Taryn Piana posed as a saucy Susie Homemaker last night, throwing in a bit of Gil Elvgren pin-up style toward the end. Great poses! I added some imaginary props and some tone just to give them a bit of finish. Thanks Taryn!

We had the lovely Debra Haydn as a young lady in 50s/60s formal wear. The story line we made up is she arrives at the dance only to be abandoned by her date, but in the end she's happy to be rid of him. Anyway, that was her motivation through the evening of poses, see if you think it comes through in the drawings! Thanks Debra!

This came from a sketch I did of the great Stacy Walker dressed as a vampire hunter. (the candelabra was made out of cardboard!) I wanted to take it to a more finished piece, sort of a Hammer Films horror poster from the 60's. Stacy battles the undead in the bowels of the catacombs.Punch those lurid colors! Thanks again, Stacy!

Here are a few from the last 3 weeks.John Tucker returns as Black Bart, but I was bored with trying to capture reality, so went to the cartoony side. I don't know why it's so hard for me to exaggerate when drawing from life. The ladies of course are NOT cartoony. Peggy Moore does her great sassy western barmaid, and Daniella did a very sophisticated Downton Abbey set. Thanks to all.

More fantastic costumes and posing prowess at the drawing workshop. Sara did some lovely figure work with fabric drape, Stacy was a great archer/ amazon warrior, and Lauren did an 80's Antonio fashion set. Many thanks to our great models!

Here are a couple sample pieces I've been working on in spare moments. We have a '60s blockbuster movie style poster, "Sword of the Valkyrie". Sword wielding vixens versus evil WW1 style robots! Also a sample for a nonexistent book, "Texas Cowgirls". Hmmm. Maybe a coffee table book!

Here are some sketches from the last 2 months or so. A torch singer, a rock and roll girl, and a bikini costume that I was never quite clear on. Doesn't matter if the poses are great, which they were. Many thanks to our great models!

Here are a couple of pieces I've been dabbing at for a while, Bride of the Vampire, and Very Cherry.Similar in presentation (reclined figure) but very different in tone. Photoshop/digital paint combos, a lot of fun to see how different I can make them.
