Figure Drawing Tonight at Westwood

January 21, 2010  |  Classes  |  No Comments


Created with flickr slideshow.

Tonight is a special event at the Westwood ASIFA sponsored figure class. We will have our “After” session with Dione, who modeled back in July when she was 8 months pregnant. Happily, she is back tonight with her baby Ruby! We will try some poses with both and hope to get some great drawings of mother and child.

A newborn session for the new year!

The Story of Boozer Doodle, Part One

January 16, 2010  |  Classes, Events, Figure Drawing, Joe's Work  |  3 Comments

A collaboration drawing from 11/04/09- Election Night!

Shockaboom Election

The idea for Boozer Doodle started with an e-mail

from one of the artists at my weekly figure drawing class, James Burns. He sent me a link to the Dr. Sketchy’s website and suggested I try something like that with our class. I had been tinkering with some ideas, once even had the class form an “in the round” seating arrangement and do sequential drawings that I later compiled with fellow artist Raquel Asturias. I’ve lost her file but was able to put together a Flash file from the original scans.

About a dozen artists sat in a circle around the model. We all numbered our drawings in the sequence that we were seated, then each drew three sequential poses from model Ana Balka. I later scanned in all the drawings and re-sized and positioned them in Photoshop, then created the final transition movie in Flash:

This was a fun experiment, and I had been thinking about trying some different approaches with the models. One idea was to have  them act out a blind script pose by pose, and reveal a story through the final drawings.

When I saw the Dr. Sketchy’s website, I saw the possibility of something apart from the regular figure class- something fun, and more in the tradition of the Moulin Rouge and the bawdy night life drawings of Toulouse-Lautrec!

After reading several of Dr. Sketchy’s creator Molly Crabapple’s ideas for using a bar setting and hiring performers for models, I quickly thought of the Vortex in Midtown, with its separate back showroom for the burlesque group Dames Aflame.

This was an especially fun piece I directed for Cartoon Network Latin America when I was still at Primal Screen. The writer is Craig Adams, a great guy and fun to work with (that’s him on the voice over). I got to create original characters and come up with lots of gags for the spot.

This was one of a series of bumpers for the Cartoon Network re-face we did at Primal Screen in the late ’90’s. It was great working on these icons of the animation world, the heroes of my childhood!
