    I had a fabulous time last night! I loved the variety of sizes and shapes of the women on stage and their performances. I filled up half a notebook on sketches. It would be fantastic if this were done again, perhaps with a few more 30 or even 60 second poses. Or a few "freeze" moments like I seem to remember models doing in art school.
    By the way! Schpongle Hooping? I have heard about schpongel for ages and I am so happy to have finally seen this performer! That was amazing!

    Thanks to those for coming and partaking in the fun! I don't know about you guys, but I've never been more challenged at sketching than drawing a live performing contortionist. Phew! Leah and Mike, I know you would have been there if you could-- we plan to make another happen at some point, no idea when!

      I agree. I must have sketched 40 or 50 poses, often from memory or just an impression. The best performers didn't know how to stop moving, but their motions were so beautiful.

    Wonderful meeting and drawing these performers, as well as seeing some beautiful art downstairs.

    Ahhhh! Work needs me early tomorrow morning. Unfortunately I won't be able to make it. Hopefully this happens again! Hope you all have an amazing time! Can't wait to see pictures of the event!

    Just a heads-up, some artists will be selling prints, canvas prints, and originals at this event. So if you think you might be interested, you might want to bring a little cash. =)
