Mad Hatter’s Tea Party Life Drawing

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!

 


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing with Agent Cleave and Dandrogyny!

Every Dr Sketchy’s event is wonderful and totally unlike any other drawing class. I tried to explain it to my friends as “Burlesque-like Performance Art Event with Audience Participation and Some Drawing”! Its more important that everyone is having a good time experiencing art and making art than studying form and improving technique.

The last session was truly incredible and fun in the unique way only Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne art parties can be! Thank you Mel, Agent Cleave and Dandrogyny for an amazing night  🙂


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 🙂

Details and tickets can be found here>


Elvis Themed Life Drawing!

This class was so much fun! My friend The Knave is incredible as Elvis! He brought great tunes and a great rock n roll attitude 🙂

I’m teaching my next life drawing class is on July 5th with a James Bond theme! More details coming soon on the Covert Characters page.


Dr Sketchy’s Life Drawing featuring Zelia Rose

I had a great night 2 weeks ago sketching and catching up with friends at the always fabulous Dr Sketchy’s Melbourne!

Zelia Rose is stunning, her costumes (made by her) were beautiful and so rich in detail. I did my best to capture her grace and glowing smile.

 


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.


Surrealist Cloud Themed Life Drawing

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. 


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.

April Samurai Themed Life Drawing

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.

 


Teaching Life Drawing Class March 8th Covert Characters

 

I will be hosting the “80’s Rock Queen” themed life drawing session at Covert Characters this Weds night, March 8th, at Workshop in Fitzroy. I will be speaking a bit about proportion and drawing while observing the figure at the start of the class and answer any questions and providing more tips during the mid point break.

Covert Characters is a great class for anyone new to life drawing or artist wanting to join a causal friendly group to enjoy sketching.

I will be teaching more classes this year and hope to announce them more in advance in the future. Be sure to follow the Covert Character’s Facebook page to keep updated on up coming events 🙂
