Yesterday I watched Bertrand Normand's mesmerizing documentary, Ballerina. It follows a handful of Russian ballerina's through different parts of their career. They are so incredibly graceful and their devotion to their art inspires every nerve in my body. These girls dedicate their lives (almost every waking hour!) and their bodies in order to create some of the worlds finest dances.

I find myself incredibly drawn to that concept of absolute dedication to an art. To focus my entire being towards creating something incredibly beautiful to share with others.

  1. Thanks for your comment on my blog. I’m determined not to forget about the ignorance I’ve been shown by some employers so I don’t become a hypocrite.

    I saw a similar documentary (maybe the same one) as this. Some people are lucky enough to fit right into their life. I’d love to see some of your own work if you’re willing to post it anyway. The Illustrator drawing over the flowers looked interesting.
