Did you know that today is the International Dance Day?

Out of the studio, I was drawing on my sketchbook at Las Canteras which is the biggest city beach in Las Palmas de Gran Canaria. It was a cloudy day, around 8:00 pm. So,  there were a few people only on the beach. The building at the end of the beach is  Alfredo Kraus Auditorium. A wonderful concert hall has a glass window behind the stage, so you are listening the concert and facing to the sea view. We see International music festivals and concerts there.

Did you know that today is the International Dance Day? What about a little dance break with David Bowie's hit pop song from the 80's; "Let's dance"? Play the song below in the Itunes box and put on your red shoes :) How powerful and wonderful his voice isn't it? We'll miss him... This should be the "must have album" on your playlist.

I am bringing back an ink drawing illustration from "The Lead Girl" series which represents my mysteriously happy feelings in the mid 90', Istanbul. These are total of 9 illustrations. "Dance" is one of my favorite drawing in this series. I hope you enjoy it too :) Have a great weekend!
