It was January 12th and a chilly Sunday in Cardiff but Little Man Coffee Companies doors were open and the on the premises baked and cooked cakes and snacks as well as a range of coffees, teas and somethings stronger were on offer…
You know, we never take a break, well, apart from Christmas and New Year when everything seems to close for a couple of weeks, whether you like it or not…
From Titian’s exquisite Venus of Urbino to the warm sensuality of John Singer Sargent’s The Bathers, nudes have inspired some of the greatest works of art.
It was a standard evening life drawing for us at Cardiff Life Model Collective BUT we had the BBC along and the producers brought with them Hayley from ‘The Call Centre’.
I first came across Turnip Starfish through Kat, an art tutor I have known for some time. The owner of the animation company, Nick, was teaching a first session of life drawing at Cardiff and the Vale and I think this was at the old campus near St Mellons.
There is a real problem with events agencies and booking agencies of all kinds. They invariably are not skilled in the product they are selling, invariably they want you to have no contact with the client in advance of the event, invariably they will place staff to a job without proper knowledge of their suitability…
Cardiff Life Models are unique. We regularly have more than one model working a session and often deliver performances, some well planned and some made up to a theme on the evening.
We’ll be offering up this opportunity again sometime in the spring of 2020 so if you fancy getting your model on then do watch this space 🙂
Cardiff Life Model Collective (CLMC), run by Andy Muse, deserves all the support and credit it gets and needs.
Anna documented our standard life drawing event at our drop in session on Tuesday 3rd November and which had two models working, Anna and Andy 🙂
