Filling in Vacancies

Running a studio like Minerva’s is a Herculean task. Scheduling models for 3 sessions a day, seven days a week, alternating male and female and making sure they show up is monumental. For more that 23 years Minerva has done this and with great finesse. Occasionally the system fails which happened recently when one of the models got the session wrong, so I filled in. I always am willing to model, and this time I had an unusual nostalgic feeling while posing, the quiet, the air temperature with the fans blowing softly brought back an unrelated memories of summer in Colorado many years ago. I have thought about why modelling is so enjoyable, but there are a lot of complex things going on. Performance, supporting artists, feeling the internal dynamics of the body, the self image of a pose versus the artists perception of the pose. Its really fascinating. Anyway, here are 2 drawings by Kathi Kirkpatrick of me from that session.20160824_Kathi_1

    Can’t agree with you more.
