Smoke Rings by Rob Tarbell

"The performing animal images in the Smokes parallel the drawing process. The trainer must recognize and respect the innate nature of an animal when trying to modify its behavior to achieve a desired outcome: e.g. training a bear to dance or training a horse to walk upright. The same is true in working with smoke. The inherent properties of smoke must be respected, then permitted to - and yet discouraged from - acting naturally."

I'm obsessed with smoke art, so when I came across Rob Tarbell's beautiful circus-inspired work, I immediately became a big fan.
 Take a looksie at some of his other work over here.
