Hurricane Ike

I'm hoping to get some art posted once power is returned, probably this weekend. I plan on adding a prompt from Ike to the Life Drawing Session tomorrow, if we have it. More on this later. To anyone that was affected by this storm, I hope you are doing well.

Son of Tron

Well I know that this is an Art Blog, but it's also the only blog I really have now. So here's something sort of art related. Cosmic Bowling.

We went out last night to the local bowling alley. I'm glad I don't have seizures, but at first it was a little tricky aiming with the lights dancing on the floor. Still I almost broke 100, haha. Oh yes, the art part. With the black lights on, I loved the way the bowling shoes looked. It reminded me of Tron. I intend to do something artistic with this. Just you wait.

Wednesday Life Drawing Sessions

Well, this last week was the first Wednesday Evening Life Drawing session that I've run. It was a lot of fun, and I hope that next time even more people show up. I took off the whole day from work to get ready for it, (not knowing exactly what to expect). As a consequence I got to attend the daytime life drawing. There was not a model, so us artists had to take turns modeling. Unfortunately, I was not able to sketch myself as a model, but here's what I did get.

These were the tree sketches I did get. I wish I had something more than my moleskine, but it was fun. I tell you, my 20 minute pose definately helped me empathize with my models. I promise nothing longer than a 20 minute pose.

Here is the model from the evening session that I ran, and the final drawing I ended up with.

And I want to give a special thanks to Cory Todd for modeling for us. He did a great job.
