Gotta love those gals!

In lieu of a long observation on anything, here’s an advert for Dr Sketchy’s anti art school at Mighty Mighty this Saturday. I’ll be there, paper and pastels in hand. Last time I won a prize for the best drawing on a hard boiled egg! It was an Easter theme and tested everyone’s creative abilities on a smooth oval surface. The fabulous model for these drawings was the very cute Ponie Ryder- some 2 minute gestural drawings and a longer study in pastels below.

Afterword: Went to Dr Sketchy's yesterday and was greatly entertained by 'The One Night Stands' who sang and danced and were cheeky as, in their great retro outfits. These gals are fabulous and wow, can they sing! Thrillingly I won model's choice for my pastel portrait- not pictured here as I gave it to the lovely Emmy who posed for it. This got me a $50 for Chow where I intend to spend it on their delicious food sometime soon!

Hey Fi - I saw Sue Skerman at a family gathering yesterday and told her what you;d said on your blog about her impact on you as a drawing teacher. She was thrilled to hear it. X
