Valentine Themed Sketch Party

On Friday night I went to a sketch party down town. It took us a while to find our way there, but it was totally worth it! Many different models in costume on two model stands, there was booze, chocolate(to go with the valentines theme) and a DJ, and the place was packed! We left around midnight and some folks were still arriving. It was cool to see the different gear and materials people were using. I saw a couple of people with laptop and cintiq setup. I brought along my usual sketching gear and some watercolors. Here are a few of my sketches from that night.

Alegrias on Youtube

I finally decided to post my thesis film Alegrias on youtube. It was a labour of love to make this film, I enjoyed every minute of it. Inspired by flamenco music and dance which I have been studying since I was about 12 years of age. I finally made a trip to Spain several years ago to really learn the "gitano" or "gypsy" way to dance. Much of the imagery in the film was inspired by that visit.
