Sketching the Bride

After a long break, I attended a virtual life drawing session hosted by Draw Breath. With no background in what was happening, I stepped in and sketched the first few poses of well, the bride…

Turns out, there was a twist in the plot, and she was a zombie bride (I know nothing about zombies or any genre of horror, so I might be missing references to what her poses were about.) But all sorts of weapons appeared…

And just as the plot was thickening and I might have started to figure what was going on, I realized I didn’t have the time to stick through the whole session and had to leave early.

It was still a ton of fun, I love drawing people and the stories they tell, and miss drawing in person so much. Until I can do that, I need to come back to these sessions as often as I can.

Sketches made in watersoluble pencil, watercolor, brushpen and ink, and acrylic ink on newsprint. Sizes are between 8×10 inches and 9×12 inches . They’re for sale and come signed, $45 each. Shipping included within the US. Just email me and ask if you want one.

    • Sophia, I am an illustrator b profession and I often do urban sketches and commissioned work for pay. But I also just urban-sketch all the time. Most of the hundreds of sketchbooks I have full of sketches at home are done on vacation and around my daily life. I sell prints of my work too on etsy.
