Life Drawing

Last week I attended another life drawing session at the Society of Illustrators here in New York city. It's a great event, held twice weekly, featuring two models, a bar, snacks, live music, and great socialization (not to mention the practice).

Anyway, the models were very cool this time- very different builds and looks, different pose styles, and they were wearing great vaudevillian clown costumes. It was a neat opportunity to draw clothing, folds, and interesting shapes. It also inspired a new style of poses for them, which made it interesting for the artists. There were also some great new faces to draw at the event.

If you're in or near New York, you should
drop by on a Tuesday or a Thursday. The Society is on East 63rd St. near Lexington Avenue, and I'd love to see you there.

You can also take a peek at my friend Arkady's "Nude of the Day" blog. He moderates the life drawing session and his impressionistic renderings are incredibly inspiring to see in-person!

I'll share some more of these sketches next week. Oh, and I've got some great news coming up on Friday morning, so check back!

One thing I miss the most about leaving NY is the nites sketching at Society and also at Spring Street. Great work you are doing. I hope I have some extra cash to pick up your book soon.

Hah, no way! I had to do a double take on the vaudevillian drawings. That woman model's here at Pratt as well. She's great!
