You drew the uncomfortable person in your class as well as the naked model. You crack me up.

But Ellen - you should just shut up about it. Poor Tammy. I can't claim to understand her, but I still feel the pity for the girl who saw herself in that sketch.


Tami - she was from class (since she is clothed), but she had been pulled out to sit with the model. I know this because I recognize the line behind them - those are the model's stool and folding chairs covered with sheets (figure drawing, not background drawing). My teacher was innovative. Naked people were not enough for him. There was always a purpose. Once he put the model in the closet so we had to draw the detail from memory, or else visit him in the closet. I'm guessing he felt people in class weren't trying to draw faces? And the guy was naked already, but he needed someone else?

that being said. wow. you do have some talent there. Very good job!

do you still draw?

and I was a nude model for art classes once upon a time.



He put the model in the closet so you'd have to VISIT HIM IN THE CLOSET? That's a post right there.


Wow. You are talented in so many ways.

Is that a Peter Pan collar on Ellen, er, I mean, Tammy?

So I usually read at work; but I had to keep scrolling up and down to keep penis off my screen. Now that I'm in my 40's I don't want to be the creepy old lady at work. Figured I'd wait until I got home to really look at the drawing; and I see the guy was really hairy. And also not circumcised?


mrs Hall - I haven't drawn or painted a thing for years, for some reason. I probably peaked, and then lost interest.
Magpie - It's mentioned at the end of this post on my first day in figure drawing class: http://www.mocklog.com/queen_mediocretia/2008/07/art.html
Hattie - No, not really, this is pretty bad.. The knee is good, but the rest is very amateur.
Benchmark - Excellent quote!
Hot Mom - I'm not at all sure. She's blond. She doesn't look at all like me. Maybe she symbolizes me in this vision of the future.
Amy in StL - Not circumsized. That was one of the first things I noticed about him.


I'm almost speechless with laughter every time I look at this. The sketch alone is enough, but Tammy finding it - priceless.


Mare - I think it's the first time in five years I've felt mortified. It doesn't happen often.
