Death by chocolate

This week I went to an unusual event held at the flagship Cass Art store in Islington- a life drawing session run by Death drawing, an art macarbre drawing group.

The theme was Death by Chocolate and it featured 2 models interacting with cakes and chocolate. The poses were short, between 2 and 10 mins, which was great for loosening up. It would have been great to have a longer pose nearer the end as I really liked the way one model was costumed. Covered in gold dust, painted face and tribal decorations- she looked pretty badass. They were voluptuous ladies too, who are always fun to draw.

If you get a chance to go to one, i'd definitely recommend it. The venue wasn't the best; it's quite a small space so there's a bit of overcrowding. But if you want something different from the standard quiet room with only the sound of scribbling pencils and odd cough, then this is a nice change. I couldnt get Sugar, Sugar (oh honey honey) out of my head for rest of the evening!!
