Thursday was World Ballet Day, and I couldn’t help but reminisce on Sutton Foster’s role as Vegas show-girl turned ballet teacher Michelle Simms in the ABC Family television show Bunheads. She taught her mother-in-law Madame Fanny’s ballet school alums on the series, and even though it’s been over a year since the show got cancelled I still miss her character.
If I were ever subjected to learning ballet I’d beg Michelle to teach me. Her jokes and sarcasm would make the experience worth while.
Therefore, in honor of yesterday’s World Ballet Day, I present to you this fine color-pencil drawing of Sutton Foster from Deviant Art. I just love how the earrings bring out her soft features, even more so than a real photograph of her at the Tony Awards in 2011. The eyelashes are very well drawn too!
