Orbital Comics/London: Life Drawing Masterclass

During a November 14-28 visit to London, Doug conducted a Life Drawing Masterclass at Orbital Comics, located in the heart of Leicester Square.  The November 16th event featured Manko, a popular U.K. model; it was coordinated by Chris J. Thompson of Orbital Comics.  

Attendees to the sold out event were professional artists, animators, graphics designers, etc.

Doug and I met Chris a few years ago on an Air Canada flight from Toronto to San Diego.  He was covering the 5-day convention for First Comics News; Doug was exhibiting with the Big Wow Art group.



Doug organized the evening into three poses to allow ample time for drawing, meeting the artists and doing critiques of their work.





The second pose of the evening; both artist and model are pleased!





The final pose of the evening.
