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. ^_^

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.
