The proposed Cardiff Life Model Collective life drawing show, ‘Life Lines’, has been cancelled due to the intervention of a couple that I have endeavoured to help and support and who are currently claiming copyright infringement or something along those lines.
Please remember that google have disabled the Cardiff Life Model Collective listing on google maps and Google my business and have done so in opposition to their own rules and are currently not responding to any attempt to make contact with them.
We used to do a fair bit of work at Crosskeys. Those modelling hours disappeared this academic year as the college decided to not provide life drawing (we’re unsure of how they will be able to get their students through their course work commitments) due to issues with paying us by invoice and also, we believe, the lack of desire amongst the tutors to deliver life drawing sessions.
I’m self employed. I operate two small business’. I don’t ask for funding or support from any agency. I simply plod along, delivering events that I know work well and accepting that some will make good income and some will not. So, the rough with the smooth…
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.
