Sunday Night Drawing at Tisch..

I've started a free Sunday evening drawing session in one of the massive shooting bays here at Tisch-Asia. If you happen to be in Singapore, they are every Sunday 6-9pm, through May. You can view the Facebook event page here.

We all work in a visual medium, whether you're animators or filmmakers, drawing is the language of that medium. To develop this language, drawing from life has been proven over the centuries to be effective.  Also, it's a great way to relax.. unplug your brain.. get away from your computer.. meet some cool people, and participate in a ritual that is just about as old as art itself. Last night was our second session!  After we break for the summer, we'll pick up again in September.

When I was living in New York City, I often attended sessions at Minerva Durhams Spring Studio in Soho, and I've modeled my sessions after hers... Back in the 90's we used to go over and draw with Minerva for an hour during lunch (we worked across the street at Jumbo Pictures, doing "Doug"), and they were very formative years for me. I want to try to create that atmosphere here. Hope to see you!
