Two Minute Poses

More sketches from the same session I posted about below. This time the model posed for two minutes before changing position. These drawings were done at the Monday night figure drawing session at the Brooklyn Artist Gym, held each week from 6:30 to 9:30 pm. The sessions are open the public and only $10 for non BAG members. Stop by if you are interested. More info can be found here: There is also 3 hour long pose session on most Saturdays.


One Minute Poses

Recently I attended a few figure drawing sessions after having not done so in a while. I had forgotten how much fun can be had creating quick sketches while the model rotates through a series of short poses. They are like calisthenics for the hand and eye.


Volcano Illustration for Gordini

Josh Brown and Jeff Rooney operate the Capacitor Design Network, a very rad agency which works out of Burlington VT/Portland OR. They contacted me about illustrating my interpretation of a volcano for a Gordini magazine ad. I was stoked to have the opportunity to draw mountains, yetis, a volcano – stuff thats right in my wheelhouse. It was an interesting challenge incorporating this photo of Banks Gilberti jibbing in Colorado with my illo and ultimately a really fun project to work on. Click on the image for a larger view.
Here’s a good interview with Josh and Jeff from the folks at Josh Spear.
