It's been a long while since I last blogged.
Almost nothing good came out of it. And I say almost nothing because a few good friendships came into my life as one went bad. I got my first gallery showing, and I am back working with Conan and the writers.
Now with the year about to end I hit another good turn, this one artistic.
I had a teacher who always told me I should make it a point to draw from a model and less from photos. Over the years I've made good on that advice, going to different workshops back in New York and here in Los Angeles. Though in LA this part of my career has started to take on a life of its own.
I first noticed a major change in my work in August. I went to a workshop called "Gone With the Wind". Jennifer Fabos Patton of the Gallery Girls was one of the models. I felt I did some incredible work at that session.
After a few other workshops that went great, I started playing with the idea of working with a model one on one. Today, I finally took the leap.
Artist/ Model, Auralynn Nguyen was the subject for my very first private session! I did a total of 7 images with her and I am happy with how it all turned out. It's safe to say I will be planning many more of these sessions and if possible try to get some of these drawings into gallery shows.
2010. It started as a shitty year which slowly has been turning around. I think 2011 is going to be great.
