Eleanor in the land of pink and grey

In Tuesday night's session at The Sussex County Arts Club a packed to capacity (26) crowd, including such eminent luminaries of the illustration world as Geo Parkin, Mark Harrison, Jeremy Radvan and of course, Bill Donohoe our gracious host and perveyor of cool toons to the artisans, tried to capture the lovely likeness of our model for the evening Eleanor. Here are my best scribblings.

Here are my best efforts from the night.

Jas and Kitty

I've had two private sessions with the lovely Jasmine Glover over the last couple of weeks. In the second session we were joined by Jas's friend Kitty, who wanted to try modelling and my friend Alexa who wanted to do some drawing. Both sessions were relaxed and fun affairs and here are my best scribblings from them.

Laura the Finn agin!

Last Tuesday's model at SCAC was  the fabulous Laura everybody's favourite Finn.
She's always great to draw as well as being one of the most confident young women I've ever met
and makes an impressive sight singing and playing her double bass in the bars of Brighton.

Moths!

I went along to last night's Draw session at The Old Market with art titans Mark Harrison and Geo Parkin. Frankie had chosen the theme- Moths! The various bizarre scenarios were modelled by Frankie, Emma, Felix and Charlotte (I think). This monthly session is great fun for newcomers and us old hands too. Come along to the next one!

Anatomy and me

I finally got along top the Worthing Museum and Art Gallery to see the exhibition that of life drawings that I'm part of. It went up on 4th March when I was in Hungary and is on until 29th March. On show is a wide range of styles of drawing by 12 artists in a lovely light and airy space. I managed to coincide my visit with a talk on anatomy by Jeremy Radvan (whose digital depictions of the human body are also in the show). Now there's a man who knows his onions. His talk (with slides) was really fascinating and I finally learned what my favourite part of the female anatomy is called- the sacral dimples!

Double Body Double

Last weekend I was lucky enough to have private drawing sessions with two stunning girls, my good friend Marie and my new friend Jasmine. In both cases I was exploring further the idea of "Body Doubles" or one model in one drawing with two joined poses. It has a psychological angle in that we all have more than one personality and there are at least two sides to us all. A dark and light side to bring it down to polarities. Anyway, that's what I'm endeavouring to indicate in this series of drawings. Deep huh?
