My art class had our holiday party last night and my favorite model posed. She had brought a Santa hat, but people objected because they like her tiny little dreadlocks.

I’m not even going to prendend I did these sketches one day at a time. Hehe. Went to a really inspiring lecture yesterday about Magazine Design, and listen to Art Directors from Real Simple, GQ, Esquire, Wired and W talk, and while they talked I drew them.


This is Niels Bøje Ziegler from Denmark who put together the program of the day, and Eva Spring from Real Simple. 



And this is Anton Loukhnovets from Gentlemen’s Quarterly, who drank an enourmous amount of water (from a Vodka bottle) during his speach. I don’t know how he managed to get it all down. Must have been close to a liter in less than one hour. Impressive. (And so was his work.)



Here we have Scott Dadich from Wired. His speach was one of the best of the day I think. Made me want to go out and buy Wired. 


This is David Cucurito from Esquire. I admit I probably added a few pounds to his actual weight.

He was the most energetic speaker yesterday, and moved around a lot. 



And this is Nathalie Kirsheh from W. She was not moving at all.

I had dinner at my mom’s house yesterday with my brother, my sister-in-law, and their baby, as well as Wendy, who lived upstairs from us and babysat for me when I was a wee tot. She was very into the baby and could not fathom why I am not interested in holding it.


Late start, but at least a start! November 3, 2008

Made two drawings on my way to work today. A good excuse to stop for a nice cup of coffee. Must buy a new sketchbook later today, as the old one only has one page left. As it happens I love to buy art supplies, so I’m not complaining.

I had hoped to keep going with the daily drawing thing, but I have slowed down. Bad artist, bad! But I do, of course, continue to attend my weekly figure drawing class. This week we had a Mardi Gras celebration, listening to blues music from  New Orleans, wearing beads and masks and drawing a model who actually wore a bird-like mask she made herself.
