Total Lockdown 2 – But Not Quite Yet…

Yes, here we go again. Of course this was coming. It’s no surprise. They’ve been talking about it since early September. But still I’m shocked….

The Small Print

We want to keep things simple so there is no complicated and lengthy terms and conditions page, no small print if you like, just bold…

Drawing Ghosts

We have found that ghosts are not likely to stick around or to remain seated for longer poses so expect to sketch quickly flashes of light and body parts in a rarefied atmosphere that positively impacts your drawing style.

Virus…

We encourage you all to continue drawing and when we are allowed back in contact with each other we’ll be delivering a series of special events and offers, not to encourage you to get back out with us, we don’t think there’ll be much need for that, but to celebrate the wonderful community of artists that we have become.

How Much Do Life Models Cost?

Well, you can’t actually buy a person, that isn’t legal in the UK although we are sure it happens, but you can rent a person for a few hours and they will pose for you, an individual artist or a college group or privately delivered art class or a media company etc…

Women Only!

2019 saw a raft of organisations artists and colleges asking for women only models. None could offer any valid reason apart from perhaps a college stating that the students were working on a project aimed at women.

Happy Naked People

Anna Korecka, a fine student filmmaker in her final year at The Atrium at The University of South Wales has worked with Andy and his team at Cardiff Life Model Collective and has made a short documentary film for BBC Wales

Animalistic Andy!

Animals can be difficult to work with, along with children, as the saying goes, but Andy did well, keeping the broad selection of wild beasts under control. Delving deeply into his method acting processes and delivering a tour de force of earthy, visceral and startlingly real animal poses, the assembled artists will be drawing on this session for inspiration for some time to come 😉

Amy Was Animated ;)

If you’d like to book a model for your life drawing session simply email Andy with your idea/plan/date etc and he’ll be in touch

From The Life Room

First of, hopefully, a unique series of quotes heard by our models whilst in the life room…
