Also to dancer Edward Watson for being nominated for his performance in The Metamorphosis for Outstanding Achievement Award. I was fortunate to draw The Metamorphosis during the rehearsals at the Linbury Studio at the Royal Opera House. It is an extraordinary and beautiful show choreographed by Arthur Pita, and Edward Watson is an extraordinary and beautiful dancer.

Another fantastic dancer is Hip Hop dancer, Tommy Franzen, who I recently drew in rehearsals of Russell Maliphant’s The Rodin Project (and am in the middle of a painting of him dancing in The Rodin Project) he has been nominated in both categories: Outstanding Achievement for his performance in ZooNation’s Some Like It Hip Hop and for his part in the choreography of Some Like it Hip Hop he has been nominated for Best New Dance Production.
