!  The following are some of the images that came from my work of the night, more will be uploaded as I have opportunity to get them up.  Click an image for a closer look!
