An incredibly late model update and an artistic challenge!

Whoops! Really sorry about the tardiness of this post, it’s been a hectic weekend.
Tomorrow night (the 15th), we’ll be having a double session with Lucy and Sarah.
And the artistic challenge: for the last few years I’ve been organising the Perth chapter of the annual 24 Hour Comics Day challenge. And I’m doing so again this year from October 4-5th here at UWA (had to relocate this year due to renovations at the Film & Television Institute where we normally have it. The rules are simple; participants have to complete a 24 page comic in 24 hours using the title supplied to them (this year’s theme is Storybook Edition). If you’re interested in knowing more visit everyone!

An evening with Alistair, in pictures!

The musical accompaniment for the evening were the likes of Arcade Fire, The Avett Brothers, and… another  group I cannot remember at the moment. No pictures with Chloe this week, but there will be more next week.

We haven’t had some in awhile, so here are some from the session last week with Xiu Lei. Musical theme were The Seatbelts and Enigma.

Cancellation and some other info. Plus pictures!

Hello all. It was brought to my attention on Monday that next Monday (the 4th), is a holiday (Foundation Day or some such thing). As such, there will not be a session that night after all. Which works out well as jasmine was going to have to cancel as it was. We’ll be back on the 11th with Anita.


In other news, one of our regular drawers, George, is going to be in an art show (along with quite a few other artists) titled Looking Through Windows – Personal Journeys Through Australia. It opens this coming Friday at 6pm and will be at 464 Smart Space (464A William Street). Official bookface-thing is here.


We had a great session with David as our model. Pictures are below and the musical themes for the evening were The Beatles and Arcade Fire.

We’ve had some great showings the last two weeks (including a massive 17 people on the 14th, we were a little full I must say). On the 14th we had in Chloe and on the 21st we had Kieran (after a last minute change as the booked model was unable to make it in). Musical themes for the evenings were The Doors with Led Zeppelin and The Rolling Stones with David Bowie.

A big old catch up

Hello all, so I have four (!) weeks worth of images to catch up on. Over the last four weeks we’ve had in Kieran (who was accompanied by the the soothing sounds of Huey Lewis and the News), Nin (complete with battle damage from a bike mishap), Jane (who came in with a sword, spear and shield) and Sophie (who managed to give us a great turnout even though the weather was terrible last Monday).
This week (the 14th), we have a new model (well, for us as we’ve never had her in before) by the name of Chloe.

Plenty of pretty pictures

We had a great last couple of weeks having Ron and Jasmine in.

With Ron we had the musical accompaniment of Led Zeppelin, The Raconteurs and Metronomy. For Jasmine we had Sneaker Pimps, Pivot and Radiohead. Images from the sessions are below.

When we’re back on the 12th, we’ll be having a new model in for our session by the name of Brooke, and on the 26th we’ll be having Kieran.

The ball has begun rolling

Hello all, we’ve had a great first two sessions to the year. On the 30th we had Victoria in (with a short, curly and ginger hairstyle no less) and she was accompanied by Ladytron, M83 and Metronomy. Andrew was our model on the 6th and he was accompanied by Alice Cooper and The Cure.

Next week we’ll be back in our regular room, and we’ll have a new model by the name of Brooke being our model for the evening. The following week well be having Ron in.

By the way, there will be no session on March 6th as it is a Holiday, nor will there be one on March 19th due to outside commitments.

Goodbye 2011

We had a smaller turnout for our last session of the year, but that worked out quite fine. The wine, cheeses and dip made the smaller group quite fun. Our theme for the evening was Pink Floyd and Led Zepplin.

We’ll be back in 2012 on Jan 30th.

For those interested in other life drawing sessions, I recommend checking out some of the other sessions before going in. Most of them will be taking a break at this time of the year. On the other hand, Dr. Sketchy’s tends to have even more during the summer on different days, so I recommend checking out there site to stay on top of that.

Happy holidays everyone.

A catch up

We’ve had a great last couple of sessions with Mark in on Nov 30th and Yollie in on the 5th. Musical themes have been along the lines of Beck, Arcade Fire and Garbage (also gave White Zombie a try but it didn’t quite work). We have one more session for the year on the 12th, and Kieran will be our model for the night.
