Rockville, MD

Location: Rockville, Maryland, USA
Visited: January 2012

A friend invited me to this amazing 12-hour life drawing session at VisArts in Rockville, MD. There were six models, but I only got one of their cards. That's all right. I don't usually include my own art in my gluebooks, but since this was actually a drawing event, it seemed appropriate. This is one of my 5-minute sketches that turned out looking more human than alien (unlike most of the others). Looks like the white sketchpad paper against the yellowish journal page caused the scanner to freak out a bit and over-expose the former. Oh well. In the middle of the day my friend and I had lunch at Lebanese Taverna, which is absolutely delicious. I'm so spoiled living in a major metropolitan area: we have so much ethnic cuisine that we even have a chain of Lebanese places. Yum!

P.S. - A longer write-up and my better drawings from that day are here, but as all the models were nude, it's probably NSFW.

  1. I love the idea of putting one of your drawings into the gluebook. It's not so different from putting a photo in... though I guess you typically don't put your own photos in. But anyway. I approve. Because I knew you were worried. :-)
