Life Drawing Session


8" x 8" graphite on paper

Spent a couple hours at a life drawing session across town. This one actually worked out. The rest of the other studies? Meh.

Roadwork is to the miler what life drawing is to the visual artist; a good workout that promotes stamina and hones technique.

As a Judo sensei once told me, very once in awhile, one has to go back to the basics - conditioning is also important.


"Every" - as in "every once in awhile". Damn! I need to pay more attention to my editing.


No kidding that one worked out! Very impressive, John. From the hands to the ears, it all comes together beautifully.

And on another note, hubba. And might I add, hubba.

John Cox:

Hey Z

I believe a distinct amount of hubba is in order when drawing the figure. Otherwise, it might as well be an umbrella stand.


I've been going to the Apache Cafe on Monday nights. Would love to see you there and draw with you sometime.

John Cox:

Hey Doug

Let's do this.
