Today I was a figure model for a freshman foundation drawing class here at the Hartford Art School. I was asked by one of my professors, who also teaches this drawing class, if I would be willing to model one of my more frilly costumes for her students to delineate in the spirit of Halloween. When I told some of my friends and classmates that I would be modeling, they said, “oh you should take a picture.” So I brought in my camera, and some of the students in the class took some really cool photos of me and the space around me which the drawing students worked so hard to construct. Though the dim lighting posed somewhat of a challenge, there were plenty of really good pictures taken, which are posted below. I invite anyone who was in that drawing class, or anyone looking for some interesting reference, to use these pictures for future drawings. I also invite you to admire what a good job I did staying in the exact same position for all of these photos, and for what I hope was most of the drawing session.

About This BlogThis blog was created to chronicle my creative adventures. It is also a spot for me to talk about what I am up to artistically, what inspires me, and what art, culture, or fashion I am compelled to explore at the moment. I try to make posts that contain useful or interesting information, while at the same time, always updating and elaborating on my own works. Post topics will range from theatre to crafting to body-art to beautiful landscapes! Anything that I find visually stimulating or otherwise noteworthy, you can find it here!
