Every year, for the last life drawing session of the year, we call in all models and go for a Christmas Party!
It was the last Sunday session of 2019 and Anna took to the stage and wowed all with some fine poses. The artists weren’t too shabby and produced some great work.
We had a student photographer, Alice, come along to our ‘Draw The Artist’ event a couple of weeks back. She simply wanted the opportunity to document a life drawing event and the ‘models’ and artists present were all OK with that.
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.
This was the first piece written about us and unfortunately it no longer exists apart from a grainy and degraded photo of the actual pages…
e loosely organised a meetup in London and Andy and Kate took in four exhibitions and were joined by others from Wales for a couple of them.
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…
Jake and Indie, degree students at The University of South Wales, approached Andy and asked would he be up for a film being made about his lifestyle. They had been pointed towards him by jake’s partner who said Andy was a Cardiff Character…
Andy was approached by Dana Inglehart, a filmaker undertaking a masters at the Uni of South Wales. Dana wanted to make a film about Andy’s work as a life model for hen parties and of course he helped her out.
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.
