Any illustration for the Royal Opera House team is a delight. This one for the Royal Ballet, working on the classic tale of Romeo and Juliet, was no exception.
My brief was to capture the essence of the 4 main characters from this Tchaikovsky ballet in gesture, demeanour and stance. What nicer thing to do than to study these remarkable dancers and to reacquaint myself with such a tremendous story.
