i draw naked people
This is a small collection of the naked people I have drawn and or painted. They come from different projects based on fluidity or tone or abstraction but one magical thing ties them all together. Nakedness. Sadly enough it isn't as the posters say. Nude models do not need to be attractive. All that is required of them is the willingness to shed clothes and be directed into various awkward and revealing positions.
You might say that this is easy, hell you might be the god-blessed sort of person who likes to shimmy down to the buff every friday night after a few stubbies at the local bar. You're probably thinking 'Hey, being paid to be naked and stand still sounds good to me!' But I hope you've been taking your advanced yoga lessons, your mind-over-matter courses, and have a lot of self esteem.
Showing up to work to be butt naked (while sober) in winter (with no heating) while a bunch of people stare at your member (do not think sexy thoughts) and draw horribly ugly pictures of you (for hours...yes you need to be able to stand still for 15-30 minutes) is much harder than you think.
But if you do finally come to the conclusion that being a life model is the job for you,
I'll be seeing you.
