Standing room only. 10341679_770582329701584_857805270499656085_nFirst attempt. Redone with a stronger appeal.

The Drawing Club, with professor Bob Kato, moved to a new location. Gallery Nucleus is now hosting the class. Moulin Rouge was the theme for the evening and the model, Sara Streeter, was fabulous.

I have been attending this class for a couple of years. This is the first time I didn’t draw but used paper. I have hesitated to be the only one not drawing, but it went well. Last Thursday was full of energy and talent. It was invigorating to create in an environment like that.

Great artists like John Musker, Ron Husband, Mike Swofford, Brett Bean, Lizzie Nichols and many more attended. Their work was published in Bob Kato’s most recent book, The Drawing Club : Master the Art of Drawing Characters from Life.

Copy the Masters

I learned Degas, Cassatt, Cezanne, Picasso and other great masters were copyists in Paris’ Louvre. I am encouraged to continue copying their work while reading and listening to their biography’s.

I spent a lot of time drawing today. I spend most days creating art, learning about art or drawing, but today needed to be just a drawing day. Although I would say I am a paper artist, ultimately I am a creator. I love being a paper artist and I don’t feel limited by it, but some days I need to put the X-ACTO down and grow as an artist by just drawing. Sometimes I even need a reminder that I can draw.

I am currently trying something new. Both new for me and something that, I don’t believe, has ever been done before. I won’t say what it is yet, but it can either be great or a failure. I’ve failed a lot, so failure isn’t what plagues me. It’s succeeding in this new venture that is weighing on me. Having to produce something for clients that may or may not work is scary. Art can have limitations but has no rules.

Voice Actors

I highly recommend this documentary on voice actors and their craft. It’s now streaming on Netflix.”I Know That Voice” (2013) http://www.imdb.com/title/tt2113683/

Pictured below is myself and June Foray (http://www.imdb.com/name/nm0004931/). Ms. Foray is one-of-a-kind.
