Most of my posts so far have been Molly Crabapple related, but that's been where much of my art focus has been the past month or two. She's at the center of a pretty impressive network of artists, talent, projects, and workshops, so as I've done more work for her I've been drawn into some of it myself.
Perhaps the most enjoyable aspect I've become involved in is Dr. Sketchy's Anti-Art School. At its core it's a life drawing class, but one that's made more interesting and fun by holding it in a bar, using burlesque dancers as models, and adding themes and contests. With chapters all around the world the idea brings in artists of all levels and each chapter has a dedicated following. I've only been attending for a couple months but it has certainly become one of my favorite activities and has boosted my art output.
I did the piece above for Molly at the request of the week's model. It was another chance for me to play around with a common style, the tabloid. As always, Molly's projects continue to be both fun and challenging, so if most of my blog ends up being work for her I can hardly complain.
