100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge

This weekend marked the 100th anniversary of the Battle of Vimy Ridge. If I realize how important it is to go back to history books and learn about what this event lead to, the most important is to remember those who left their lives on the battlefield. I drew using a photography as reference called "Assisting the wounded at Vimy Ridge" from the Library and Archives Canada. (As usual, also posting some warm-up gestures from the Croquis Cafe youtube channel.)

Frida Kahlo

I didn't know much about Frida Kahlo before watching the movie "Frida" when it came out.Her art is so colorful and surreal. I also learned a lot about Mexican culture and history through her art and life.

La Belle et la BĂȘte

I had a great time watching the latest Beauty and the Beast movie. It also made me want to watch my favorite version from 1946 by Jean Cocteau. While very theatrical in the acting, it is so eerie and beautiful.  The drawing is inspired by a scene in the 1946 film.
