Back in my city that never sleeps 😴! From 70 degrees in LA now 50’s in NYC too cold in Oct. guess brutal winter is coming! ❄️ So... my 1st winter jackets on Sat. Took a Weekend Shameless selfie juxtaposed w my imaginary self-portrait of 2016 done at “DRAWING NY” held by The National Arts Club In Gramercy Park. Earlier that day my friend Simeone & I attend an event at the club... then the next... was a drawing class... it turns out the man who runs this session/instructor was Simon Levenson, who I happened to studied w at the Art Students League NYC. We did a yr long rigorous study of anatomy class w Frank Porcu, a famous instructor who teaches old traditional way of studying anatomy w clay... step by step building muscle on metal skeleton... anyhow when he saw me there... handed pencil w few pc of papers to stay & draw... so unexpectedly on Sat nite... after a social event... made these two drawings... while my friend Simeone was there taking some pic of me drawing ✍️ from a live model.... firsti did warm up 5 mins quick Skech as she was in her pose... then on 2nd sitting... my imagination takes over... expressing my emotions of Sat. Early evening mood of myself... feeling excitement of unknown as I was heading out to downtown... butterfly 🦋 is ready to spread wings on Sat nite in freezing cold Jan in 2016. Am now back in NY but my italian yogi 🧘♀️ friend & my wingman, Simeone is in Cali. 🙂!
