I’m fairly certain that I have some Irish folk among my readership, so Happy St. Patrick’s Day! Thursday’s the big day, and I will have to navigate the city’s raucous festivities up close and personal. No, I’m not attending the parade, but my art modeling job is right on the parade route. I’m at 43rd and Fifth Avenue which, New Yorkers will know, is right in the wheelhouse. If I can just walk unmolested from the subway to the job without too many, “Heeyyy, baby, kiss me I’m Irish!!” propositions then I’ll be okay. But maybe I’ll pose with a shamrock 😆
Just a few quick notes. Check out this article in the New York Observer about the nude art market scene. And guess who that is in the picture! Also, I’d like to share with everyone the online arts and culture magazine Glasschord. They’ve put out two issues so far, “Rebirth” and “Provenance”, and they’re off to an impressive start. Glasschord publishes prose, poetry, and visual arts, and it’s definitely worth checking out. I know Greg MacAvoy, the design director, and he is a highly creative, artistic guy.
Last, but definitely not least, my dear friend Fred Hatt is celebrating his two year blogging birthday over at Drawing Life! The two year milestone is an awesome one. So big congrats to Fred!! To commemorate here on Museworthy, here’s a Fred Hatt drawing of me, in my usual state of torment, distress, and sadness. Nah, I’m kidding. It’s just a reclining pose 🙂 This was done at Figureworks Gallery.
