Figure Drawing February 10th, 2020

I was (as usual) at Steve’s on Monday night.

I really do love it there. It’s filled with my kind of people. I was talking with my therapist earlier in the day. I have an over-protective “Protector Part” I tend to know at all times who is around me, where the exits are, have full awareness of anything my brain my interpret as a threat. Restaurants and bars can be mentally exhausting. It occurred to me that I don’t do that AT ALL when I am at Steve’s. Sunday I got there kind of late for the group event and I sat at the first empty drawing horse that I found. It was right near the door (with my back to it). I hadn’t even thought about it until Monday discussing my “security” thoughts.

That was a really nice realization and made me appreciate him and the studio even more.

Yes, I know I have issues. That’s why I have a therapist 🙂

anyhow…. here are the drawings that I made yesterday.


And the time lapse:


No. Mia did not spontaneously transform into a rabbit for one of the poses. Sometimes I catch myself getting frustrated with my drawings. There are a variety of things that I do to get past that. This time it was drawing Mia as a rabbit. It may be the kind of thing I would do again. You never know.

  1. I would think that any place that has live nude models has to be a place of safety. How much more vulnerable are you than when naked?!

    • You would think that – but contrast that with say a strip club and you will find that the nudity and security have little correlation with one another. Obvious very different sorts of patrons.
      Either way I am working on it 🙂
