Twist



Come on baby, let's do the TWIST!

Pencil sketch, colored in Photoshop. This one's a late entry this week. I was experimenting with the background again on this piece. Is she dancing in space? Or maybe just lost in her own world as she dances away with this Chubby Checker hit. I just love these 50's/60's songs. Simple, catchy tunes and just a lot of fun. Sometimes at friends/family gatherings, we have hoola hoop and limbo contests and play a bunch of Chubby Checker hits.

Cute! I'd say the background is like one of those superimposed backgrounds from a dance show! Fun!

She looks like she’s have such a great time, a twistin’ and a turnin’, in her bright and starry world :)
