James Bond 007 Themed Life Drawing Night

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 🙂

Watch My OZ Comic-Con Workshop on Twitch

I had a great time at Oz Comic-Con this weekend! Thank you to everyone that came by my table and supported me with your kind words and purchases.

Like every event I could not make it through without my wonderful helpers and friends <3 I am especially grateful to my sister and Ben for coming to help on Sunday when I did my first ever workshop.  That is a photo of me doing last minute revision and notes for my presentation looking deceptively calm.

If you are interested in seeing my workshop the video is available to watch on Twitch through the link below:

Ziggy Stardust Themed Life Drawing

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.


Robin Hood Themed Life Drawing Session

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.

More information about my up coming life drawing classes can be found on the Covert Characters Facebook page>

As part of Free Comic Book Day, All Star Comics Melbourne has an Artist Alley where local artist do free sketches to raise money for the charity, Beyond Blue.

This was my second year participating and this year we set up the camera to record the afternoons sketching.

“Little Boy with Headphones” is probably my favourite drawing of the day. You can see through out the video the boy’s hand pointing at the photo of himself on the phone.
