A Brief Synopsis of My Ballet Adventures


In retrospect, this is solid evidence that I'm cray.


Ah — those important beginner steps: "temps du Squid," "port de bro," and my personal favorite, the timeless "Dead Swan."


True Story.


It's (ahem) *hip* to be *square,* boy-o.


It's a good idea to get all those pesky injuries and illnesses out of the way at one time.


If I'd realized I wanted to draw renversé, here, before I started, it might have worked better.


I didn't have the chutzpah to try to draw nine dancers dancer-ing on this tiny little tablet. Also: Dear Planet Earth, I'm sorry. I tried really hard.

Created on my Samsung Galaxy Note 8.0 tablet using Samsung’s S-Note app,because I’m too cheap to pay for a second INKredible license.

About asher

Me in a nutshell: Standard uptight ballet boy. Trapeze junkie. Half-baked choreographer. Budding researcher. Transit cyclist. Terrible homemaker. Neuro-atypical. Fabulous. Married to a very patient man. Bachelor of Science in Psychology (2015). Proto-foodie, but lazy about it. Cat owner ... or, should I say, cat own-ee? ... dog lover. Equestrian.

  1. It’s beautiful and so are you.

    • Thank you! Oddly enough, totally an inspiration of being somewhat manic, I suspect, heh. The paranoia level seems to finally be diminishing, though.

    • Oh, one more thing — I keep meaning to thank you. Your self-portrait project really got my visual art engine turning over again. It was like it pulled the stopper out of the bottle that had all my visual artistic urges jammed inside.

      So, thank you, thank you, thank you for that as well.

  2. Love your sketches!! So beautiful!
