Hopper House drawing, 3-26-09

Neither rain nor sleet stopped our session at Hopper House last night. Our model was great to draw, using props well.
Should you ever find yourself in Nyack on a Thursday night, come join us at the Hopper House from 7:30-10 pm.

Drawing at the Hopper House, 3/19/09

More figure drawing- from warming up to longer poses, with model Jean Sapione. She is perfect for Hopper House; looks like she walked out of and Edward Hopper painting. I really enjoy facilitating these sessions; it gets me there and drawing. I'm always working alone in my studio, and it can be a bit empty- it's good for the soul to be among other creatives.

Women in the military

I just finished this project, about an insider's view on serving in the military as a female, far outnumbered by males. As an illustration project, the goal was to show that this can be a lonely position, isolating, sometimes feeling 'out of place' and convey that without implying too much. Great art direction helped- a shout-out to Eson Chan.
