A Break from Ape: The Girls



This past weekend I was fortunate enough to get to see Spring Awakening for a second time. I saw the show in NYC just after Christmas this year with most of the original cast, and fell head-over-heels in love with it. I must confess, I am a musical theater geek, but this show is different from anything else I have ever seen. It is gritty and honest and beautiful and if you ever have a chance to see it, please do. The national tour of Spring Awakening will be in San Francisco for another week, so if you are in the area please go see it! The only warning I have is that there is a lot of mature content, so you may not want to take young children (or your mom - a painful mistake I have already made once) to see it.

Feeling a bit overwhelmed with APE things and other projects that I should be working on, I decided to take a break and let this sketch out of my head. This is the original cast of girls from Spring Awakening singing "Mama Who Bore Me." Way back when, I had a quite a hard time deciding what my major in college would be. It was a toss-up between musical theater and animation, and animation ultimately won out because it had been my first love, because I thought it would be easier to "make it" in the animation world (hahaha), and because I knew that a career in animation would allow me to both perform and draw. I'm confident I made the right decision, but this show in particular made me miss being on stage. Since I can't be up there with them, I guess the next best thing I can do is draw them. And for all of you IFers out there, this sketched is "packed" with ridiculously talented young women.

Enjoy, and we will return next week with our regularly scheduled APE-in-progress programming :)

I'm not sure how this relates to 'packed,' but that's probably just my ignorance. Any way you look at it, this illustration is just amazing!! I have no idea how to use illustrator, but you got it down, nice.

I'm so glad you did this one! Apparently my coworker is friends with Duncan Sheik and did five years in off-Broadway musical theatre. Color me jealous.

ok Brittney.. so I decided to stop being such a creepy stalker and actually comment on something...

Though I've never seen Spring Awakening I LOVE the music from it, I was first introduced to it last year when I went to a show in which they sang "Touch Me" I was like, oh my gosh! That was the most beautifully strange and haunting song EVER!!!

So yeah, I really hope to be able to get a chance to see it on Broadway one of these days, William's brother lives near NYC so we've been going pretty frequently. I'm going to start pushing for us to a show!

alright! I was so happy to see you this weekend! I miss you already!

Peace!
