My blog illustration

This week I asked the really lovely Carly Watts to do an illustration for me for my blog.  I'm so pleased with the results that I thought I'd write a post to introduce it to you.

I've been thinking about asking Carly to do an illustration for me for a while, but I couldn't decide how I wanted it to look.  

I've danced for many years and have had to wear some pretty awful costumes for shows (they always look good on stage from the audience's perspective, but they're not great to have to wear!) but one of my favourite costumes is definitely my Cancan costume.  I've danced twice at The Fantasyland Theatre in Disneyland Paris and on one occasion we did a Cancan (a Cancan in Paris!) and the costumes that were made for us were beautiful.  So I thought I'd go for something a little different and ask Carly to illustrate my Cancan costume.

The orange ruffle is actually red!

Make sure you pop over to Carly's blog and have a look at her other illustrations.  If you'd like Carly to do an illustration for you she charges just £20 for a simple portrait like mine.

What do you think of my new blog picture?
