Beatriz Morales

I am inspired by flamenco and turn to it in my sketchbook and my personal practice.

Beatriz Morales is a flamenco dancer and teacher in Sevilla, Spain. Her specialty is Bulerías, the liveliest form of flamenco dance, which also happens to be my favorite palo.

I created this animation the old fashioned way, with a pencil, tracing paper, and a lightbox. I scanned in about 30 frames, and colored them digitally to create this short piece. I love the imperfect, handmade look inherent to this style of animation.
