"Contained"


I did this piece for a friend of mine who was once stuck in a job position that she did'nt quite like and was quite unfit for. She was an aspiring dancer, stuck in a dead-end office job.  I remember her telling me the way she felt and in response I did this piece for her. This was a few years ago, and she's now becoming a popular burlesque dancer and model here in Los Angeles.  Good for her.

Smashing drawing, great story.

At least the story has a happy ending: I feel rather sad looking at the poor cheetah.
