had a male model for life drawing today - he was so lean and tall that he put me in mind of a spider with long, long legs. 

I definitely work better with pen - these drawings are all done in biro, then I outline the shaded areas and fill the shadows in with pencil. they’re also all “one line” drawings - I do the whole drawing without taking the pen off the paper. you can see all the lines across the drawing where I’ve moved my pen to a different section. 

drawn at the groupon life drawing event in Sydney. it was a charity event to raise money for prostate cancer research - there were three male models, all volunteer life guards from Bondi beach. it was funny, to start off with only one of the men was posing in the nude, and got a fair bit of ribbing for it, but by the end of the session another guy had dropped his trunks and the last guy who stubbornly refused to go nude was getting the mickey taken out of him!
