Figure drawing

Not my best morning, but such is life. This model is an older lady (I didn't ask...) but in pretty good shape for whatever age she happens to be. Otherwise, still fumbling around with the pastels. I'm gonna have a breakthrough soon. I can feel it.

Oh yes, there were these 2 hens sitting at the table next to mine today. They were chatting away about the kids' exams and how crazy some of the exam schedules are cos little Robbie, who's grown up sooo much by the way, has to write two subjects on the same day! Then the drawing started and it was otherwise quiet and now I was trying to concentrate on what I came there to do - draw the naked ape in front of me - and still it flowed, this painful dribbling outlet of small talk, like cold coffee being slowly dispensed upon my forehead. I hollered SHUT THE FUCK UP! Well, in mind I did. When I did politely ask them to snap it, they snapped it. But it was awkward. I felt the glares.

3min mofos: was off to a good start

Supposedly 30 min but I'm certain they call it early. Fuckers.

The last drawing got cut short and I really didn't finish. Bummer, 10 more minutes woulda made all the difference. And less glaring.


Musical masturbation

Another RAW Sessions with Sony Ericsson character identity. A couple more coming at some point...


Thursday... figures.

Still plugging away at the pastels... feisty motherfuckers.

3 min each:

25 minutes each:

A little heavy on the texture...

And again...

Nothing the smudging of loo paper wont' fix...

Had to leave early again. Back to the dontist. *cringe*


Figure drawing

See what happens when you skip a week? All goes to shit... Still messing around with my grand weakness: colour.

All crops of pastel on A2 Canson paper, 20-30 minutes each. The quickies just weren't up to standard this week.

Ziza and the Solo's played our first live show last night at Tanz Cafe. It was awesome. I'm still feeling buzzed.


Music to your eyes...

I've been under the influence of music quite a bit lately. This is my first attempt to visualise it. Hope it's not completely wrong. Looks pretty either way :)


Ziza & The Solos live at Tanz next Wed...

Yip, that's me on the bass... my hands are already sweating.
