We were hunting through our archived files on our external drive and got distracted by some of the ghosts of electrons past. From a “Form and Colour” class during Vivian’s design school days, she had a life drawing session where *gasp* the model was not unclothed. For some reason that would have been too scandalous for a university to actually have an unclothed model. Before design school, Vivian had spent a year at art school where the life-drawing models actually posed in the buff. So its somewhat odd that it would be too scandalous to have a ‘true’ life-drawing model for a nationally-recognized design school. Or maybe it would’ve just been too much excitement for the engineering students who shared the same building.
In any case, here’s a 30-minute long pose, dated from about six years ago. One minute moving poses usually make for more fun and dynamic art, but we can’t seem to find any of those that were saved for posterity.
Maybe it’s time to pick up the conte and the newsprint and head back over to the art school for a life-drawing session? Loobylu did a “Friday Archives” feature, so maybe we’ll dig into the ol’ hard drive now and then and see what other dusty images there are.
