First life drawing session for 2018! Sketching the beautiful Ferri and Wanda the snake in From Dusk till Dawn Santanico Pandemonium tribute! Very rapid sketches because Wanda kept shifting positions. But a great challenge to shake off the rust.
A week ago to I taught my last Covert Characters Life Drawing class for the year and I couldn’t have asked for a better night! Friends and familiar faces were there and Silhouettê d’Amour was fantastic as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands.
I really enjoyed experimenting with watercolor pencil and water brush at the last life drawing class I attended so I thought I would try some more. I like how quickly I can brush in some shading and darken shadows by drawing over the top.
Drawing from our Mad Hatter’s Tea Party life drawing session at the start of the month. Hamish brings so much energy and character into his posses.
Reminder: This Wed August 30th will be the last class I will be teaching for the year! We have the lovely Silhouettê d’Amour, model and amazing cosplayer, posing as Bishoujo Edward Scissorhands! So join us for an evening of art and fun!
Another great night of life drawing with Covert Characters! Our model John was both the dynamic hero and sophisticated man of mystery. We continue our movie themed classes with a tribute to “The Wild Ones” next Wednesday night. The beautiful Tijana will be playing Marlon Brando with her motorcycle! Yes there will be a motorcycle inside the studio for you to draw 🙂

We started off our June music themed life drawing sessions with a bang! The multi-talented and delightful Hamish treated us to a song and was every bit a rockstar as Ziggy Stardust.
Our music theme continues in our next session on June 21st featuring none other than the King, Elvis Presley! Join us for a hip shaking and fun sketching!
Details can be found on the Covert Characters FB page.
Last life drawing class featuring Tilley and her fantastic Cloud Surrealist costume. The poses and costume made for a dream like atmosphere for us to capture.
If anyone is interested my next class with Covert Characters will be tomorrow night, June 7th. Details about this and upcoming classes can be found on the website.
Seeing Craig, our model, share one of my drawings on Instagram reminded me that I had forgotten to share my sketches from the start of the month!
These sketches are from Covert Character’s Robin Hood themed night. I think there was a great Classical feel to the poses like each one could be a sculpture or figure from an old oil painting.

Last month was crazy! I am just starting to catching up on posts and updates now.
These are sketches from my last life drawing class in April for our Samurai themed session with Chris Masters Mah as our model.
A special thank you to Tristan and Wyman Young for lending us their beautiful wooden katana.
Speaking of updates- I will be hosting Covert Characters Life Drawing tomorrow night May 10th in Fitzroy.
The theme will be Robin Hood. For more details check out the Covert Characters page.
I have four (4) new Mini Baby Groots ready to find new homes. They are the perfect size to decorate a desk or as a cute companion in your spaceship.
Each one is approx. 18cm high (7 inches) inspired by the movie “Guardians of the Galaxy” character Baby Groot.
Made from quality tan fleece with black plastic safety eyes and filled with squeezable soft polyfil stuffing. The leaves and green body stripe/vine are made from light green felt. The white pot base is filled with plastic pellet “beans” to give it weight and stability.
Being handmade there are slight differences between each toy.
All of my plush creations are made with love in a smoke free home.
Each plush is carefully package in a cotton drawstring bag, boxed and sent via Australia Post. Tracking on international postage is available.
Please contact me through my Etsy Shop if you have any questions regarding shipping.
