Jiri and the Temporary End

Well, the inevitable has happened. The open drawing sessions at the Sterling campus have been canceled indefinitely. Thankfully, there are a number of people (locals, students and faculty) that have shown their support and offered ideas for how to self-fund these sessions in the coming quarters. I am hopeful that these will be up again in time for the Spring quarter.

In the meantime, I am continuing into the last stretch of Mr. Big, scheduled to be done by the first week of March. Hope to be able to post some of these pages soon. And of course, look for the book in it’s printed glory this Fall from Skyhorse Publishing.

As for my life drawing, here’s a sampling from a few weeks back with Jiri. I have a little bit of a backlog of these drawings from the past few weeks which I will post here every so often.

Stay tuned.
