As an artist, the internet can bombard you with link after link of gorgeous art. From comics to CG concept painting and modeling to animation, there’s just so much amazing work out there it’s impossible to post everything I see that strikes a chord. This animated short by animator Ryan Woodward however, is technically beautiful, emotionally powerful, and inspirational in every meaning of the word.

I need to draw more.

Look familiar? That’s because Woodward is responsible for a recent Google Doodle in commemoration of legendary dance choreographer, Martha Graham. It premiered on on May 11, 2011.

If you’re as mesmerized as I am, there is also a short documentary about the making of Thought Of You which you will likely enjoy.

Still haven’t had enough? Check out for more gorgeous gesture drawing.

Thanks to my friend Jared MacPhee for sharing this!
