Vorticist drawings

Vorticism is the Brit's answer to modernism during World War I.  The show The Vorticists: Manifesto for a Modern World I saw at Tate Britain this past summer is both educational and inspirational.  Works by vorticist pioneers shown at the exhibition are full of futurist dynamism characteristic of this short-lived movement.  Since photography was not allowed at the exhibition, I had to do some quick sketches on site.
