Cristian in the Forest

I attended a life drawing session with Fat Life Drawing and really enjoyed sketching Cristian. He seemed so happy to be in the middle of the forest, enjoying the calm and quiet and knowing there were so many of us from all over the world joining in to sketch him.

Here are some sketches from that session. I started out in my Stillman & Birn Beta sketchbook, enjoying capturing little vignettes.

It never ceases to amaze me that I could be in California and Cristian could be in the forest in Norway and all of this works..

I think you can tell from these sketches that Cristian really enjoyed the session. I’ve never seen a model smile as much as he does!

If you don’t know Fat Life Drawing, check them out. They spotlight and celebrate marginalized bodies in their life drawing sessions.
