Checked out a painting workshop with Shawn Barber today. Google him. He's very good and a real nice guy.

Gallery Girls Drawing Salon

I finally had a chance to hit up one of the Gallery Girls drawing salons. I highly recommend them - they were great models. Great atmosphere, too. Drinks and a DJ. This is how figure drawing was meant to be... Fun!

Sean Galloway was drawing caricatures of everyone at Drink and Draw. The man is good. I drew one of him. He drew one of me. All is good in the world.

Saw Rod "Do you think I'm sexy" Stewart in Beverly Hills the other day. He was eating a couple of tables away from me on Rodeo Drive. LA is kind of cool sometimes.

I know the likeness is a little lacking but the man HAS filled out a bit. He still rocks the hair, though!

I've been doing quite a bit of life drawing lately. It's been an effort to improve my fundamentals and also get out of the house AND the office so I can hang out with other artists. I really feel like I'm improving and also getting some much needed social nourishment down here in Southern California. Being an artist can be a pretty isolating endeavor sometimes, especially when you've relocated from another city. Even though I work in a studio with other artists I feel the need to step out of that world sometimes and meet with artists from different industries - just be creative in a new environment, get new perspectives on art, etc. I can't recommend it enough.

With the internet, art related web forums, and social networking sites, it's pretty easy to find life drawing and sketch meetups in your area. Find some for yourself and sharpen those pencils. You'll improve your skills and meet some cool people. Keep facebook browsing to a minimum, though. That site is detrimental if you're not careful in how you use it. Before you know it you'll get sucked into Farmville or endlessly browsing old friend's photos. Not good.

Dr Sketchy's LA

I finally went to the LA chapter of Dr. Sketchy's and it kicked major ass. The venue was the California Institute of Abnormal Arts - the perfect spot for a gig like this. The host was awesome and so were the models. I've never had this much fun figure drawing and I highly recommend you hit up a Dr Sketchy's chapter in your area.
