Illustration Friday theme: Deja Vu
An exercise in drawing two shapes as identical as possible, but one an upside-down & mirrored version of the other. I worked on both simultaneously, without allowing myself to rotate the page to help. Given my style of free-flowing embellishment, each time I grew one shape I had to try to do the same as possible for the other. Drawn in the orientation of the first image.

  1. Does look like they are dancing together. Very graceful.

  2. Beautiful line work! Makes me want to draw like this more often.
