A Birch Tree Ballet – A Sneak Preview

A collaboration between myself and Grant Heaps of the National Ballet’s wardrobe. He makes the most incredible quilts! I did an illustration based on a ballet he conceived — he will be spending far more time putting the quilt together than I spent doing the illustration. I think it started over a year ago, and he’s probably got another year or two before this project (one of many he is working on) will be complete. I was in his studio today and had a sneak peak. You can check out more of his brilliance here and here and here.
