mikemikebernard.jpg Fellow figure-drawing groupers. At Cogan's afterwards, one of them told a really disgusting anecdote about one of our male models. Should I share it with you? No, I guess not. Figure-drawing guys can handle it, but not many others can. There's nothing that makes you feel more naked than actually being naked. It really makes you appreciate clothing. Clothing was one of God's greatest inventions. I wouldn't venture out without it. I have nothing but admiration for our models (except that one male model.) To be naked in a group of clothed people is one thing, but to have those people sitting in a circle staring at you is another. I tried to do a nude self-portrait the other day, and it was a disaster. Note to self: next time not at work.
