Well kittens it is that time of the month for the last time this year……no not THAT time, pinup of the month time!

December’s pinup is called ‘Off Pointe’ depicting a burlesque style ballet dancer in the process of getting out of her costume, especially her pointe shoes.

It was originally inspired by Dita Von Teese who trained as a ballet dancer as a child and today often performs En Pointe. Also a bit of the wonderful Cyd Charisse in there too.
I chose her to be pinup for December because this season makes me think of the ballet. Watching the nutcracker with my mother, and putting the little china dancer on the cristmas tree.
For most people this is the only time of the year when they might go to the ballet, or watch it on TV. That is a little sad, I am mildly obsessed with ballet and ballet dancers (as anyone who follows me on pintrest will be aware! http://www.pinterest.com/lillylie/)

Anyway here she is, drawn in pencil and ink with digital finishing.  Click on the link below the picture to see her available as prints, wrapped canvas, posters, postcards and greetings cards. Today is the last day of the cyber Monday offer – buy 2 prints get 1 free.
