Frank Duval has made over 10,000 sketches of LPGA Golfers, Dancers and Jazz Musicians since 1983. “I want to understand how a one-hundred-pound woman can whack a golf ball farther than I can see… how a bunch of musicians who haven’t rehearsed a lick can make their unique blend of America’s music flow for hours and hours … how, under the direction of a choreographer like Donna Grim, a gaggle of teenagers can accomplish impossible feats of individual athletics and synchronized artistry. The answer lies in good work habits: focus, discipline, persistence, commitment, and a willingness to work at the stuff that isn’t fun. My goal is to reveal those qualities through a bunch of lines on paper.”
