Last night I went to a very different and special Life Drawing session in Angel, London. It was themed as Voodoo/Hoodoo, to mark the death of an old Voodoo Queen called Marie Laveau, popular in New Orleans many many year ago.
The class was really cool, with a small stage set up with bones, skulls, voodoo dolls, etc and the model was dressed up at Marie and acted as though we were contacting her from beyond the grave!
Then after Marie, we had another model who was dressed a Haiti Hoodoo Princess. Both awesome models and great costumes!
This is why I love living in London!
Hopefully Ill find time to take one of these into PS and make proper characters from them!

My favourite thing about working on shorter projects with fast turnaround is that I get to share the results with you all so much sooner!
I have been working with an animation company down in Kent called COGNITIVE MEDIA, helping design characters and props for the series of Ted-Ed animated lectures they are producing. And the first one I collaborated with them on is now online and ready to view!
Big pat on the back to all the guys there who worked on it too, as they really brought my designs to life ad produced a fun (and educational!) video!

More nakey people! But at least it's a break away from life drawing, eh? @London_For_Free posted this lovely photo today because yesterday there was a naked bike ride through London. Did this happen in any other cities? Quite a cool thing, but it grosses me out that so many people used the public rental bikes :S I dont like the thought of getting on one of those things once someones coin purse has been pressed up against it all warm and sweaty *shudders*
Maybe someone can help me with some computer settings shizzle too. The colours of the image above are NOT what I see when I save the psd. Why are the colours all washed out and crappy outside of PS?
