Here's some life drawing's that were on display at my first independant exhibition, I didn't have the money to frame these peices, so they were layed on fabric and covered with glass. I have alway's loved life drawing. I hope you like these drawing's, although there not the best photo's, you get the general idea.

Great news, I'm back up to number 5 on the Alternative chart of the IAC, I promise I won't get caught up in it this time, but thankyou for playing my song's everyone. Still haven't started recording the new song, and still writing the song for Jed.

Also, really looking forward to the next season of ITA, I've really missed it, well, not long now! Hope everyone's doing good, and taking care, thanks for all the shout's.

Hi Mikey,

I like the way you draw the human body. You have different styles and they are both eye appealing.

Did you have live models when you drew them? I always felt uncomfortable staring at them while I was drawing. I guess I'm just shy that way. How did you feel about it?

Hope your weekend is good!

My God, those are gorgeous, Mikey!! What does a girl have to do to get a piece of your artwork? You are a truly gifted soul. Thank you for sharing these drawings.

My first love was an artist, and we were poor and in college when I saw most of his work. Some of his best stuff was born of necessity, just like your glass on fabric presentation. It's elegant and fitting. Big wow...

Hey Zoe, I did feel a little uncomftable the first time I was in a class, but it soon goes when you concentrate on the drawing, and then once youv'e seen one, youv'e seen 'em all. Thankyou for your sweet complements here, take care.

Hi Natalie, it's not easy, there are a series of task's that need to be undertaken, firstly you must walk bare foot over hot coals, then, sorry, thankyou very much for wanting my artwork, I am sarcastic, it's a floor of mine. HOpe you still have fond memories of your first love, thankyou again for your shout, take care.

Hiya Lucy(blog buddy), hope your doing good, I've been in many exhibitions, but the one's I'm most proud of are the independant ones, where two artist friends and myself used to create galleries in empty shop spaces. Our first exhibition was called 'Mildly British', the second was 'The Institution', and the last was called 'The Miscellany', and that was completely curated by me, and showed over 30 of the best local artist's in the area. But since that last exhibition, music has been my sole concern. Thanks for the shout, hope you understand, let me know? Take care.

Thankyou Justin, you are a star my friend, thanks.

Hi Mikey
They're very good. I've been life drawing for 20 years and it is the ultimate challenge for an artist don't you agree? Trying to capture weight and rhythm and coping with foreshortening - these skills can take a lifetime to learn.
Your style looks similar to mine. I'm very influendced by renaissance artists such as Michelangelo. Could be we had the same tutor?? Mine was the same as school 18 years as today . He retired in 1990 and built a studio on the back of his house set up just for life drawing classes. He's a fascinating character as he's been a semi-pro jazz musician all his life and only took up teaching as a 'day job' - taught me alot about music and how rhythm is the key to all of the art beit on a piece of paper or canvas or performing music.
Have a happy Sunday!
p.s. Here'a an idea of an episode of ITA - you could do a life drawing during the show - no pressure!!!!!

Dear Mikey

Life drawing is my very favourite.
It is life that inspires me, therefore it is what I like to do best.
I love to write, as well, & that, too, is taken from real life.

You have amazing creative talent & many areas of art. I am very impressed.

My life is so busy with raising my 3 children, work, taking care of my household &, of course, skiing with my family in the winter. We enjoy many summer sports, too, along with camping on weekends.

Maybe some day I will have more time for my creative side. It has not gone away & every day I gather more information & ideas for future works.

Thanks for sharing so much with us & I'm looking forward to more.

Dear Mikey,

I watched the podcast of ITA1 and I realised how much I have missed you and Rachel... but as you said not long to go now! Can't bloody wait, LOL!

I hope this rainy, miserable Sunday finds you and Rene OK.

I think these drawings are wonderful!!! I think you have such a great talent for this, and for music too, of course....Please, start painting again...

I offer myself to be your model...well, I have such a great body that I will have to talk to my manager to see if I have some free time...ha,ha...forget about what I've just said, please, forget it, forget it...;oP

So I poo-pooed on the heart, in the painting. The inspiration is beyond cool. Your response, your reaction, amazing. It's no mystery I would not recognize a heart, but we'll leave it on the floor.

The life drawings are really great. I like the clarity in the two nudes and then I like the energy in the darker, charcoal drawings. I love the seated figure especially.

thanks again, for these.

Once again, very good! You are quite talented with charcoal. I suggest using a charcoal picture as an album cover, perhaps raise the print in places? (I love those CD's with the folder around the case...) It would be very striking. Eye-catching. Hell, I'd buy it!
