Inspiration: Karel Teissig, Czech Poster design.

Karel Teissig's Poster for
The Beast is Loose,1966

Karel Teissig, Difficult Years, film poster, 1967

Some of the best posters I've seen, fantastic reference for illustration projects.
I read Rick Poyner's post on his design observer blog about Karel Teissig, the proclaimed unknown master of Poster Design
. A worthy title, and well worth a read. There is a great link to, a fantastic resource to see and buy some amazing designs from the Czech Republic and Poland in particular.

Drawings of dance

Please see my range of limited edition screen prints which available for viewing at Artspace Southwell near Nottingham.
These drawings are part of a series of live drawings conveying dancers in action, drawn at Redhill school in Nottingham
during Nottingham Contemporary Dance collective rehersals.

A series of drawings are in development to reflect drawing in action, focussing on the action and act of drawing.
These drawings are all single line drawings, where I have drawn lines that follow the direction and movement of the eyes.
