Sunday 15 March 2020

A pair of giggly friends came for the first time, one a seasoned creative, the other a total newbie, exploring this discipline, totally inexperienced; sometimes it requires as much much bravery on the part of artist to see themselves move through the creative process as it does the model to allow themselves to be seen unfiltered.

When A Model Can’t Keep Still…

Drawing The Line…

Please note that we will remove any of these privately operated proscribed art providers if they advise us that they are paying models £20ph or over and that they will mirror any increases in pay that we make in the future and that they do not start delivering life drawing in direct competition with us, for example, starting a new city centre life drawing evening on a Tuesday… As for the colleges and universities, we’ll remove those from this list if they choose to enter into a service level agreement with us for life model provision and agree to a five year plan with payment by invoice.

One Sunday Afternoon…

It was January 12th and a chilly Sunday in Cardiff but Little Man Coffee Companies doors were open and the on the premises baked and cooked cakes and snacks as well as a range of coffees, teas and somethings stronger were on offer…

First Week Back

You know, we never take a break, well, apart from Christmas and New Year when everything seems to close for a couple of weeks, whether you like it or not…

Arts Funding

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…
