Entry for Jan 23, 2014

On the Thursday evening the TSA hosted a special event in conjunction with the Offsite Design Festival. Titled Illustration Noir, the evening had two hours of poses, music and sets channeling a Film Noir feeling.
Karen Justl, who teaches at the school handpainted some striking sets and other decorations, and models Shel and Sergio were in costumes loaned by Monarch Vintage, a local clothes store.
A number of people came out to draw, and I helped out with the hosting of the night. As a consequence my own drawing was not as focussed as it could have been. It was interesting to see a more Toons On Tap style drawing session taking place at the school, and a real drawing challenge. All of these are done with Pitt pen on 18 x 24" Canson Recycled Sketch paper. The top centre and bottom ones are roughly 4 minutes each, and the 2nd and 4th ones are roughly 15 minutes each.
