Lindy HOP by HeartGear Lindy HOP by HeartGear
A dance society contacted me about using this image for a logo for their group, and they're just so adorable I went ahead and updated the image a bit. You can check out the society here [link] ... IF YOU CAN READ IT. It's Swedish, so I didn't worry about copyright. Just keeping it real in the traditional dance world.

So yeah. Unfortunately, my tablet died while I was working on this... and it might be beyond help. I'm having trouble with the connection, so maybe I can just get a new cable but... I'm just gonna have to get it fixed, or look at investing in a new one.

In the meantime, enjoy the image. ^_^

Hi, I have just found this while looking for a modern image to go on a flyer for our not-for-profit Lindy Hop Community Group in Chester, UK. Your illustration style and colour palette is so great, would you be happy to allow us to use the image to promote our new Lindy classes please, we would be happy to promote your work etc. and may well be able to offer financial support for your art in the future?

We would be ever so grateful!

Kind regards,
Emma Apple

My parents did this as young adults in the '30s and '40s. In its "jitterbug" version, it was THE dance to do to all the swing-based big-band pieces. I learned it as a pre-teen kid in the late '50s, and it was THE dance to do to all swing-based rock-and-roll, until the advent of the West-African-based movement dances of the early-to-mid '60s (jerk, boogaloo, swim, monkey, etc. etc.), which had the effect of making couples-dancing passe--until the rise of disco brought the Lindy back again in the mid-to-late '70s!

You undoubtedly know this, of course, but for those who don't: the Lindy was named for Charles A. Lindberg, the celebrated aviator.

The level of expression from such a simple image is just astounding. If I could put a ring on your art style and marry it, I would.

It would probably divorce me in the end, though. It would demand custody of our freakish drawing-children and my hack lawyer would screw me. It would totally be worth it, though.

Get one of these tablets. It's insane how much better than wacom they are while still being dirt cheap.

Seriously, I got the $15 one and I don't think I'd ever go back to wacom. It's perfect for lines, though I find coloring takes a bit to get used to. Like, you can write legibly and miniscule without zooming in.

Though the stylus requires one AA, I haven't used it long enough to know when it runs out. If I can scrounge up the money I'm going to return it for a larger one. I really love this tablet. XD

Though yeah, if you're stone broke and need one in three days, the blue ones are like 17, 20 bucks with shipping. The texture is not unlike a mouse pad, so that might bother you, but it has 28 hotkeys! XD

Also I really like the colors in this pic, feels nostalgic.

I really loved that comic page. I think this updated image really does looks great! I'd be ecstatic if I were the head of that dance society and I received this xD

Also: This is the second time you've made me want to learn the Lindy Hop, man....THE SECOND. TIME!!
