A few weeks ago I posted a vector illustration of ABT principal dancer and one of my favorite ballerinas Julie Kent. I haven’t done vector illustrations in a while and wanted to try it again. Plus, I was really keen to try out a new blending technique I recently discovered. This is the most ambitious composition I’ve ever attempted and I’m quite happy with the results.

Diana Vishneva

My introduction to ballet began 2 years ago, and I discovered Diana fairly early on in that process. That’s hardly surprising since Diana – a graduate of Vaganova Academy, prima ballerina at the Mariinsky Theatre and principal dancer with American Ballet Theatre – is one of the most prominent artists working today. She is virtually everywhere, dancing across all borders and pushing ballet (both classical and modern) into the public conscience.
