“Drawing as Dancing”
at Cat’s Corner SF
Thank you, Nathan Dias, for inviting me to share a little live digital drawing demo on the online version of Cat’s Corner SF, a weekly Lindy Hop dance event featuring dance classes, socializing and live music.
In this demo I share the parallels I experience between drawing and dancing. I started with a sketch based on a clip of Lindy Hop legends Norma Miller and Frankie Manning social dancing in the 1980s and then I did a quick sketch of the featured band, Nick Rossi and His Swing Four, as they played live from Mr. Tipple’s. Both artworks are shown below as well as in the video above. Enjoy!
My artworks are available on ArtMasks and as prints.

That process was so interesting to watch! I love the resulting images. I am a dancer (not an artist) and so miss the connections we make when dancing. Hope I can get up to SF some day when the world is in a better place.
